The New England Revolution snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday. Forward Saer Sene was the star of the game, scoring a goal and assisting on Fernando Cardenas' goal.
Jaime Castrillon gave the Rapids an early lead when he was able to get his head on the end of a Martin Rivero corner kick in the 21st minute. It was Castrillon's second goal of the season and gave Rivero his first career MLS assist.
The Revolution struck back quickly, though. Sene equalized in the 27th minute, bagging his third goal of the season on a well-taken volley. The goal was made possible because Stephen McCarthy won a header near the endline and sent it back to Sene about 10 yards out.
Cardenas gave the Revolution their first lead when he deftly chipped Rapids goalkeeper Matt Pickens from the edge of the penalty area in the 39th minute. Sene set up the goal with a nicely weighted pass.
That proved to be plenty as Matt Reis made six saves to pick up the win.
The Rapids continued their roller-coaster season, losing to one of the league's worst teams a few days after beating Chivas USA 4-0.
