New York Red Bulls vs. Philadelphia Union: Recap & Reaction

Markus Holgersson: he scores goals.

The Red Bulls picked up their first ever win at PPL Park, beating the Philadelphia Union 3-2 with goals from Joel Lindpere, Markus Holgersson, and Kenny Cooper. Lindpere scored early on to give New York the lead before Lionard Pajoy leveled for Philadelphia. Freddy Adu was sent off for simulation late in the first half, but the Union took the lead shortly after the break and looked far the better side throughout.

Philly will rue some of their fifty missed chances and messed-up counter-attacks, and the Red Bulls looked tired and lacking sharpness at the back, but New York managed to score more of the (few) chances they created, and will be more than happy to head home for a bit of rest with three points and first place in the Eastern Conference.
