FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution Academy resumed its 2021 MLS NEXT Fall season with all four teams travelling to Epping, N.H. for matches at Seacoast United on Sunday, Oct. 3. New England went unbeaten on the weekend as the Under-19s, Under-17s, and Under-14s all claimed victories, with the latter moving to 7-0-0 on the season on the back of the 6-0 win. The Under-15s earned a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

Revolution II claimed its third straight victory with a second consecutive clean sheet last Friday night, notching a 1-0 win over Forward Madison FC at Gillette Stadium.
