The New York Red Bulls achieved their third consecutive preseason win after defeating Independiente del Valle 2-1 at RBNY Training Facility.

Mathias Jørgensen and Kaku scored the goals for Chris Armas’ men, while Dani Nieto netted the Ecuadorian’s side only goal. 

The starting line-up to start the game included Ryan Meara, Tim Parker, Amro Tarek, Rece Buckmaster, John Tolkin, Marc Rzatkowski, Sean Davis, Daniel Royer, Florian Valot, Omir Fernandez and Brian White. 

Meara would end up being the only player to go the full 90, providing important saves throughout the match.
