FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- 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.
