POSTGAME NOTES: Revolution II Fall to New York Red Bulls II, 1-0


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution II (3-2-0; 9 pts.) fell to New York Red Bulls II (2-1-2; 6 pts.), 1-0, at Gillette Stadium on Friday night. Forward Jordan Adebayo-Smith led the team with four shots and two on target as goalkeeper Max Weinstein made three saves in the match.

“I thought the team played pretty well for the most part, created a lot of good chances that I think we were a little unlucky not to get one tonight," Head Coach Clint Peay said of his team's effort. "Obviously, the PK was a big miss for us, but there's a lot of positives in terms of goal creation and moving the ball and building out, so very proud of the group. I thought overall, defensively, they were pretty sound. We just got a little sloppy towards the end of the game. I think tired legs and minds start to make bad decisions and that's what led to us I think losing a little bit of control of the game.”               

The two sides were scoreless through 45 minutes as New England recorded five shots on target. Midfielder Brandonn Bueno drew a foul in the box in the 19th minute, but his penalty kick opportunity was saved by New York’s AJ Marcucci.

Revolution Academy forward Olger Escobar became the 27th Academy player to make his professional debut with New England’s second team, entering the match in the 71st minute for Bueno.

“You know, it's a huge emotion and a big moment for me. I've been waiting for this for a very long time," Escobar said of making his debut. "And I woke up today, I was like, ‘Well, today's the day. I think I can make my debut.’ Last night it was really hard to sleep, but I don’t know. I got through it, and then woke up saying that ‘Oh, it's here.’ And, you know, it's a big moment for me, my parents, everyone that loves me.”

New York drew a foul in the box in the 75th minute as Oladayo Thomas tallied on the penalty kick to break the tie. New England added on their sixth shot on target in the 85th minute, but would fall in the match, 1-0. Defender Pierre Cayet received a second yellow card in the 92nd minute. Per the MLS NEXT Pro red card suspension rule, Cayet will now miss Revolution II’s next match vs. New York Red Bulls II on June 4.

New England returns to action on Sunday, April 30, hosting FC Cincinnati 2 at Gillette Stadium. The 5 p.m. match will stream live on
