New York Red Bulls close out first phase of 2017 preseason with 4-0 win over University of Arizona

RBNY got that scrimmage against U of A in before they closed out their first Arizona training camp of the 2017 preseason.

The New York Red Bulls scheduled a surprise friendly with the University of Arizona men's soccer team, then un-scheduled it, and clearly re-scheduled it for immediately after their run-out against New England Revolution on February 3.

We don't know much at all about who played, and 45 minutes doesn't really count as a game at all, but for the sake of completeness: let the record show RBNY did give U of A the game it had asked for, and took advantage of the opportunity to get a few goals.

So the Red Bulls get to leave Arizona with a sort of victory, and U of A's players have some memories of playing a pro-level opponent.
