Owusu and Johnson led Toronto to a 1-0 victory over Revolution

TORONTO (AP) — Prince Owusu scored midway through the second half and Sean Johnson scored in Toronto FC’s 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday evening.

Owusu, making his fifth start, found the net in the 66th minute to give Johnson the only goal he would need. Owusu’s three previous goals this season have come as a substitute.

Johnson stopped three shots in each half for Toronto (4-4-1), snapping a three-game losing streak.

Henrich Ravas had seven saves for New England (1-6-1).

Toronto got off to a 3-1-1 start with four clean sheets, including a 1-0 win over the Revolution in early March. Johnson was subsequently injured and had allowed seven goals in two starts since his return.

The Revolution’s Tomás Chancalay is still looking for his first goal this season after scoring six times in 11 games last season. He entered the game with 33 shots, the third highest total in the league, and added three more after coming on as a substitute Nacho Gil in the 72nd minute.

New England has been shut out three times this season and has not scored multiple goals in any game under first-year coach Caleb Porter. The Revs posted a 2-0-1 mark in their last three visits to Toronto.

Toronto travels to Orlando City on Saturday. New England returns home to play Inter Miami on Saturday.
