Red Bull Reserves Down Columbus

MOST COMMENTED

Following a series of decidedly poor performances, an undermanned New York Red Bulls side put together a comprehensive team effort to blow by the Columbus Crew at home on Saturday. Regulars Claudio Reyna, Ronald Waterreus and Hunter Freeman were all injured, while 17-year old Jozy Altidore was at his high school prom, but in the in the end, none of them were missed, as the Bulls put four past Andy Gruenebaum en route to their league-leading fifth shutout of the season.

It was a particularly fine display from the attacking trio of Juan Pablo Angel, stand-in John Wolyniec and Clint Mathis, who combined for three of the Bulls four goals on Saturday. Angel looked dangerous all night, playing a clever one-two with Dane Richards to supply Wolyniec for the first goal, heading the ball toward Mathis for the second, and then intercepting a poor pass from Marcos Gonzalez to slot home his first goal of the season.

Wolyniec, in his second start of the season, also played very well, notching a goal and an assist. "He's an experienced player who has a good attitude every day in training and he plays the role that he's given," Red Bulls coach Bruce Arena said of Wolyniec. "Give him a lot of credit. He played quite well tonight." It was a poor defensive from Columbus, which had looked bright going forward early in the first half. Mathis' goal came from a failed clearance from a throw-in, while Angel picked off the kind of lazy pass defenders have nightmares about. Rookie Sal Caccavale squeaked home the fourth in the 92nd minute.
