Youth teams post club best 5-1-0 record at Winter Showcase

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution Under-18 and Under-16 teams recently returned from the U.S. Soccer Development Academy’s Winter Showcase. Combined, the teams went 5-1-0 – the Revolution’s best tournament performance in its five-year history – against Crew Soccer Academy (Ohio), Chivas USA (Calif.) and PA Classics (Pa.).

“It was a good weekend for the club. I thought that both teams gave a great account of themselves and put together some very good stretches of soccer against three very good teams,” said Director of Youth Development Bryan Scales.

“Our results were certainly favorable, but ultimately I felt that the quality of the soccer, the mentality of the players and the chemistry within the two teams was excellent. The guys worked very hard. We’ll look forward to the break over the holidays and then get back together in January to start preparing for the second phase of the season.”

Under-18s Winter Showcase summary

The Under-18s wrapped up their three-game schedule with an unblemished 3-0-0 record. The team earned a pair of 2-1 victories against the Columbus Crew (Nov. 30) and Chivas USA (Dec. 1), before posting a 1-0 win against PA Classics (Dec. 3) in their final match. Dominik Machado (Attleboro, Mass.) scored one goal – a game-winner – and recorded three assists during the Showcase.
