FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Veteran midfielder Steve Ralston came on to start the second half and scored on a penalty kick in the 80th minute to give the New England Revolution a 2-1 win over FC Dallas on Saturday night.

Sainey Nyassi scored the tying goal for the Revolution (2-0-1) in the second half, while Kenny Cooper scored in the first half for FC Dallas (0-3-0).

Ralston was awarded the penalty kick after New England’s Kheli Dube was fouled inside the penalty box area by defender George John.

Ralston scored his 70th MLS career goal, making goalkeeper Ray Burse commit himself and then sending a right-footed shot into the lower right corner of the net.
