FOXBORO -- After jumping out to an early 1-0 lead, the New England Revolution allowed two first-half goals from Seattle's Eddie Johnson, and it looked as if the Sounders were going to hold on.

That was until Diego Fagundez put home a header in the 94th minute to tie the game at 2-2 and get the Revs a point in a 2-2 draw on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium.

New England got a 94th-minute goal last weekend to force a 2-2 draw in Toronto, and the Revolution were able to do it once again.

Saer Sene had his fair share of missed opportunities on Saturday night, but he also had New England's only goal. Sene finished a Blake Brettschneider pass out front in the 12th minute for an easy finish, putting the Revs up 1-0.

But Johnson tied the game in the 23rd minute on a header from the right post, and he then gave Seattle a 2-1 lead in the 36th minute.

Fagundez helped the Revs salvage a point after receiving a nice aerial pass from Fernando Cardenas in the final seconds of stoppage time.
