Edelman's goal was the first of his MLS career, while Clark's goal was his first tally of 2022.
Miami opened the scoring in the 19th minute, as Gonzalo Higuaín ripped a shot off a free kick just outside of the box.
New York leveled right before halftime, as Cristian Cásseres Jr. played a pass to John Tolkin along the edge of the box. Tolkin flicked the ball to Morgan who sent it into the back of the net.
Morgan’s goal was his team-leading 12th in MLS play this season and 15th across all competitions. The Scottish midfielder now has 19 goals in his three-year MLS career. Morgan ranks third among MLS midfielders in goals this season.
Tolkin’s assist was his third of the season and fifth of his MLS career. The assist for Cásseres Jr. was his fourth of the season and third over New York’s last three matches. It marked the 15th of his MLS career.
The Red Bulls took the lead in the 54th minute, as Kyle Duncan played in a ball that was headed out by Miami, but found the feet of Edelman, who immediately ripped a shot past Drake Callender.
New York struck again in the 73rd minute, as Dylan Nealis headed the ball from just outside the box to Clark, who brought the ball down to his left foot and sent it in.
Edelman’s goal was the first of his MLS career. He is the 15th youngest to score a goal in MLS this season. The goal for Clark was his first of the season and the seventh of his MLS career. The assist for Nealis marked his third of the season and fourth of his MLS career.
New York earned its 350th MLS regular season victory in franchise history, which ranks second all-time in MLS history.
