Finally, Red Bulls Pull One Out

The Red Bulls got some relief over the weekend. In Richie Williams' first game as interim coach, the team snapped its 16-game winless streak in all competitions, winning for the first time since May 8 and two days after the resignation of Juan Carlos Osorio.

Juan Pablo Angel struck twice, becoming the club's leader in all-time goals scored in regular season games as the 10-men New York Red Bulls defeated FC Dallas 3-2 at Giants Stadium on Sunday. Angel scored the game's first goal with a 20-yard volley off of a chipped assist from Albert Celades. Angel then scored the gamewinner in the 88th minute, pouncing on a rebound after a Mac Kandji shot. The Red Bulls played short-handed for more than minutes after Kevin Goldthwaite attempted to punch defender Andre Rocha.

Richie Williams made the necessary personnel adjustments. Leo Krupnik came on for Celades. He then brought on Kandji and Jorge Rojas for John Wolyniec and Sinisa Ubiparipovic. The Red Bulls will try to win back-to-back games for the first time all season next Sunday when they play host to the Eastern Conference-leading Columbus Crew.
