MONTREAL, Quebec – The New England Revolution Reserves (1-1-1, 4 pts.) earned a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Impact Reserves on Tuesday morning at the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex. Alec Purdie and Jeremiah White each scored goals as the Revolution squad defeated a lineup composed of Montreal’s regular starters.
The Revolution caught the Impact off guard in the game’s opening seconds when Alec Purdie slid one past goalkeeper Greg Sutton, beating him to his right.
In the 10th minute, the Impact tied it up when midfielder Collen Warner played a ball back from the goal line to midfielder Felipe waiting near the penalty spot. With one touch, Felipe set up his right foot and placed the ball into the bottom right corner.
The second half began in much the same way as the first, with a breakdown that led to a breakaway for Jeremiah White, who put one past Sutton as he charged out of the goal to challenge him in the 51st minute.
The Impact nearly got one back in the 60th minute when forward Andrew Wenger ran down a loose ball inside the box and played a ball cross crease to midfielder Sinisa Ubiparipovic, who one-timed a blast that was stopped by Bobby Shuttleworth.
With the win, the Revolution reserves moved to 1-1-1 (4 pts.) on the season, while the loss dropped the Montreal reserves to 2-2-1 (7 pts.). The Revs’ reserves return to action for the second of three games schedules in a 13-day span when they travel to face the Columbus Crew reserves on Sunday, June 10, at 10 a.m. at Crew Stadium in Columbus.
