The Red Bulls, in a house where they haven’t won since 2007, and at elevation you can’t really prepare for, pounced on the home side early and hung on late for the 2-1 win.
The win was New York’s second straight on the road and third straight overall.
“Elevation winds up being a huge opponent whenever you come here, because you never have enough time to adapt and you have to find ways to dig in and make plays," Marsch said.
With belief growing within the side, the experience of finding different ways to win is invaluable.
Sean Davis echoed that sentiment following the match.
“I thought it was a really professional performance for our group and something that we should be really proud of," Davis said. "Coming here is never easy at elevation. They are a good team too and I’m really proud of the effort that the guys put in.”
“I think the group has belief in themselves and in each other,” Marsch said. “We know that we have a good group. We know that we have a group of players that can fit the way we want to play. We have good mentality and we have good leaders and I think it’s still growing into itself. I really believe we still have a long way to go to be the team that we can be. The good part is that we are finding ways to get wins and we are finding ways to manage moments."
It’s no secret winning on the road in MLS is a tough thing to do and with four out of their next five matches coming on the road, this one provides momentum for the whole squad heading into Atlanta and beyond.
"Wins on the road always feel good, especially when guys had to empty the tank and give everything they had," Marsch said. "Those always feel good, and they give you momentum. That is important heading into next weekend.”
