New York Red Bulls 1 – 0 FC Cincinnati

Graphic: Connor Paquette

A Connor Lade goal in the 38th minute was the difference in this contest at Red Bull Arena. FC Cincinnati improved their performance in the second half and hit the woodwork three times but could not find an equalizer.

“You cannot go anywhere in this league and not play and give everything for a full 90 minutes and expect to get anything out of the game,” said head coach Alan Koch. “The first 45 minutes was a challenge and we had a momentary lapse in concentration to allow the Red Bulls to score a goal. But I think Kendall’s spot on: the response in the second half was excellent. It was exactly what we needed and something we’ll have to build on. But we have to come out and play with a required intensity for a full 90 minutes.”
