HOUSTON — Daigo Kobayashi scored on a header in the final seconds of second-half stoppage time, as the New England Revolution tied the Houston Dynamo 3-3 on Sunday in an MLS season opener.
Diego Fagundez scored the opening goal in the third minute and had two second-half assists for the Revs, who entered having won three consecutive games against the Dynamo.
Cristian Maidana, Andrew Wenger and Giles Barnes scored for Houston.
Maidana scored just before the break to tie it. Wenger put the Dynamo up 2-1 with his goal in the 50th minute, but Charlie Davies scored two minutes later for the Revs to tie things up again.
Barnes, the Dynamo’s captain, put Houston up 3-2 when he fired his shot from just outside the 18-yard box and into the back of the net, with goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth unable to get a hand on it.
Fagundez crossed the ball to Kobayashi to end it.
