FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Ethan Finlay scored in the 84th minute and the Columbus Crew beat New England 2-1 on Saturday night to extend the Revolution's losing streak to eight games.

Finlay ran down a long ball from Justin Meram, shrugged off a defender, and hammered a shot into the back of the net.

Federico Higuain opened the scoring for the Crew (6-7-8) in the 43rd minute, bending in a free kick around the wall from 23 yards out. New England's Kelyn Rowe missed on a left-footed shot in the 50th minute, but his ensuing corner kick to the head of A.J. Soares tied it at 1.

New England (7-11-2) is one short of the club record for consecutive losses set in 1997-98. The Revolution have scored four goals during the slide.

Wil Trapp received a yellow card in the 41st minute and will miss the Crew's next match on an accumulation suspension.
