New York Red Bulls stampede United, 4-0 at RFK

On May 1, 2011

French soccer legend Thierry Henry scored twice in the 1st half and teammates Joel Lindpere and Juan Agudelo added goals to lead the visiting Red Bulls in a decisive 4-0 win over DC United at RFK Stadium.


Henry hit his first shot early (12') heading a cross from No. 8 Jan Gunnar Solli, beating United keeper Bill Hamid. DC's goalie took 5 shots on goal, saving one. At the other end, New York keeper No. 18 Bouna Coundoul played nearly flawless, saving 3 shots on goal.


Henry hit home again (38') late in the first half off a deflection from a tough Solli shot.


At the break, United head coach Ben Olson subbed Dax McCarty out for Branko Boskovic to add firepower on the frontline. United mustered 2 shots, zero on goal in the first stanza. With the switch, production and time of possession kicked up dramatically. United took 7 shots, 3 on goal in the 2nd half.


But the pressure that United forced backfired when the New York capitalized on the stretched-thin defense. Henry hit a streaking Lindpere, who shed No. 19 Clyde Simms for the goal (76').


Playing to the final whistle, the Red Bulls charged down the field in stoppage-time to drive another goal past Hamid, courtesy of the quick feet of Agudelo (92'), to finish the match and send United fans home with a loss.


On Friday, April 29 United travels to Texas to face the Houston Dynamo. United take on Seattle Sounders FC on Wednesday, May 4 at RFK Stadium.
