New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner collected his first professional win on Saturday night, helping the Richmond Kickers (USL) to a 1-0 win over Toronto FC II.

Turner was loaned to the Kickers after the club's usual starter Ryan Taylor suffered a season-ending injury against the Charlotte Independence. The Kickers' back-up is 18-year-old Richmond United Academy player Sawyer Gaffney.

Turner started on Saturday and collected five save en route to earning a clean sheet. One of his biggest stops occurred when he denied forward Sal Bernal's bid from inside the box.

On the other side of the field, Brian Ownby recorded a 9th-minute tally to give the home side a lead that they would never relinquish. Jason Yeisley was credited with the assist. The Kickers now improve to 3-2-1 on the season.

For Toronto, former Revolution Academy player Mitchell Taintor played 90 minutes at center back. Taintor was selected by Toronto FC in the 2016 SuperDraft before ultimately signing with TFC II.
