HARRISON, N.J. -- Second-half goals from Fabian Espindola and Lloyd Sam helped the Red Bulls defeat PDL side Reading United AC, 2-0, in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday night.
The Red Bulls took the lead through Espindola in the 61st minute. Solid attacking play led to Sam passing through to McCarty, who crossed it toward the back post, where Espindola put it into the net.
Sam doubled New York's advantage six minutes later. The midfielder played a give-and-go with Espindola and Sam found space on the right side of the box, chipping the ball over diving goalkeeper John McCarthy.
