Sene lifts Revolution past Timbers 1-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Saer Sene scored his first MLS goal on

his first shot in the first minute of play, and the New England

Revolution beat the Portland Timbers 1-0 on Saturday.

Sene, a native of France playing in just his second match for

New England, converted a header 28 seconds into the game for the

eighth-fastest goal in MLS history. Chris Tierney set it up with

a cross from the left side.

It was the first goal of the season for the Revolution (1-2),

who were shut out in each of their first two games. It also

snapped an eight-match winless streak dating to last season.

Portland (1-1-1) had three good scoring chances during the first

half, but Diego Chara's shot in the 13th minute went wide left

and headers from Kris Boyd in the 25th and 31st minutes also

sailed wide left of New England goalkeeper Matt Reis.

Reis, in his 15th MLS season, earned his 65th shutout and became

just the sixth MLS goalie with 1,000 career saves.

New England has won six straight home openers.

Also Saturday, Canada beat Brazil 2-1 in a women's soccer

friendly before the Timbers-Revolution match. Christine Sinclair

scored in the 12th and 78th minutes for Canada, while Gabriella

Demoiser converted a penalty kick in the 88th minute for Brazil.
