A spot in the 2022 MLS NEXT Cup Under-19 Final will be on the line Friday morning when the New England Revolution U-19s take on the FC Dallas U-19s at the Toyota Soccer Center in Frisco, Texas. Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. ET, with live coverage streaming on both Twitch and YouTube.
The Revolution Under-19s reached this stage with a thrilling, come-from-behind 3-2 win over Players Development Academy (New Jersey) on Wednesday afternoon. Trailing 2-1 at halftime despite a stunning opening goal from Isaie Louis (2005 - Everett, Mass.), the Revs battled back after the break, led by halftime substitute Malcolm Fry (2005 - Groton, Mass.). Fry first burned past his defender to provide the assist on Triton Beauvois' (2003 - Malden, Mass.) equalizer, before again shifting past a sliding opponent to score the winner just 10 minutes later.
New England opened the competition with a 4-1 win over IMG Academy in the Round of 32 - with two goals apiece from Fry and Jack Panayotou (2004 - Cambridge, Mass.) - before claiming a 2-1 win over Real Colorado in the Round of 16 behind strikes from Panayotou and Olger Escobar (2006 - Lynn, Mass.).
The 2022 MLS NEXT Cup Under-19 Final is set for Sunday, July 3, at 6 p.m. ET.
