MLS: Facundo Torres (two goals), Orlando City blank Red Bulls


Share post:

Facundo Torres scored two goals and Orlando City mostly rolled in a 3-0 victory against the host New York Red Bulls on Saturday night at Harrison, N.J.

Ivan Angulo scored in the first half for the only goal prior to intermission and added an assist in the second half.

Torres converted a penalty kick for Orlando City’s second goal before another tally later in the game.

Orlando City (6-4-5, 23 points) defeated New York for the second time this season.

The Red Bulls (4-6-7, 19 points) had won two of their previous four games.

Pedro Gallese was called upon for two saves for Orlando City.

Red Bulls goalkeeper Carlos Coronel also made two saves.

Angulo scored in the 18th minute with a shot from the center of the box. It came as he was on the receiving end of a delivery from Wilder Cartagena, who was credited with an assist. Angulo took possession just outside the box and made the necessary move to put the ball past Coronel.

It was Angulo’s third goal of the season, but his first since April 15.

The Red Bulls played a man down beginning just two minutes into the second half. That’s when Andres Reyes was issued a second yellow card for a bad foul.

The penalty kick came a few minutes later in the 51st minute following a foul on Sean Nealis. Like Angulo, Torres also had a scoreless May.

Torres posted his third and fourth goals of the season. On his goal in the 72nd minute, Angulo did the bulk of the work by racing more than half the length of the field with an extended dribble and passing to Torres.
