Red Bulls hold off Rapids to earn third consecutive win
Daniel Royer and Derrick Etienne scored to help the New York Red Bulls beat the Colorado Rapids 2-1 on Saturday night.
The Red Bulls have won three consecutive games and four of their last five.
Royer opened the scoring in the fifth minute with a left-footed half volley to finish Bradley Wright-Phillips’ wide cross.
Etienne was initially called offside on a goal in the 76th minute, but video review reversed the call and the Red Bulls led 2-0.
Jack McBean pulled the Rapids to 2-1 with a follow-up on Shkelzen Gashi’s saved attempt in the 85th minute, but they could not find an equalizer and have now dropped four in a row.
