Red Bulls 2, Revolution 1: Theirry Henry Propels New York To Victory

From SB Nation's The Bent Musket:

"The New England Revolution looked dangerous on offense and created plenty of chances, but in the end could not overcome an equally dangerous New York Red Bulls side in Harrison as they lost 2-1. A Ryan Cochrane own goal and some trademark trickery from Thierry Henry put the Red Bulls in the lead before Zak Boggs' first goal of the season nearly represented a Revolution comeback in the second half.

Boggs' goal represented the Revs first from open play since April 23rd, and for periods of this match they looked in-sync and dangerous. For both teams, though, it was more of the same problems as shaky defense nearly undid the Red Bulls while a horrible lack of finishing ability kept the Revs from getting a share of the spoils."

The Red Bulls victory is their first in seven matches, while the Revolution remain winless on the season. The Red Bulls next game will be at the Portland Timbers Sunday at 10 p.m.
