Academy Update | Big win for U19s highlights weekend action vs. Boston Bolts

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution Academy continued its spring season last weekend as all five teams resumed their campaigns at Mount Ida College in Newton, Mass. The Under-19s, Under-17s, Under-15s, Under-14s, and Under-13s all faced FC Boston Bolts on Saturday, May 18.

Three Academy teams will return to action on Saturday, May 25 when the U-17s and U-15s will travel to Purchase, N.Y. to take on New York Soccer Club. Meanwhile, the U-19s will travel to Portland, Conn. to face Oakwood Soccer Club. With the U-19s’ 5-1 win over Boston Bolts, the team clinched a USSDA playoff spot for the third consecutive year. With two more wins this season, the team can clinch its second Northeast Division title in three years.

Beginning this Friday, Revolution Academy alum and Homegrown Player Justin Rennicks (South Hamilton, Mass.) will help lead the United States Under-20 Men’s National Team into the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland. Named to the roster by Head Coach Tab Ramos, Rennicks has been a regular member of the U-20 squad during this cycle, as the two-time UnitedHealthcare Academy Player of the Year scored four goals in eight appearances during the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship. The U.S. U-20s will begin play in Group D on Friday, May 24 vs. Ukraine (2:30 p.m. -- FS1), followed by matches against Nigeria on May 27 (2:30 p.m. -- FS1), and Qatar on May 30 (2:30 p.m. -- FS2).
