Dynamo avoid defeat to Revolution on late goal from Camargo

Luiz Camargo scored his first career MLS goal for the Houston Dynamo and Saturday, and it could not have come at a better time.

Camargo buried an 87th-minute equalizer off a left-footed volley to give the Dynamo a 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium. The near-post finish negated Saer Sene's second goal of the game, and left the Revolution with their latest bit of heartbreak this season.

Sene opened the scoring in the Eastern Conference bout with his fifth goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 26th minute, but Will Bruin pulled Houston level with a headed goal off a free kick from Brad Davis six minutes later.

New England's French forward then bagged his brace in the second half after stripping Geoff Cameron of the ball and racing in goal. Camargo then rescued the Dynamo from defeat when he got on the end of a floated Brian Ching pass and hit a shot past Matt Reis.

The result improved the Dynamo to 4-3-3 while it dropped the Revolution to 4-7.

Here are the match highlights:
