MLS Game Summary - Philadelphia at New York



(Wednesday, April 16, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New York 2, Philadelphia 1

Harrison, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Red Bull New York escaped a late charge from the Philadelphia Union at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday, earning its first win of the season with a 2-1 victory.

Following a scoreless opening period with little in the way of scoring opportunities, the Red Bulls broke the deadlock in the 57th minute when Thierry Henry capped a fine move down the left flank by turning in Roy Miller's square pass with a right-footed shot.

The hosts doubled their advantage 10 minutes later when Eric Alexander's cross was nodded home by Lloyd Sam, and it proved to be a pivotal goal as the Union cut the deficit in half with 10 minutes to play.

Maurice Edu's shot was blocked by the outstretched arm of Ibrahim Sekagya inside the six yard box, which allowed Sebastien Le Toux to convert the ensuing penalty.

Sekagya was sent off for his denial of a clear scoring opportunity, reducing the Red Bulls to 10 men.

The Union, though, were unable to take advantage of the extra man in the closing stages of the match as they suffered their second defeat of the season.

New York (1-2-4) improves to seven points on the season, bringing the club level with the Union (1-2-4) in the Eastern Conference table.

The Union, winless in their last five outings, have yet to record a victory at Red Bull Arena.
