FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution expected a hard fought match against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. They had split the first two games this season, each team winning on the road, and their third battle wouldn't be any different.
The Revolution and Dynamo finished in a 1-1 tie in a game that included 16 fouls and possessions split nearly 50-50.
Saer Sene scored in the 65th minute assisted from Lee Nguyen. Later in the second half, Will Bruin scored from Oscar Boniek García in the 75th minute to even up the game.
“It’s going to be a battle,” Andrew Farrell said leading up to the match. “We’re going to have to kind of fight them first then play the soccer second. It’s going to be a fun one. It’s kind of like a playoff atmosphere every weekend now.”
Matt Reis, who recorded two saves, made his 250th career appearance with the Revolution. He is only the second player in Revs history to reach that milestone. Shalrie Joseph previously made 261 appearances.
The Revs will take on the Red Bulls next Saturday night in New York.
