New England Revolution 2, Colorado Rapids 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

Chris Tierney's free kick deflected in off the Colorado Rapids wall deep in second-half stoppage time to lift the New England Revolution to a 2-1 victory at Gillette Stadium Saturday afternoon. 
Tierney, who came on as a first-half replacement for an injured Gabriel Somi, scored from just outside of the 18-yard box as the Revs bounced back from a season-opening loss to the Philadelphia Union. 
Diego Fagundez scored the Revs' first goal of the season three minutes after halftime, striking low past Tim Howard from 13 yards.
Colorado had a golden chance to equalize six minutes later when Jack Price stepped to the penalty spot after Jalil Anibaba took down Jack MeBean in the box. But Matt Turner dove to his right to make the save and Price skied the rebound over the crossbar.
Yet just moments after coming off the substitute’s bench, Niki Jackson leveled for the Rapids in the 66th minute, beating Turner to a Johan Bomberg cross and heading in his first MLS goal.
