Sene wins MLS Goal of the Week honors

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution continues to rack up the hardware.

One week after Matt Reis earned the MLS Save of the Week, forward Saer Sene was awarded the MLS Goal of the Week.

Senes knuckling net-bender edged out Seattle's Osvaldo Alonso. Sene captured 27 percent of fan voting, narrowly holding off Alonso, who garnered 26 percent.

Sene's goal came in the 12th minute of Sunday's 2-1 loss at Philadelphia. After taking a pass from Kelyn Rowe, Sene launched his left-footed twister from 28 yards out and beat Union keeper Zac MacMath under the crossbar.

Check out Sene's award-winning goal here.

Senes goal of the week nod is his first and the Revolutions first of the 2012 season. Its also the clubs first weekly goal honor since Week 2 of the 2010 season when former Rev Kenny Mansally won for his strike against D.C. United on April 3.

Drew Moor, Sebastian Giovinco score, Toronto FC beats Revolution, 2-0

TORONTO - Drew Moor scored early and Sebastian Giovinco struck late and Toronto FC overcame a tight schedule turnaround to beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Friday night.

Toronto was coming off a 1-1 tie Wednesday night in Montreal in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final. The Revs had been off since a 2-1 home loss to Chicago on Saturday.

Moor's 11th-minute goal looked to be enough, with Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono preserving the win with a save on Teal Bunbury's header in the 88th minute. But Giovinco added an insurance goal deep into stoppage time, bringing down a high ball before beating a defender and banging a left-footed shot home for his 50th goal in MLS regular-season and playoff action.

MLS leading Toronto (10-2-5) has won seven straight at home. New England (5-7-5) is 0-6-3 on the road.

Nikolic, Solignac score in Fire's 2-1 win over Revolution

Nemanja Nikolic and Luis Solignac scored and the Chicago Fire handed the New England Revolution their first home loss of the season, 2-1 on Saturday night.

Nikolic scored his MLS-leading 13th goal in the 18th minute, beating an offside trap and, after having his initial shot blocked by goalie Cody Cropper, firing in the rebound.

Three quick passes found Solignac in front of the goal as he finished from close range in the 61st for his fourth goal.

New England scored in the 70th when Juan Agudelo kept the ball alive with a header off a cross with Antonio Mlinar Delamea then heading in the ball for his first MLS goal.

New England, which outshot Chicago 24-8, spent the remaining minutes on the attack but failed to get the equalizer despite several frantic moments in front of Chicago's net.

New England (5-6-5) had five wins and two draws at home before the loss. Chicago (9-3-4) is unbeaten in eight matches.
