Recap | Revs II's five-game unbeaten run snapped vs. South Georgia Tormenta FC

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution II (5-6-3, 18 pts.) fell on Wednesday night at South Georgia Tormenta FC, 4-0, in the penultimate game of the 2020 regular season. Academy defender Colby Quinones surpassed 1,000 minutes played on the season with his 90-minute effort on the night, becoming the first active youth player to reach the milestone in his 13th appearance of the year.

“I’m really excited to hit the 1,000-minute mark,” said Quinones. “It’s definitely one of my better personal achievements. I’ve had a lot of help on the way to get to this point and hopefully it’s the first of many 1,000 minutes.”

Tormenta raced out to a 3-0 lead with three goals in a 16-minute stretch from Nil Vinyals, Joshua Phelps, and Jad Arslan. Devyn Jambga added a fourth late in the second half for the hosts.

“[Tormenta FC] had a good game plan,” said Revolution II Head Coach Clint Peay. “They sat back and absorbed pressure. They were compact which made it hard for us to break them down and they set themselves up well for the counter attack.”

Revolution II received another strong performance from Tiago Mendonca in midfield, leading the team with three shots on the night including one on target. Mendonca had five recoveries and three tackles defensively as well.

New England will stay on the road for the final game of its inaugural campaign on Saturday night with a visit to face Forward Madison FC. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN+ in the United States.
