Connor Lade's first MLS goal for the New York Red Bulls

The club's long-serving utility man has reminded us all of his utility.

Connor Lade has scored goals for the New York Red Bulls before, but never in MLS - until mid-way through his fifth season with the club.

In his 51st start (69th appearance) for RBNY in MLS, playing against Orlando City, Lade scored a goal:

It was timely: the Red Bulls had been laboring in the final third, moving the ball relatively confidently up the field only to lose their way in front of goal. Lade put his left foot through a loose ball in the box to show his teammates what they should be doing when there is a chance to shoot.

Congrats, Connor!
