Shalrie Joseph sent a slow rolling shot into the net in the 21st minute and the New England Revolution hung on for a 1-0 victory against the Seattle Sounders on Thursday night.

The Revolution (7-6-6) handed the Sounders (8-6-8) their second loss in 12 home games.

Joseph took a pass from Edgaras Jankauskas and got into the penalty area behind Seattle's Peter Vagenas. With goalkeeper Kasey Keller coming out to cut down the angle, Joseph fell while shooting. He got just enough of a touch on the ball to push it into a wide-open right corner before defender James Riley could get back to clear it off the line.

The goal was the sixth of the season for Joseph.
