Chattanooga capitalized, netting the game-winning goal in the 80th minute. Saturday’s match saw the professional debut of U-19 Academy forward Braedon Smith, who entered the game as a second-half substitute in the 56th minute to become the 33rd Revolution Academy player to make his professional debut with New England’s second team.

Cranston, R.I. native Gevork Diarbian recorded a career-high eight shots in his sixth start of the year while Victor Souza logged the full 90 minutes in his 40th MLS NEXT Pro appearance since signing with the club last season. Academy standout Damario McIntosh continues to lead the club’s MLS NEXT products with 763 minutes played across ten appearances in 2024. A total of six current or former Revolution Academy players saw action on Saturday with Diarbian, McIntosh, Eric Klein, Malcolm Fry, and Max Weinstein all earning starts with Smith appearing off the bench.
