MLS: Supporters’ Shield Champions Revs extend series with dramatic draw, poor Austin win

New England Revolution made a breathtaking comeback at the last second and, thanks to two-goal hero Adam Buksa, drew an exciting 2-2 draw against Orlando City in the MLS.

Supporters’ Shield winners Revolution were 2-2 down, nine minutes left before Polish international Buksa saved an unlikely point for the soaring team on Sunday.

Buksa scored in the 81st minute and then scored in the third minute of stoppage time to save a dramatic tie and extend the Revs’ undefeated run to nine games.

Orlando had kept control thanks to former Manchester United stars Nani and Daryl Pike’s rapid fire goals, who made it 2-0 five minutes into the second half.

With the point New England closed (70 to 32 games) – after it thanks to the 10 record of 72 set by Los Angeles FC in 2019.

Elsewhere, the humble Austin Houston defeated Dynamo 2-1 thanks to a two-goal first half.

After Marco Maric’s own goal in the seventh minute, Sebastian Driussi gave Austin a 2-0 lead in the fourth minute of stoppage time in the first half.

Another own goal, this time in favor of Dynamo after Julio Cascantes bad luck, made things interesting in stoppage time.

Last season marked the first time in Houston’s 15 MLS campaigns they finished less than one point per game on average (0.91-21 points in 23 games). With 30 points in 32 rounds this season, Dynamo are on the right track for the second year in a row.
