MLS Game Summary - New York at Philadelphia



(Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New York 3, Philadelphia 0

Chester, PA (Sports Network) - Red Bull New York closed out its regular season campaign on Saturday with a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park as Kenny Cooper netted a pair of goals.

Cooper scored the opener from the penalty spot after 13 minutes, while Thierry Henry doubled the advantage 10 minutes before halftime and Cooper wrapped up the win in the second half with his 18th goal of the season.

The result means New York finishes third in the Eastern Conference and will face D.C. United in the conference semifinals.

Philadelphia closes out its campaign with three successive defeats.

"There were a lot of ups and downs," said Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath. "Coaching changes and a lot of player changes.

"It was tough going stretches of 6-7 games without a win. I hate losing. (Eighteen) losses is unacceptable by my standard and the team's standard."

Tim Cahill won the penalty kick in the 13th minute when he was tripped inside the area by Philadelphia's Carlos Valdes, allowing Cooper to step to the spot and beat goalkeeper Zac MacMath.

Henry netted his 15th goal of the season in the 35th minute after sloppy defending allowed him to beat his man inside the box and chip the ball over the goalkeeper.

The Union came out stronger after halftime and nearly pulled to within a goal as a header from Valdes struck the crossbar, but New York put the result away 10 minutes later.

Cooper was released into the area after a nice one-two with Dax McCarty and he rolled his shot inside the far post.

"Hopefully, we have momentum," Cooper said. "(We have) a full week to prepare for the start of the playoffs."
