FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Heber Araujo dos Santos scored his first goal of the season, Sean Johnson had three saves and New York City FC beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Wednesday night.

Heber headed a corner kick by Ronald Matarrita off the far post to make it 2-0 in the 72nd minute.

City (4-5-0) has won three games in a row and four of its last five after opening the season with four consecutive losses.

New England (2-2-5) has just one multi-goal game this season — a 2-1 win over D.C. United on Aug. 25.

An own goal by the Revolution's Michael Mancienne opened the scoring in the 60th minute.
