Jordan Allen’s 87th-minute goal helps RSL beat Red Bulls 2-1
SANDY, Utah (AP) — Jordan Allen broke a tie in the 87th minute and Real Salt Lake beat New York 2-1 on Wednesday night to end the Red Bulls’ four-game winning streak.
Tony Beltran set up Allen with a low cross along the top of the 18-yard box, and Allen’s right-footed shot deflected in off Red Bulls defender Chris Duvall.
Yura Movsisyan tied it for RSL (8-4-3) in the 65th minute when he slipped behind the two central defenders on John Stertzer’s long ball and finished with a header into the right corner of the goal.
The Red Bulls (7-8-1) had shut out all four opponents during their winning streak and Movsisyan’s goal ended a scoreless streak of 474 minutes.
Gideon Baah headed home Sean Davis’ corner to open the scoring in the seventh minute for New York.
The Red Bulls’ Aurelien Collin was sent off in the 90th minute for violent conduct.
