U15s: The Red Bull U15s did not play last week.
U14s: The U14 Red Bulls posted a 5-2 win at U14 Delco on Saturday, November 6. The Red Bulls fell behind 1-0 in the first minute of the game when a Delco player blasted in a shot from 25 yards out. The U14s responded quickly and went ahead 4-1 by halftime. Chris Lema (Ridgefield, NJ) recorded a first half brace, and was joined on the opening 45 minute scoresheet by Joe Swenson (Massapequa Park, NY) and Theo Miller (Brooklyn, NY).
The Red Bulls continued to press the attack in the second half and scored the fifth goal off a header from Ezequiel Cei Sandoval (Elizabeth, NJ). Delco scored its second goal with two minutes remaining off a well taken free kick from 25 yards out. The Red Bulls extend their unbeaten record to 13-0-0 on the season.
U13s: U13 Red Bulls defeat U13 South Central, 5-0. Marcelo Borges (Kearny, NJ) opened the scoring for the Red Bulls after some good play by Malik Steward (Paterson, NJ). Steward doubled the Red Bulls lead shortly after when he calmed slotted the ball past the South Central goalkeeper. Just after half time, South Central was awarded a penalty kick. Red Bulls goalkeeper Jake Leahy (Brick, NJ) made a superb save to keep the Red Bulls in the lead. Anthony Sileo (Mahwah, NJ) scored three goals in the middle of the second half and completed his hat trick after some great work down the flank by Max Lurie (South Orange, NJ).
“We moved the ball well, especially in the 2nd half. Kyle Zajec (Westport, CT) and Callum Johnson (New York, NY) were very good again. Obviously Anthony found his game on the second half with three goals,” said head coach Antonio Meza. "We did a better job on the outside with Malik and Orestis Sousonis (Dover, NJ) and the overlaps of John Antunes (Fairfield, NJ) and Cameron Allen (Old Bridge, NJ). The back four was solid. Jake Leahy had a great moment denying a penalty kick that would have allowed South Central back into the game. That was a key moment for us.”
