Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - A late own goal from Bobby Shuttleworth was the difference at Gillette Stadium on Saturday as the Houston Dynamo came away with a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution.

Adam Moffat and Saer Sene exchanged goals in the span of six minutes, but it was Shuttleworth's misfortune that cost the Revs a share of the spoils as New England (6-6-6) drops to .500 on the season.

Houston (8-6-5) wins its second straight league match to improve to 29 points on the season.

After a scoreless opening period, Houston needed just four minutes to get in front after the restart as Moffat buried a blast from 25 yards out.

It took New England just six minutes to draw level as a parried cross fell right to Sene, who turned the loose ball into the back of the net from close range.

The two sides remained tied until the 79th minute when a bit of fortune helped the Dynamo take the lead once more. Moffat unleashed another shot from distance that struck the post and came back into play, but the ball deflected off of Shuttleworth and ended up in the back of the net.

New England was left no way back after Dimitry Imbongo was issued a straight red card three minutes later for taking a swipe at Bobby Boswell.
