FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution II (8-5-3; 30 pts.) battled Toronto FC II (3-8-4; 15 pts.), to a 1-1 draw on Friday night at Gillette Stadium, claiming the extra point with a 4-2 shootout win. Revolution goalkeeper Jacob Jackson made five saves as forward Jordan Adebayo-Smith scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season in the match.

Adebayo-Smith opened the scoring in the 37th minute after his high press caused a turnover in Toronto’s defense. The Englishman led New England with three shots and three on target. Toronto tied the game with Julian Altobelli’s tally in the 61st minute.

After Revolution II’s three subs entered the match in the second half, goalkeeper Nico Campuzano was called upon in the 83rd minute as an emergency forward for Weverton. The second-year pro closed out the remaining seven minutes of the match in a field position and narrowly missed a scoring opportunity off a corner kick in stoppage time. With the score even at one, the two sides headed to the penalty kick shootout.

New England’s Marcos Dias, Jacob Akanyirige, Ben Awashie, and Nakye Greenidge-Duncan all buried their opportunities while Jackson recorded two saves in the shootout, marking his second shootout win of the season and securing the additional point for Revolution II.
