That is how long it took for Red Bulls leading goalscorer Tim Cahill to find the back of the net on Sunday, setting a new MLS mark for the fastest goal recorded. Of more significance, Cahill’s eventual game-winner set the tone in New York’s 3-0 win over the Houston Dynamo. The Red Bulls are just one win away from capturing their first-ever Supporters’ Shield.
Unsurprisingly, Cahill’s rocket is up for MLS Goal of the Week, going up against Vancouver’s Kekuta Manneh, Colorado’s Deshorn Brown and Gabriel Torres and Columbus’ Aaron Schoenfeld.
