Patriot boys’ soccer lose GBL clash to Everett

A (2)-2

  Through its first five games of the season, the Revere High School boys’ soccer team has been involved in close games. That included a scoreless tie at Lynn Classical last week and a season-opening 1-1 deadlock against Medford.

  On Tuesday at the Revere High School Field, the Patriots suffered a 3-1 league setback to the neighboring Everett Crimson Tide. It was a contest where the first and second periods turned out to be very different.

  The Patriots came out strong in the opening 40 minutes. For the most part, they owned the territorial play and peppered the Everett goal.  Led by frontline players Kevin Flores, Kaue Vieira, David Tamayo, Joao Victor Cunha and Rogerio Filho, Revere had several good scoring opportunities but could only cash in on one of them.

  Filho notched Revere’s lone score with about 25 minutes remaining in period one. The Patriots had to be feeling good about their first-half effort. But that quickly faded over the final 40 minutes. The Tide came alive and switched the scenario, suddenly taking control of the territorial play and pressuring the Revere end.

  Two break-in goals in a span of about two minutes put Everett on top to stay at 2-1 with approximately 20 minutes left in the contest. The final goal came with just over 10 minutes to go and secured the victory for the visitors. The Patriots struggled to mount any serious offense in the second half.

  Entering Tuesday’s clash, Revere was coming off its first win of the season – a 2-0 shutout of Lynn English. The team’s other loss was a 2-1 decision against Somerville.  As of midweek, Revere stood at 1-2-2 on the season and is still very much in the hunt for a 2022 playoff berth under head coach Manuel Lopes.

  The Patriots hosted Chelsea on Thursday (after press deadline), and then travel to take on Malden on Saturday in a 12:30 p.m. start at McDonald Stadium.
