With New England hosting its second home game on Saturday afternoon, Rowe played a starring role in the Revs’ first victory of the season, notching both goals in the club’s 2-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes. The two tallies marked Rowe’s second career multiple-goal game and were the first goals scored by the Revs this season.
Rowe got on the score sheet in the 21st minute when midfielder Lee Nguyen received the ball in the Earthquakes’ half and found Rowe at the top of the box. Rowe’s right-footed shot deflected off of San Jose defender Shaun Francis and swerved past goalkeeper David Bingham, breaking a New England scoreless streak of 346 minutes in league play.
The New England Revolution return to action this Saturday on the road against the Colorado Rapids at 7:00 p.m. ET at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (MLS LIVE).
