MLS: NY Redbulls Win First Ever in Houston

NY Redbulls

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The NY Redbulls stepped out onto the field at BBVA Compass Stadium to face the Houston Dynamo in a game that produced the very much unexpected score of 4-1 in NY’s favor.

Ever since the arrival of Bradley Wright-Phillips, the team has been playing a more fluid type of soccer; the passing, running, defending and overall work ethic as been inspired by his presence on the field. He brings the English style of soccer in the way that there is a mixture of skill, speed and the understanding of when to pass, dribble or shoot. These are all important factors that have been needed by this very franchise.

The defensive effort was there tonight more than it has been for awhile. They defended and attacked as a team.

Against Chivas USA, the team lost 3-2 as they underestimated their opponents throughout the match. They barely defeated DC United at 2-1 on home soil which was a slight disappointment (besides the three points).

Earlier tonight, they destroyed Houston on their own turf for the first time all without midfield general Tim Cahill. Cahill has scored at least three match winners during this season alone. His absence from the team was expected to be tough, but coach Petke filled the void left by him almost to perfection.

Now, the team is on high morale and they have to make sure not to lose it. They need to take advantage of it for their next game. The key is consistency when trying to remain dominant in the race for the prestigious MLS title.
