Revs snap losing streak, beat Rapids 2-1

FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution snapped a three-game losing skid on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium, securing a halftime lead and defeating the Colorado Rapids 2-1.
The Rapids got on the board first, in the 21st minute, when Jaime Castrillon headed a corner kick past Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis from the near post.
But New England quickly battled back, and saw goals from Saer Sene in the 28th minute, and Fernando Cardenas in the 39th minute.
Sene finished off a series of passes that began with a deep Clyde Simms cross-field lob pass from the right wing. Stephen McCarthy headed Simms' pass out front to Sene, who then kicked it in while falling to the ground to tie the game at 1-1.
Just over 10 minutes later, Cardenas lofted a shot with his left foot over the hand of leaping Rapids goalkeeper Matt Pickens, which ended up being the game-winner.
