Visitors did not take long to prioritize. From the 3e minute of play, Canadian striker Teal Bunbury sent the ball to his teammate Lee Nguyen, who immediately handed it over to him, allowing the “Revs” player to escape in front of goalkeeper Sean Johnson and outmaneuver him.
Nguyen sealed the outcome of the match with a penalty shot in the 80e minute.
NYCFC reduced the lead to just one goal on a corner kick late in stoppage time, but the Big Apple team ran out of time.
It was not because of a lack of opportunity that the home team lost. The New York formation directed 16 shots at Matt Turner’s cage, eight of which were on target, but the goalkeeper was alert.
