Revolution tie Nashville 1-1 in weather-delayed game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Adam Buksa scored his fifth goal of the season in the 77th minute and the New England Revolution tied Nashville 1-1 on Friday night in a rainy, weather-delayed game.

New England (7-5-8) remained fifth in the Eastern Conference, three points behind playoff-bound Orlando. Nashville (6-6-7) had a two-game winning streak snapped.

Buksa, a second-half substitute, scored three minutes after Walker Zimmerman opened the scoring for Nashville in the 74th. Buksa took a pass at the top of the 18-yard box, cut back his defender and sent a shot past MLS shutout leader Joe Willis.

Zimmerman leaped over several New England players and headed Randall Leal’s corner kick into the upper left corner for his third goal of the season.

It was the second meeting between the teams. They played a scoreless draw at Gillette Stadium on Oct. 3.
