Live Commentary

  • Off to write my reaction. Check back later. This was Avery Raimondo. I hope you enjoyed the commentary.
  • 90' + 3'
    And that's all here. A pretty poor game to be honest.
  • 90' + 3'
    Place getting loud for final RBNY corner.
  • 90'
    3 minutes left to go here in Harrison.
  • 88'
    SubstitutionTony Tchani J. Agudelo
  • 88'
    Agudelo in for Tchani almost creates a goal as his block leads to a RBNY attack. Henry found Agudelo streaking in the area, but his grounded cross was cleared.
  • 87'
    Angel almost found a winner as he corralled a bouncing ball on his chest and volleyed wide with his left foot.
  • 87'
    Agudelo looks set to make his league debut.
  • 85'
    Ream recovered well as he stopped Saborio from breaking out after a RBNY corner kick.
  • 82'
    Sutton parried Morales' dangerous freekick away and then Saborio was unable to head in at the goal line the ball that was played across the box.
  • 81'
    Pointless foul by Tchani there. RSL is now lining up a freekick about 28 yards out.
  • 77'
    SubstitutionAndy Williams Ned Grabavoy
  • 77'
    Ned Grabavoy stepping in for Andy Williams.
  • 74'
    The match is slowly getting more life with both teams countering. Paulo just had an effort smothered by Sutton.
  • 69'
    Angel's header went high. It was difficult, but we've seen him score that while with the club.
  • 68'
    SubstitutionRobbie Findley Paulo Jr.
  • 68'
    Findley making way for Paulo.
  • 66'
    20,829 in the house today.
  • 65'
    The crowd roars as Tchani passed up a shot on the edge of the area. Angel's effort is blocked.
  • 62'
    An exciting first half has morphed into a second one with a paucity of opportunities. That being said, Marquez just slipped over the top, but whiffed his volley.
  • 60'
    RBNY FO seems to have decided to omit the YSA chant from the big screens.
  • 59'
    Robbie Findley is clearly taking finishing lessons from Tony Tchani.
  • 57'
    Weird incident between Miller and Saborio where the Red Bull seemed to get slapped in the head by his fellow Costa Rican. Whistle blew, but no card.
  • 55'
    Straight across from the press area is a banner that reads "No MLS on FIFA dates". Word.
  • 52'
    Consensus in the press box was that that was the typical Tchani shank.
  • 51'
    A nice touch on RBNY's part as ESC's chants are appearing alongside the stadium's live feed.
  • 50'
    Some conversation between Beckerman and Ballouchy. I'm wondering if Beckerman is mentioning how lopsided their trade was.
  • 45'
    The Red Bulls just kicked off the second half.
  • Juan Agudelo, Danleigh Borman, and Austin Da Luz are the only Red Bulls warming up at halftime.
  • That's the end of the first half. Should be an interesting second interval.
  • 45'
    Even more action as a Marquez freekick is also blocked, but into the path of JPA whose effort knocks off a hand in the RSL penalty area. Henry chases after Marrufo, who has not had a good game, in protest.
  • 45'
    Marquez plays Henry into the box with a great splitting ball, but Olave defends well and Titi crumbles to the ground.
  • 44'
    Some drama at the end of the half. Saborio is played through by RSL, but is brought down at the edge of the box by Roy Miller who received a yellow card. The ensuing freekick by Morales is blocked by the wall.
  • 43'
    Yellow Card R. Miller

    Yellow Card Jamison Olave
  • 38'
    Jamison Olave and Chris Albright received yellow after the usual corner kick scuffle.
  • 36'
    Some decent Red Bull buildup, but Albright skied his cross out of bounds.
  • 34'
    Ballouchy played a tantalizing left-footed pass through RSL's six-yard box, but no RBNY attackers got onto it.
  • 33'
    Two awful giveaways by Henry after he slowed down consecutive Red Bull attacks. Findley just drew the corner after dribbling into the RBNY box.
  • 31'
    The game's getting physical now with some late tackles.
  • 29'
    Johnson's walking off with the trainer while Ned Grabavoy is warming up on the sidelines. That said, Johnson just returned.
  • 28'
    Will Johnson is currently down on the field after a foul by Rafa Marquez.
  • 25'
    Robbie Russell of all people struck the post after the freekick bounced to him at the top of the box.
  • 24'
    Robbie Findley just drew a foul on Tony Tchani in a dangerous area. Javi Morales is set to serve.
  • 23'
    Sorry about the wait. I'm Avery Raimondo and I'll be here with some live commentary on the currently scoreless Red Bulls vs Real Salt Lake match.
  • 13'
    Corner kick - Albright is down after a collision.
  • 10'
    Juan Pablo Angel leaps for a Ballouchy cross - he's defended well and his header isn't able to direct the ball on goal.
  • 9'
    Findley! Off the post with an impressive shot on RSL's behalf.
  • 8'
    It's scoreless in the early going, but New York has had the better of things - including a nice shot on goal by Mehdi Ballouchy that Nick Rimando leapt to catch.
