FOXBOROUGH, MA – Blake Brettschneider and Branko Boskovic each factored in three of D.C. United reserve’s goals in the visitors’ 4-1 victory over the New England Revolution reserves on Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Major League Soccer’s reserve league.
The Revs struck early, with Ilija Stolica – assisted by Chris Tierney – scoring New England’s lone goal in the first minute of play.
United dominated for the remainder of the match, with Boskovic netting his first goal – assisted by Stephen King – in the 18th minute. Boskovic then assisted two of Brettschneider’s goals, first in the 34th minute and again in the 43rd. D.C.’s final goal came in the 69th minute, when Marcus Salandy-Defour emerged from a scramble in the box to finish Brettschneider’s service.
The two teams used a combined four players from their youth development programs. The Revs featured defender Mitch Taintor as a starter and midfielder Yannick Kabala and midfielder Dominik Machado as substitutes. D.C. United ran out Cody Albrecht as a second-half substitute.
