FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – On most nights, New England forward Saër Sène would have relished the pair of goals he scored in the Revolution's 2-2 draw with Houston.
Saturday night didn't quite fall into that category, though. Luiz Camargo's 87th minute equalizer wiped away a potential victory and left Sène ruing the Revs' inability to secure all three points on the occasion.
HIGHLIGHTS: NE 2, HOU 2
“I scored two goals tonight, but I am sad,” Sène told MLSsoccer.com. “I'm disappointed because we took only one point from this game. We must take three points.”
The former Bayern Munich striker did all he could to make sure of the final result. He converted a penalty kick that he won himself in the first half and then lashed home a goal at the near post in the second half after dispossessing Houston defender Geoff Cameron at midfield.
Those goals might have held up on another night, but the Revs were pegged back by a Will Bruin header in the first half and the late Camargo finish to condemn them to a share of the spoils.
As the Revs prepare to push onwards ahead of Saturday's trip to D.C. United, Heaps said he hopes his in-form French striker can contribute even more to the cause next weekend at RFK Stadium.
“Saër had a great second goal and a penalty kick,” Heaps said. “I thought Saër was really good on that side of it, but we still need him to evolve and get better at holding the ball for us. I think, in the first half, there were a few key giveaways that we were defending on. Other than that, I think he's really coming into his own and I like the way he's competing.”
