“They have lots of rotation, they’re difficult to play against if we get the structure wrong. We spent a lot of time on that and just clear reference points. I’m hoping that with all the work we put in for the results against Tampa Bay and San Diego, we keep that momentum and level or maybe go even higher.” – Head Coach Gary Lewis
“We’ve improved a lot offensively, we’ve had more box entries, more ideas about how to get to the box entries, more players around the area. We’re in a situation now where we do get numbers in the box, we do create chances, we score some goals. We’re not scoring enough goals yet, which makes it more difficult to see out the end of the game.” – Lewis on the team’s offense
3 – O’Vonte Mullings is tied for sixth in the Eastern Conference with three assists so far in his first professional season.
6 – Since the beginning of the 2021 season, six Red Bulls Academy players have scored for Red Bulls II, including two this season (Illia Tyrkus and Sam Williams).
