3. MLS: Red Bulls win; Chivas USA face Rapids in third-place battle
July 20th, 2006 3:24PM

MOST COMMENTED

Veteran Chris Henderson beat Columbus keeper Noah Palmer from a tight angle and Jerrod Laventure lobbed him from 28 yards as the New York Red Bulls notched a 2-0 win in Columbus in their first game since Bruce Arena was named head coach.

Interim head coach Richie Williams was still on the sidelines for the Red Bulls, whom Arena won't take over until August. Arena, who is also the team's sporting director, will retain Williams as an assistant and will also bring in a technical director. Former U.S. star John Harkes, who like Williams played for Arena at the University of Virginia and D.C. United, is reportedly in contention for the technical director's position.

The Red Bulls' win marked their fourth of the season, their first against an Eastern Conference foe, their first road win, and their first back-to-back victory.

Chivas USA and Colorado, tied for third place in the Western Conference, meet Thursday evening in Denver (8 pm ET, live on MLS Direct Kick Package, Altitude and Azteca America).

In their two previous meetings this season, Chivas USA won, 4-1, and they tied, 1-1.
