BOSTON -- The New England Revolution played their first league home game in a month, on Saturday night, and defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0, thanks to goals from Saer Sene and Dimitry Imbongo, and a pair of assists from Lee Nguyen.

Nguyen gave Sene a simple pass in the middle of the pitch in the 13th minute, and Sene turned and quickly took a shot with his left foot from 10 yards outside of the box. The deep shot ended up in the top-right corner of the net, with San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch unable to get a piece of it as he dove to his left.

New England took the 1-0 lead into the second half, where Imbongo made it 2-0 in the 78th minute, as he put home a sliding shot out front. The pass came from Nguyen, who took a perfect lead pass down the right side from Kelyn Rowe.

That would be all the Revs needed on this night, improving their record to 6-5-6 on the season.
