FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – On Saturday, April 6, the New England Revolution’s youth teams swept Met Oval on the road in Maspeth, N.Y. Overall, the teams went 3-0-0 against Met Oval as the Under-18s earned a 5-2 victory, while the Under-16s and Under-14s shut out their opponents, 4-0 and 1-0, respectively.


The Under-18s earned a 5-2 victory against Met Oval on Saturday, extending their unbeaten streak to 12 games. Met Oval’s Jonathan Zvi scored in just the second minute of play, but the advantage did not last long. Coupar Lipp (Shrewsbury, Mass.) received a pass from Dominik Machado (Attleboro, Mass.) and curled his left-footed shot past the goalkeeper to equalize in the fourth minute. Gabe Gissie (Worcester, Mass.) doubled the Revs’ lead in the 21st minute, after Willis Griffith’s (Amherst, N.H.) through ball sprung him into a one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Alejandro Newsom then leveled the score for Met Oval in the 58th minute, making it 2-2. Breaking the deadlock, Leandro Alves (Pawtucket, R.I.) and Machado each scored unassisted goals in the 78th and 80th minutes, respectively. In the 84th minute, Quenton Swift (Enfield, Conn.) combined with Gissie to score the game’s final goal. Now 10-2-2 (32 pts.), the U18s are ranked second in the Northeast Division of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy’s East Conference with 2.29 points per game.


The Under-16s shut out Met Oval, 4-0, on Saturday, extending their unbeaten streak to six games. Scoreless for the much of the first half, the Revs took the lead in the 35th minute after Declan McCabe (Weston, Mass.) was fouled in the box and converted his penalty kick. McCabe then registered an assist on Danny Apajee’s (Cranston, R.I.) goal a minute later. Apajee scored his second goal in the 43rd minute – assisted by Amadu Kunateh (Lynn, Mass.) – to give New England a 3-0 advantage going into halftime. Trevor Davock (Medway, Mass.) – also assisted by Kunateh – netted the Revs’ fourth goal in the 68th minute to push the score to 4-0. Goalkeeper Bruce Johnson (Brewster, Mass.) made five saves en route to the shutout. With their 8-2-4 (28 pts.) record, the U16s are currently fourth in the Northeast Division of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy’s East Conference with 2.00 points per game.

After a scoreless first half, Aaron James (Amherst, Mass.) scored the game-winner in the 61st minute, assisted by Raffi Barsamian (Sherborn, Mass.). The U14s are currently riding a four-game unbeaten streak and have posted three consecutive shutouts in that span. With 2.40 points per game, the Revs currently sit in third place in U.S. Club Soccer’s 20-team Northeast Pre-Academy League.
