San Jose Earthquakes 1, New York Red Bulls 3 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

The New York Red Bulls maintained their case for the 2018 Supporters’ Shield and broke a longstanding run of poor form in Northern California, as they defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 3-1 on Saturday at Avaya Stadium.

The Red Bulls won in San Jose for the first time since 2003, while keeping the deficit in the Shield race to just one point, behind leaders Atlanta United.

The Red Bulls pushed the tempo early, even while being on the road, and they found their breakthrough just before the half-hour mark, as Alex Muyl pushed a ball just over the line at the far post to open the scoring. Mere moments later, Bradley Wright-Phillips doubled the lead, following up on a shot off the post on a free kick with a finish from a very narrow angle, just in front of the endline.
