New England Revolution II (2-0-2, 9 pts.) notched a draw with Orlando City B (1-2-0, 3 pts.) at Exploria Stadium, falling in the shootout 4-3 on Sunday night. goalkeeper Jacob Jackson earned the first clean sheet of his career in his fourth start, stopping the lone shot he faced.
“Yeah, I think he’s been big in some games where he’s had to come up and make some saves,” Head Coach Clint Peay stated postgame. “Obviously tonight, nothing other than sort of routine saves and not very many, so he was steady , solid, and he was good for us.”
Revolution II Head Coach Clint Peay made three changes to his lineup with Pierre Cayet, Jack Panayotouand Meny Silva in for Colby Quinones, Esmir Bajraktarevicand Damian Rivera.
Revolution II outshot Orlando City B 20-3 and led 7-2 on shots in the first half, with Jake Rozhansky creating multiple dangerous chances. Panayotou and Lima continued their strong play in the midfield and each had opportunities to break the deadlock just before halftime. New England finished the match with six shots on target to Orlando’s one.
Christmas Buck, Ben Revenoand Hikaru Fujiwara all scored in the shootout, but New England would fall in the end, 4-3. New England’s one point on the night extends the team’s point streak to four games to begin the season.
“I thought the guys played a good game, were able to create some decent chances and really limit them to very little, possess most of the ball,” Peay stated. “And I thought overall again, good performance, just missing the final product and sometimes that happens and it’s unfortunate, but I was happy that we kept a clean sheet.”
New England returns to action on Sunday, May 1 as Revolution II hosts Inter Miami CF II at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 pm on MLNSNEXTPro.com.
