Harrison, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored the winning tally in the 90th minute on Thursday as the New York Red Bulls knocked off defending champions Sporting Kansas City, 2-1, at Red Bull Arena in the Eastern Conference knockout round match.

Wright-Phillips has been the Red Bulls' goal-scoring talisman all season, equaling the league-record single-season mark with 27 during the regular season and he continued his sizzling form with goals in the 77th and 90th minutes to send the Red Bulls into the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they will face D.C. United.

Thursday's affair began in much the same fashion as the regular season finale between the sides as New York had the better of the play, creating many scoring chances, while the defending champions looked a little sluggish early on.  Full Story

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Red Bull New York head coach Mike Petke does not believe in curses.

The so-called "Curse of Caricola," a fable that began when the franchise's first-ever match ended in defeat following a last-minute own goal from defender Nicola Caricola, was broken in 2013 when Petke, a first-year head coach, guided the Red Bulls to the MLS Supporters' Shield to snap a 17-season barren spell and grant the club its first major trophy.

For his curtain call, Petke helped New York claim its first playoff win at Red Bull Arena as the Red Bulls rallied for a 2-1 victory over reigning MLS Cup champion Sporting Kansas City on Thursday.  Full Story>>
