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.

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