HALFTIME: NE Revs 1, SJ Quakes 0 - Sene on Target in 1st

USA TODAY Sports

Saer Sene has put the New England Revolution in front of the visiting San Jose Earthquakes with a long range effort 13th minutes into the game.

The New England Revolution took a 1-0 halftime lead against the visiting San Jose Earthquakes thanks to a 13th minute goal by Saer Sene. It was a long shot by Sene that was initially saved by Quakes keeper Jon Busch and the rebound fell to the Revs, and a short pass from Lee Nguyen gave Sene enough space to take aim again from long range, this time finding the side netting.

That followed a long stretch in which the Revs had several chances, including an excellent chance by rookie defender Andrew Farrell, who's darting run eventually led to a spectacular toe save by Busch to deny the youngster his first MLS goal. Chad Barrett has been especially lively, with several dangerous moments that almost led to goals. Kelyn Rowe also sent a few chances just off target as the Revs peppered the Quakes defense with crosses and shots.

The Revs will be disappointed to not be up by another goal with the chances (6-0 advantage in shots on goal so far) they've generated so far in the match, but it was a very solid first half by the Revs with a lot of good physical play. The Revs defense hasn't given Bobby Shuttleworth all that much to do, with San Jose only registering one shot off target.

Steven McCarthy briefly left the game with an injury but came back on to the field and should continue in the game.
