Match Highlights: NY 1, HOU 0

By Frank Della Femina

The Red Bulls cruised to their third-straight victory and third-straight shutout Wednesday night when they defeated the Houston Dynamo 1-0 at Red Bull Arena (Recap).

Kenny Cooper notched the lone Red Bulls goal in the seventh minute as he charged in to disrupt a seemingly safe back pass toward goal. As Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall was forced to make a sprawling attempt to cover up, Cooper just got enough of his foot on it to send the ball on goal and into the mesh for his eighth of the season (Watch: Cooper's Goal).

Rookie 'keeper Ryan Meara was once again spectacular in goal, stopping all three of Houston's attempts, complete with some circus-like theatrics in the final minutes of the match (Watch: Meara's Save).

The Red Bulls return to action Sunday when they head to PPL Park in Philly for a 12:30pm ET kickoff against the Union (watch live on ESPN2).

New York's next home game is three weeks off, as they're set to face off against Chivas USA for a 7pm ET kick on May 23. Tickets are available on Red Bulls Ticket Central or by calling 877.RB.SOCCER.
