The lower-division side appeared headed for a stunning upset, but their MLS opponents struck back with a quick-fire double to level proceedings. 

Gonzalo Veron scored in the 75th minute before Bradley Wright-Phillips followed that goal up with a tally of his own just three minutes later. 

And Wright-Phillips would notch his second in extra-time, deflating the crowd with a 101st-minute header to send the Red Bulls through. 

The Red Bulls will take on Sporting Kansas City at Children's Mercy Park on Sept. 20 in the Open Cup final.
