LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Gustavo Bou scored in the 56th minute to give the New England Revolution a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Impact in the MLS is Back tournament Thursday night.
Bou maneuvered atop the penalty area before a blast that goalkeeper Clement Diop couldn't stop in the match played without fans at ESPN's Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World.
Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner preserved the victory in stoppage time with a big save on Ballou Tabla's curling shot from distance.
The game came as expansion Nashville SC was forced to withdraw from the tournament earlier Thursday after nine players tested positive for coronoavirus.

The two teams met Feb. 29 to open the season, with Montreal winning 2-1 on Max Urruti's goal in the 80th minute. It was Henry's first game as coach of the Impact.
