FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) — Ethan Finlay and Federico Higuain scored and the Columbus Crew beat the New England Revolution on Saturday night to snap a 10-game winless streak.

Finlay tapped home a right-footer from inside the 6-yard box in the eighth minute. Hector Jimenez started a counterattack with a long feed to a streaking Justin Meram, who beat a defender and then played a left-footed cross to Finlay for a 1-0 lead. It was fourth goal of the season for Finlay, who scored 23 in 2014 and 2015 combined.

Higuain blasted a shot, from near the spot, into the net in the 49th. Ola Kamara had a takeaway from London Woodberry on the left flank, and then dropped a sliding feed between two defenders to a streaking Higuain.

Steve Clark had three saves for Columbus (4-8-11). He had allowed 16 goals in the last seven matches.

New England (6-11-8) has lost four in a row.
