Bulls Defeat Dallas; Get Much Needed 3 Points

A sunny, 80 degree day at Giants Stadium was the venue of the New York Red Bulls vs. FC Dallas. Both teams had 16 points before the game. Jozy Altidore, the former Red Bulls player, is now with Spanish club, Villareal. That meant that Oscar Echeverry, the striker from Colombia, would get a place in the starting lineup. The starting lineup for the Red Bulls was:

GK- Jon Conway

D- Andrew Boyens

D- Hunter Freeman

D- Kevin Goldthwaite

D- Carlos Mendes

M- Dave van den Bergh

M-Seth Stammler

M- Mike Magee

M- Sinisa Ubiparipovic

M- Dane Richards

F- Oscar Echeverry

The subtitutions for the Red Bulls were:

Jeff Parke came in for Kevin Goldthwaite in the 24th minute

John Wolyniec came in for Oscar Echeverry in the 62nd minute

Luke Sassano came in for Mike Magee in the 79th minute

The substitutions not used for the Red Bulls were:

Danleigh Borman- Chris Leitch- Chris Megaloudis- Zach Thorton

The starting lineup for FC Dallas was:

The substitutions not used for Fc Dallas were:

Eric Avila- Ray Burse- Michael Dello-Russo - Anthony Wallace

The Misconduct Summary was:

Dallas- Aaron Pitchkolan (caution; pushing, holding - 62' )
New York- Jeff Parke (caution; Professional foul - 69' )

 The kickoff was at 1:50 pm. Both teams desperately needed the 3 points, and new FC Dallas manager, Schellas Hyndman was looking for a win on his debut. New York came out testing Dallas goalkeeper Dario Sala, pushed away a Sinisa Ubiparipovic volley from 16 yards out. Later, Dane Richards ran on to a Hunter Freeman throw in, and sent a cross in the box, where another Ubiparipovic attempt was stopped for the game's first corner kick. In the 16th minute, Ubiparipovic  forced Sala into another diving stop, which went out for the second corner of the game. The corner, which was taken by Ubiparipovic was sent over Sala's head, to the far post where Kevin Goldthwaite headed the ball home for the Red Bulls 1-0 advantage. But in the 24th minute, Goldthwaite slowly walked off the field with a pair of strained hamstrings. Another injury, to go with Juan Pablo Agel and Claudio Reyna. :(  Let's go Bulls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
