New England Revolution 4, Greenville Triumph SC 1 | 2019 Preseason Recap

The New England Revolution went down early, but came back to post a commanding 4-1 victory over USL League One side Greenville Triumph SC on Thursday as part of preseason in Bradenton, Fla.

After conceding in the 12th minute, Diego Fagundez found a quick equalizer, with a blast against the grain from the edge of the 18-yard box in the 16th minute.

The final three goals came in the second half, as an unidentified trialist put New England in the lead off a set piece, before Cristian Penilla and Brian Wright padded the advantage.

Greenville had a penalty at the death, but Revolution goalkeeper Cody Cropper blocked the attempt.
