Elsewhere in the MLS, ex-Tottenham and Fulham striker Clint Dempsey scored a last minute penalty as Seattle Sounders beat Minnesota United 2-1 in the Western Conference.

Joevin Jones' corner kick floated into the penalty area, where Minnesota's Jermaine Taylor was called for a hand ball.

Referee Ismail Elfath blew the final whistle as soon as Minnesota kicked off following Seattle taking the lead.

Ethan Finlay put Minnesota ahead in the 21st minute, but Chad Marshall replied for the visitor just past the half-hour mark.

David Villa cancelled out Teal Bunbury's goal, as Jonathan Lewis played hero with his 94th minute game victor.

Lewis scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time to give host NY a last-gasp 2-1 victory.

The 20-year-old rookie has scored his only two MLS goals in back-to-back games.

NY had fallen behind after 57 minutes at home against Revolution - who had not won for 13 away games - when Teal Bunbury followed up after goalkeeper Sean Johnson spilled a long-range shot. Andrew Farrell's shot from distance backed up goalkeeper Sean Johnson against the goal line, but he dropped the save and Bunbury scored from close range.

The Revolution are winless in their last 14 road games, a franchise-worst record.
