MLS Game Summary - Colorado at New England



(Wednesday, May 2, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New England 2, Colorado 1

Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - Saer Sene scored once and added an assist to help the New England Revolution snap a three-game losing skid with a 2-1 defeat of the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday.

The French striker helped the Revs overturn Jaime Castrillon's 21st-minute goal, equalizing in the 27th minute before setting up Fernando Cardenas for the game-winner just before the close of the first half.

Colorado jumped out to a first-half lead when Martin Rivero's corner kick was met by a powerful header from Castrillon. The Colombian made a darting run to the near post, beat his mark and nodded the delivery past Matt Reis for his second goal of the season.

The lead was short-lived as Sene leveled the score just six minutes later. Clyde Simms sent a long cross to the back post where Stephen McCarthy rose above his defender to head the ball back across goal. Sene was unmarked and made the Rapids pay, firing a shot through traffic and into the back of the net.

Sene turned provider for New England before the close of the first half, slipping a ball to the outside of the box for Cardenas to chip a lofty shot over the head of Matt Pickens.

That goal turned out to be all New England would need to claim its first win in over a month as a tame second half saw the home side collect all three points.

New England (3-5-0) improves to nine points on the season and climbs from ninth to fourth in the Eastern Conference. A big test looms for the Revs on Saturday as they head to Rio Tinto Stadium to face Real Salt Lake.

Colorado (4-5-0) has lost four of its last five league contests, but returns home for a match against Western Conference foes FC Dallas on Sunday at Dick's Sporting Goods Park where the Rapids will look to get back to winning ways.
