The second string wasn’t as hot as the starters, but that’s OK. No one expected a lot out of a team that had to play 120 minutes on Tuesday in Cincinnati and then another 90 in Portland on Friday. A 2-0 loss to the Portland Timbers in that situation is not unexpected. The team must now refocus its energy on their last regular season matchup against New York City FC. Can the New York Red Bulls pull out a home victory under the Friday Night Lights and work towards a better playoff position? Can NYC FC fans understand they don’t have a real stadium without having to travel 117 miles?
