FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – New England Revolution II (6-2-2, 21 pts.) fell to Inter Miami CF II (4-5-1, 13 pts.), 2-0, at DRV PNK Stadium on Saturday night. Tonight’s lineup featured seven first team players staying sharp during the international break with Esmir Bajraktarevic, Dylan Borerro, Noel Buck, Jacob Jackson, Ben Reveno, Damian Rivera, and Ryan Spaulding all featuring in the starting lineup.

Jackson, who had kept five straight clean sheets entering the match, made five of his 10 saves in the first half. However, Miami’s Shaan Hundal broke through in the 38th minute to send New England into halftime down by one goal. Miami extended their lead in the 56th minute with a goal from Tyler Bagley.

“I didn't think we had the proper attitude to start the game, and we got punished for it," Head Coach Clint Peay said postgame. "We didn't show up to play. We were reactionary in so many ways, on both sides of the ball and not the aggressor, so we got punished for it, but I thought the second half was better. There was more of a hunger and a desire to actually play the game in a positive way and take the initiative. And I thought that some of the changes that we made gave us a boost.”

New England had four shots on target in the match, with forward Marcos Dias and defender Pierre Cayet each recording opportunities with headed shots that were blocked. Revolution II sees its three-game winning streak snapped with the loss, only the second of the season through 10 games of the MLS NEXT Pro campaign.

“We played a game below what we are used to, but there is no despair," Dias stated. "This team is very good and we will do our best in the next game to win. We will train hard during the week, listen to what the coach has to say, analyze the opponent and give our best to the game.”

New England returns to action on Saturday, June 11 as Revolution II returns home to face Orlando City B at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 8:00 p.m. ET on MLSNEXTPro.com.
