The New England Revolution played their final preseason game on Saturday when they bested KR Reykjavik 2-1.

The Revs grabbed a goal early on as Cristian Penilla was awarded a penalty 10th minute. The Ecuadorian won his 1v1 battle, forcing a foul from the Reykjavik defender. Penilla had a brief discussion with Carles Gil before ultimately beating the keeper from the spot.

Reykjavik found an equalizer in the 70th minute when Matt Turner failed to punch away a cross. The ball found its way to an attacker in the box, who had no issue putting it away.

DeJuan Jones, who entered for Penilla, played a big role in the Revolution’s game-winner that was scored in the 84th minute. The attacker settled a ball lobbed in by Zach Herivaux before sending it across the goalmouth. The chance hit the post but Luis Caciedo was there to put it home.

The Revs will now turn their attention to FC Dallas, who they play in their season opener on Saturday.
