FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tajon Buchanan scored his eighth goal of the season and the New England Revolution beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0 on Wednesday night to break the MLS record for points in a season with 73.

New England (22-4-7), the Supporters' Shield winner, broke the mark of 72 for a 34-match season set by Los Angeles FC in 2019 . The Revolution have one game left in the regular season, at home game against Inter Miami remaining Nov. 7.

New England coach Bruce Arena tied Sigi Schmid's MLS record with his 240th regular-season victory.

Buchanan settled a cross from Adam Buksa with his chest, took two touches to get away from a defender, and slotted a shot past William Yarbrough from a difficult angle in the 74th minute.

Colorado (15-7-10) clinched a playoff berth Saturday.
