POSTGAME NOTES: Revolution II Secure First Win of the Season at Atlanta United 2, 3-2


KENNESAW, G.A. – New England Revolution II (1-0-0, 3 pts.) opened its 2023 MLS NEXT Pro season with a 3-2 win over Atlanta United 2 (0-1-0, 0 pts.) on Sunday night at Fifth Third Bank Stadium. Midfielder Jake Rozhansky caused an own goal off a cross and went on to score another tally later in the match, while 15-year-old Revolution Academy defender Peyton Miller logged the full 90 minutes. Miller became the youngest player in team history to make his professional debut with Revolution II.

“I was definitely excited stepping onto the field, and I was nervous, but those nerves went away as soon as the whistle blew," Miller said. "It was great to play in front of all those fans and get the victory.”

New England found the scoresheet first as Rozhansky sent a cross in following a corner kick and the ball deflected off Atlanta’s Aiden McFadden to give Revolution II a 1-0 lead at halftime.

“I thought the guys really worked hard. We were committed to how we wanted to play, sticking to our identity, and that was a good result for us," Head Coach Clint Peay stated. "I thought it was deserved, and just proud of the effort because it’s difficult coming down from the Northeast early in the season where there’s a little bit more heat and we asked a lot of the guys and I thought they fought through until the end.”

Rozhansky doubled New England’s lead in the 52nd minute, sailing the ball in from outside of the box to the top left corner of the net, securing the defensive midfielder’s first goal with Revolution II. Cayet added to the scoring in the 60th minute, heading home a corner to seal the game-winner and the first three points of the 2023 season.

“It was a great win. I think we could have solidified this game earlier at 3-0," Rozhansky said of the team's performance. "I think we should have kept it there, but it's lessons to learn from, and it's a good start this season, so we got to keep going.”

New England returns to action on Sunday, April 2 as Revolution II kicks off its home slate by hosting New York City FC II at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. with the match streaming live on
