“Right now, we are still undefeated,” Revolution II defender Pierre Cayet stated. “I think that’s a great point. I think our first clean sheet was a big thing. I think we want to keep improving, being able to score, and finish the chances that we have because we like to possess the ball, but it’s important for us as well to finish our chances and get three points every game, so I think this week we’re going to work a lot on finishing and be able to keep that clean sheet so that we can win more games.”

They’re collective in how they defend, and they are a team that on any given day can make it difficult for you so it’s going to be a challenging game for us, and we expect to play 90 minutes of competitive soccer.”
