TORONTO – New England Revolution II (4-3-1; 14 pts.) completed a 3-2 comeback win over Toronto FC II (1-5-1; 4 pts.) on Sunday night at York Lions Stadium. Homegrown midfielder Damian Rivera led the offense for New England notching his second brace of the season late in the second half.

New England dominated possession throughout the match and reaped the rewards late in the second half as Rivera netted his third career brace with Revolution II. The Homegrown midfielder tied the game up after defender Tiago Suarez sent the ball to the center of the field where Weverton headed it down for Brandonn Bueno to play over to Rivera who sent a right footed shot into the bottom left corner of the net.

One minute later, defender Pierre Cayet sailed the ball down the left side of the field where Rivera was waiting to send another right footed shot in this time to the center of the goal to tally his team-leading fifth goal of the season and close out the fourth victory of the year for New England.
