It’s safe to say the Revolution offense fired on all cylinders on Wednesday.

Lee Nguyen and Juan Agudelo each bagged a brace to steer the Revolution to a 6-2 rout of Sporting Kansas City during Matchday 3 of the Desert Diamond Cup tournament in Tucson, Ariz.

Nguyen scored in the 66th and 81st minutes while Juan Agudelo tallied in the 54th and 60th minutes. Diego Fagundez added to the second half scoring haul with a goal of his own in the 73rd minute. Daigo Kobayashi opened the account inside of two minutes. Kansas City countered with goals from Jimmy Medranda and Graham Zusi in the 21st and 88th minutes, respectively.

Designated player Xavier Kouassi got his second start of the winter while offseason signing Benjamin Angoua made his preseason debut in the second half.

With the win, the Revolution improve to 3-2-1 on the preseason, and captured their first victory of the tournament.

New England wraps up its preseason fixture list on Saturday against an opponent to be determined.
