- Gonzalo Veron recorded his first career game-winning goal in the 90th minute to give the New York Red Bulls a 3-2 victory over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium.
- New York is now 8-8-2 overall, and 3-6-0 on the road. The Red Bulls third road victory this season tied their entire road win output of last season.
- Head coach Jesse Marsch became the franchise’s all-time leader in MLS regular season wins with 42. Marsch surpassed both Octavio Zambrano and Hans Backe.
- New York conceded the first goal, but answered to minutes later with a strike from Bradley Wright-Phillips. BWP took an attempt on a half-volley and put the ball in off the underside of the crossbar. The goal was unassisted, as the ball fell to Wright-Phillips after a pass from Sean Davis bounced off of a defender.
- BWP now has nine goals on the season and continues to add to his franchise record, with 78 in the regular season.
- New England would pull ahead again in the 27th minute.
- Danny Royer pulled level for the second time by converting a PK in the 55th minute. The goal was Royer’s fifth of the season, and second from the penalty spot.
- In the 90th minute, Veron, who came on as a sub for BWP in the 83rd minute, scored the game-winning goal.
- Veron has recorded a game-winning play in two of the last three MLS regular season matches. Veron tallied his first career game-winning assist against Philadelphia on June 18.
- Felipe tallied the assist on Veron’s game winner. It was Felipe’s second game-winning assist of the season and eighth of his career.
- Royer is a perfect two-for-two on penalty kicks this year. He has tallied New York’s only two penalty-kick goals in 2017.
- Wright-Phillips’ goal in the 23rd minute was the Red Bulls first goal between the 16th minute and 30th minute mark this season.
- Wright-Phillips has scored six career goals against New England, the most by any player in franchise history.
- Dan Metzger, the 23-year old Holmdel, New Jersey native, made his MLS debut for the first team.
- New York is 3-7-0 when allowing the first goal.
- It was the first time this season that New York generated three goals in a single game.
- New York is 42-38-22 in the month of July. The Red Bulls have scored 161 goals and have allowed 159 goals in the seventh month of the year.
- New York is off this weekend, but returns to New England next Thursday, July 13, to take on the Revs in the Quarterfinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. That match will take place at Jordan Field on the campus of Harvard University. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET, with coverage on http://www.NewYorkRedBulls.com and Red Bulls Radio.
