MIAMI (AP) — Arnór Ingvi Traustason and Adam Buksa each scored two goals and the New England Revolution beat Inter Miami 5-0 in the first ever matchup between the teams. Traustason put away a free kick by Carles Gil, blistering a header into the side-net to open the scoring in the 15th minute, and chipped home a sharp ball as he fell backward to the ground to make it 3-0 in the 26th. Buksa’s scored in first-half stoppage time and capped the scoring in the 83rd minute. Miami (2-7-2), in its second MLS season, lost its franchise-record sixth consecutive game, scoring only once in that time. The Revolution (9-3-3) have won back-to-back games to become the points leader in all of MLS.
