Wright-Phillips ends NY Red Bulls road woes at Philadelphia
CHESTER, Pa. — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored two late goals and the New York Red Bulls beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Sunday.
Wright-Phillips scored from a sliding one-touch shot off a cross from Kemar Lawrence in the 87th minute to give the Red Bulls a 1-0 lead. It was New York’s first road goal since Wright-Phillips scored in the 13th minute of a 4-1 loss at Houston on April 1, snapping a drought of more than 520 minutes.
He added his eighth of the season in the second minute of stoppage time.
Philadelphia played a man down after Derrick Jones was given a straight red card for a foul on Felipe Martins in the 53rd minute.
Luis Robles had three saves, including a diving, one-handed stop of a rocket by Chris Pontius from point-blank range in the 22nd, and recorded his first shutout since a 2-0 win over Columbus on April 22.
Philadelphia has lost three in a row.
