Jones praised for doing "an excellent job" at left back after first-half tactical switch

MONTREAL – A resolute defensive effort was key to the New England Revolution's performance on Saturday afternoon. That much was clear following their 0-0 draw with the Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo.

One shift made late in the first half had a particularly significant impact on the game, as Revs rookie DeJuan Jones showed poise beyond his years when he replaced Edgar Castillo at the left back position.

“[Montreal] had serious pace on that right-hand side and Edgar is a great player, but I just thought they were really building up on that right-hand side and I wanted to get some more pace out there to match pace for pace,” said interim head coach Mike Lapper.
