Sene, a 25-year old Frenchman in his first MLS season, opened the scoring with a penalty kick in the 26th minute and made it 2-1 in the 57th minute with his sixth goal of the season.

New England is 4-6-1 overall and 2-1-1 in its last four.

Sene ended Houston's shutout streak at 289 minutes with his penalty kick, a left-footed drive to the lower right corner of the net past goalkeeper Tally Hall.

Bruin tied it in the 32nd minute, and Sene made it 2-1 on a run down the left flank.

Revolution acquire defender Benjamin Angoua

The New England Revolution have acquired defender Benjamin Angoua on loan from EA Guingamp for the 2017 MLS season with the option to transfer permanently following the season. Angoua will be added to the Revolution roster upon the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and P-1 Visa.
 
“With Benjamin’s experience, adding him to the Revolution was an important step for our club this offseason,” Revolution GM Michael Burns said. “We began this offseason with the goal of bringing in veteran players who are ready to contribute right away, so we are very pleased to have Benjamin with us as we head to preseason training in Arizona.”
 
Angoua, 30, has made a combined 309 appearances across all competitions in France, Hungary, and the Ivory Coast, recording five goals and two assists from the backline. He joins the Revolution after more than two seasons with EA Guingamp (2014-17) and previously played for FC Valenciennes (2010-14), both in France’s top-flight Ligue 1. An experienced defender, Angoua has registered 152 appearances, including 138 starts, in Ligue 1 competition since 2010.
 
The 6-foot, 160-pound Ivorian international also played with Budapest Honvéd (2006-10) in Hungary’s OTP Bank Liga, and Africa Sports (2004-06) in the Ivory Coast Ligue 1. Angoua has additional experience competing in the UEFA Europa League with both Guingamp and Budapest Honvéd.
 
At the international level, the Anyama native has recorded 17 caps and registered one goal for the Ivory Coast national team.
