New England Revolution News Release

BRONX, N.Y. - The New England Revolution (1-5-1; 4 pts.) fell to New York City FC (2-4-2; 8 pts.), 2-0, on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium. The Revolution dueled the hosts to a scoreless first half before conceding the winner in the 57th minute. New England goalkeeper Henrich Ravas registered four saves on the night, while forward Tomás Chancalay led the attack with a game-high four shots.

In the first half, Chancalay provided the best of New England's scoring opportunities, including a 27th-minute volley that was saved by New York City goalkeeper Matt Freese. The Argentine had another shot skim the crossbar seconds later. Soon after, Revolution captain Carles Gil tried his luck from outside the box with a left-footed shot in the 28th minute, also saved by Freese. Forward Giacomo Vrioni was also involved in the attack throughout the night, contributing two shots on target.

New York City forward Agustín Ojeda broke the deadlock in the 57th minute to open the scoring for the hosts. New England applied pressure late and created several chances to even the score, including a shot from defender Ryan Spaulding in the 78th minute that took a deflection and nearly trickled over the goal line.

The Revolution's best opportunity to equalize came on a header from Chancalay from Carles Gil's pinpoint cross, but the powerful attempt was denied by Freese. Forward Julián Fernández put the game out of reach in stoppage time with a strike into the top-left corner past a diving Ravas, sealing the 2-0 win for the hosts.

New England continues its road swing next Saturday, April 20, with a trip north of the border to face Toronto FC. The 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at BMO Field is available to watch on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV in English and Spanish.
