Revolution Youth Academy Update: March 8

After last weekend’s postponed games because of weather, the New England Revolution Under-16 and Under-18 youth teams took to the road again this past weekend and came away with three victories in four matches. The U18s swept their games against Met Oval, 4-3, and BW Gottschee, 2-1. The U16s beat Met Oval, 4-1, on Saturday, but were shut out by BW Gotschee, 2-0, on Sunday.

The U16s jumped out to a 3-1 halftime lead and never looked back, beating Met Oval 4-1 on Saturday afternoon in Maspeth, N.Y. Devin Devoy (North Attleboro, Mass) tallied on an assist from Christian Sady (North Andover, Mass.) in the 15th minute. Diego Fagundez (Leominster, Mass.) scored consecutive goals for the Revs, the first with help from Felix DeBona (Everett, Mass.). DeBona then put the game out of reach in the 50th minute when he scored a goal off a pass from Dominik Machado (Attleboro, Mass.). Fagundez’s fantastic performance was overshadowed, however, when he fractured his arm in the second half and had to be taken out of the game.

The U18s followed with an exciting start to their match against Met Oval. The teams scored five goals in the first 15 minutes and the Revs eventually prevailed with a 4-3 victory over Met Oval. The game was tied until the 83rd minute when Dylan Hawkins (Easton, Mass.) headed in a Josh Vlasich (East Kingston, N.H.) offering for the game-winner. Homero Morais (Somerville, Mass.) scored twice for the Revs, first on a header from Gustavo Santos (Framingham, Mass.) and a brilliant strike from 20 yards out on his second goal in the eighth minute. Santos also assisted one minute later on a goal by Michael Rincon (Malden, Mass.).

Sunday the Revs’ youth squads traveled to Brooklyn, N.Y., to take on BW Gottschee at a breezy Aviator Sports Field near the water. The U16s could not convert on scoring opportunities and dropped a 2-0 decision. The loss drops the Under-16s to 2-2-0 on the young season.

The U18s had better luck in the afternoon, coming away with a 2-1 victory against BW Gottschee. Jonni Ventura (Westminster, Mass.) netted what proved to be the game-winner in the 33rd minute on a pass from Morais. Ventura also assisted on a tally to Vlaisch in the 29th minute. The back line combination of Kyle Gordon (Uxbridge, Mass.) and Sawyer Kisken (Fairbanks, Alaska) played well in the victory. The win improves the U18s’ record to 3-1-0.

The Revolution’s Under-16 and Under-18 youth teams’ next matches come Saturday, March 13, and Sunday, March 14, with home matches at Durfee High School in Fall River, Mass., with rematches against SC Premier (Saturday) and Oakwood SC (Sunday). These will be the first home games for the youth teams this season.
