[MLS] With rumors circulating that Macedonian international goalkeeper Ola Nikolic might be bound for the Red Bulls, a pair of goalies on trial helped New York shut out Lech Poznan of Poland, 1-0, at La Manga, Spain on Thursday.

Forward Juan Pablo Angel, preparing for his fourth MLS season, scored the only goal as New York marked up its first victory and first shutout of 2010. It opened its three-game stint Monday by tying CSKA Moscow of Russia, 1-1.

Coach Hans Backe again utilized the liberal substitution policies in force for these friendlies by sending out 18 players, including former Toronto FC keeper Greg Sutton, who gave way at halftime to fellow trialist Bill Gaudette, formerly of Columbus and Puerto Rico Islanders of the USL. They combined for the shutout, with Gaudette twice thwarting Bortosz Berescynski in the final minutes. Trialist Frederic Jonsson played the entire game for Red Bull.

Sutton easily held a first-half free kick by Sergei Krivets, and Red Bulls rookie Conor Chinn got a good look at goal via a pass by Dane Richards but his shot was stopped by Lech Poznan goalie Krzysztof Kotorowski. Richards broke through later in the half and Kotorowski stoned him as well.

In the 42nd minute, Jeremy Hall threaded a pass to Angel at the top of the penalty area, and Angel shot low with his right foot to score the game's only goal.

Berescynski tested Gaudette in the 82nd minute with a cross shot that Gaudette stretched to tip away. The keeper found space in the box and rifled an on-target shot across the face of goal that a fully extended Gaudette poked away. In second half stoppage time, a Berescynski header went straight at Gaudette in the game's final scoring opportunity.

New York plays its final scheduled game in La Manga Monday against Norwegian club Stromsgodset IF.
