New England Revolution II has been named the Team of Matchday 10 after securing consecutive victories against Columbus Crew 2 and Inter Miami II. These impressive wins have propelled Clint Peay's squad to second place in the Eastern Conference and extended their winning streak to a remarkable four games.

In their first match of Matchday 10, New England Revolution II put an end to Columbus Crew 2's four-game winning streak with a dominant 2-0 triumph. Jordan Adebayo-Smith and Ben Awashie led the way offensively by scoring both of their team’s goals. Notably, New England Revolution II’s defense deserves recognition as well, as they effectively shut down the previously red-hot Crew 2, allowing them only three shots on goal throughout the entire match.

Continuing their remarkable run, New England Revolution II secured their fourth consecutive win against Inter Miami II to conclude Matchday 10. The decisive goal came in the eighth minute when Pierre Cayet connected with a well-timed header from a set-piece delivery by midfielder Jake Rozhansky. Despite Inter Miami II's attempts, they managed only two shots on goal out of their 16 attempts, once again highlighting the solid defensive performance of New England Revolution II.

It is worth noting that Revs II achieved these victories without two of their key scorers. Esmir Bajraktarevic, who co-leads the team with five goals, was absent as he was called up to the first team for their match against the Chicago Fire. Additionally, Damian Rivera was also unavailable due to his selection to represent the Costa Rica Under-23 Men's National Team in the 2023 Maurice Revello Tournament in France.

Looking ahead, New England Revolution II aims to maintain their winning streak as they prepare to face NY Red Bulls II on the road during Matchday 11.
