BOSTON (CBS) – Last night in Houston, the New England Revolution erased a 1-0 halftime deficit and earned a 2-1 win over the Dynamo.

The star of the game for the Revs was Lee Nguyen, who followed his game-tying goal in the 65th minute with the game winner in the 87th. Nguyen, the team’s leading scorer, is now tied for fourth in MLS with 17 goals and is making a strong case to be MLS’ Most Valuable Player.
