MLS Game Summary - Montreal at New York



(Saturday, March 31, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New York 5, Montreal 2

Harrison, NJ (Sports Network) - Thierry Henry and Red Bull New York have been a different team in their last two matches.

Henry notched a hat trick and added an assist as Red Bull New York rolled to a 5-2 win over the expansion Montreal Impact on Saturday at Red Bull Arena.

New York (2-2-0) scored just one goal as it lost its first two matches, but in the last two games, Henry has five goals and two assists to spark two straight Major League Soccer wins.

The Red Bulls defeated the Colorado Rapids, 4-1, last week when both Henry and Kenny Cooper scored a pair of goals.

The duo picked up where they left off against the Impact (0-3-1).

Henry scored once in the first half against Montreal, and had two goals and an assist on Mehdi Ballouchy's goal after half. Cooper also added his fourth goal of the season.

Montreal led twice in the opening half on goals from Sanna Nyassi in the 18th minute and Justin Mapp in the 38th.

But Henry's first goal answered Nyassi's goal after 28 minutes and Cooper tied the match for the second time in first-half injury time from the penalty spot.

Henry followed in the 56th, set up Ballouchy with a beautiful backheel in the 72nd, and capped his memorable performance and hat trick in the 89th minute on an unassisted goal.

Rafael Marquez, who assisted on Henry's first goal, and Wilman Conde were huge again, one week after the duo made their season debuts. Marquez did leave the match at halftime, but Teemu Tainio replaced him and also played well.

New York visits the Columbus Crew on April 7 for its next match. Montreal will visit Real Salt Lake on Wednesday in search of its first MLS win.
