FOXBOROROUGH, Mass. -- Blas Perez headed in a shot off of the left goal post in the 87th minute to give FC Dallas a 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday.

Perez scored his first goal of the season, slipping between defenders after taking a pass from David Ferreira, to help FC Dallas improve to 4-1-0.

New England (1-2-1) was held scoreless for the third straight game, extending its goal drought to 298 minutes. The Revolution, who have scored only one goal this season, had three second-half scoring chances, including a point-blank shot by Kevin Alston in the 69th minute that was stopped by goalkeeper Raul Fernandez.
