SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs NEW YORK RED BULLS LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. August 26, 2012 (WEEK 25, MLS Game #244) 8 p.m. CT (ESPN2/Deportes; GolTV; RDS2) A mouthwatering match is ahead in front of an ESPN2 audience on Sunday night when the top two teams in the Eastern Conference meet as Sporting Kansas City play host to the New York Red Bulls. Sporting pulled to within a point of the overall lead in MLS with their third victory on the trot last weekend, a 1-0 win at Toronto FC. The Red Bulls remained unbeaten at home on the year and stayed within two points of SKC, coming back for a 3-2 win against the Portland Timbers. REFEREE: Hilario Grajeda.

In each of the last six matches between the clubs, over the last three years, a team has won by shutout.  Coaches record: Peter Vermes vs. NY: P5 W2 L3 D0 … Hans Backe v KC: P4 W3 L1 D0 SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City extended their winning streak to three games, getting the game’s lone goal for a victory against Toronto FC on Saturday afternoon at BMO Field. Sporting are in first place in the Eastern Conference, with 46 points from 25 matches. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal came in the 83rd minute. SKC's Graham Zusi tapped a dangerous free kick into the path of Kei Kamara and his shot deflected off the defensive wall and the fingertips of goalkeeper Milos Kocic before settling in the back of the net.  Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made three changes to the team that defeated D.C. United 2-1 at Livestrong Sporting Park. Chance Myers and Seth Sinovic came in at fullback for - Michael Harrington and Neven Markovic, and Julio Cesar started in midfield for Michael Thomas.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-3-3): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic Paulo Nagamura, Roger Espinoza, Julio Cesar (Lawrence Olum 88) - Graham Zusi, Teal Bunbury, Kei Kamara (C.J. Sapong 86). TEAM NEWS  Sporting’s three-game winning streak is their longest since opening the league campaign with seven consecutive victories. They had won back-to-back MLS games just once since suffering their first defeat of the season April 21.  The victory was the seventh away from home for Sporting, most road wins in MLS. Their .615 winning percentage on the road also leads the league.

“What I take away from the game is that it is another victory on the road. I think right now we have the best record in the lead,” said SKC manager Peter Vermes. “To be successful in any league you have to be successful on the road so from that perspective I appreciate the effort and also getting a clean sheet and not giving up a goal.” Graham Zusi recorded his third assist in the last four games. He pulled back into a tie atop the league assist table with 11 for the season, level with LA’s Landon Donovan. Kei Kamara scored his second goal in the last four games. The goal was the first directly from a free kick for Sporting this season, and their first goal scored from outside the penalty area. “Nagamura got the foul which is great. It was one of those where the ‘keeper got caught the wrong way and all that was in my head was to hit the ball on target. I got the bounce off it and that bounce gave us the three points,” said Kamara. Since the start of July, Kamara has four goals and two assists. He leads MLS with 96 attempts at goal. Over the last four matches, the front three of Kamara, Zusi and Teal Bunbury have combined for four goals and four assists. “Teal’s pressure up top has just been excellent,” Vermes said. “He puts teams under pressure because he can stretch them with his speed. It opens the field for us to be able to play underneath. So even when he doesn’t score, he does so much for us that it’s hard to take him off. The thing that’s big about Kei is when he plays out wide, very seldom does the other team – if they’re playing their regular players – have the proper matchup. So a lot of times teams have to make the adjustment and put another guy out there to mark him, and all of a sudden that changes the way they play.” The Sporting back four of Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler and Seth Sinovic was back together again for the first time since July 14, which was a 2-0 victory at Columbus. That quartet also started the first eight games of the season together; in the 12 games it has been together, SKC is 10-1-1, allowing just four goals. “I thought they were good,” Vermes said. “This wasn’t an easy game to play, because [TFC] were hitting long balls all over the place. When they’ve got big boys up front like Johnson and Hassli and they’re dropping long balls into them, you can get hurt by the ball bouncing the wrong way.” For the eighth time this season in league play, and the 11th time in 30 matches in all competitions, Vermes did not use his full complement of three substitutions. “Sometimes I don’t like messing with the continuity unless someone is really struggling physically or someone is not in form and I didn’t think that anybody was struggling on the field,” said Vermes. “Before we scored I was actually going to make a sub, I changed it around a little bit for tactical reasons, but I think at the end the two guys that came in did really well for us.”

NEW YORK RED BULLS The New York Red Bulls made it two wins in a row and extended their home unbeaten streak, coming back for a 3-2 victory against the Portland Timbers on Sunday evening at Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls are in second place in the Eastern Conference, with 44 points from 25 games. LAST MATCH  The Timbers took the lead after just eight minutes. Set free down the right flank by Kosuke Kimura, Sal Zizzo carried into the area before laying a square pass for Bright Dike to finish in the penalty area.  The Timbers doubled their lead in the 32nd minute after hitting on a counter attack following a turnover near midfield. A quick passing sequence on the edge of area saw Darlington Nagbe get onto the end of a pass from Zizzo and roll a shot past Gaudette off the inside of the left post.  New York pulled a goal back 11 minutes later. Kenny Cooper, who came on as a 36th minute substitute, headed home a Jan Gunnar Solli cross from the right flank.  The Red Bulls then equalized through Tim Cahill just before halftime on a controversial play. Dax McCarty hit a shot that deflected off defender David Horst’s outstretched arms and back to Cahill, who buried the rebound. The goal stood despite claims referee Jason Anno blew his whistle and signaled for a penalty kick before changing his call.  The Red Bulls hit for the winner seven minutes from the end. After a corner kick was scrambled clear, Solli drove a cross back into the area and Heath Pearce headed home inside the right post for the decisive tally.  Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe made one change that defeated the Houston Dynamo 2-0 at Red Bull Arena. Jan Gunnar Solli came into the team in place of Kenny Cooper.  NEW YORK RED BULLS (4-1-3-2): Bill Gaudette - Connor Lade, Heath Pearce, Markus Holgersson, Roy Miller (Kenny Cooper 36) - Dax McCarty - Jan Gunnar Solli, Tim Cahill, Joel Lindpere (Teemu Tainio 73) - Thierry Henry, Sebastien Le Toux. TEAM NEWS  The Red Bulls won for a fourth consecutive game at Red Bull Arena, and remained undefeated this season on their home ground, now 9-0-3 in Harrison.

“The way we are performing away we would have lost the game for sure. So, I think also being in this home stretch, winning most of the games, [we] have to kind of believe that you can win every game, whoever you play,” said Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe. “But going two down is normally a little bit too much. To score at least two goals at the end of the first half it was a gift definitely.” Tim Cahill netted his first MLS goal, banging in the rebound from the controversial play at the end of the first half. Cahill has a goal and two assists in three games since joining the Red Bulls. Kenny Cooper scored his 14th goal of the season, now tied for second place in the MLS Golden Boot standings, with RSL’s Álvaro Sabório, four goals behind San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski. Cooper came on shortly after the half-hour mark, in place of fullback Roy Miller. Two of Cooper’s goals this season have come as a substitute. “You probably have to go back about 20 years the last time I made a sub after 33 minutes. Or if it has happened before I’m not sure,” said Backe. “But, I mean the way we defended the back four, even if we make mistakes at midfield, I was trying to attack, you have this feeling the back four have to clean up. They still have to save you, even if you make mistakes higher up on the pitch. Of course going two down, a lot of players played under their normal level of standards so it was quite easy just to get Kenny [Cooper] on the pitch, I mean we needed a goal scorer.” Jan Gunnar Solli recorded his third two-assist game in his MLS career. Of his 11 career assists since coming to the league before the start of last season, six have come in multiple-assist matches. “Portland were good in closing us down but we got a lot of plays on the sides even though they tried to follow us,” said Solli. “Both Connor (Lade) and I didn’t have a lot of space in the second half, they gave us options to play and we kept the ball better in the second half and I think we deserved the third goal. For the fourth time in seven starts since coming to the club, Bill Gaudette was beaten for multiple goals in a game. He also has three shutouts in that time; the Red Bulls are 4-2-1 when he has started since his acquisition from the LA Galaxy. “Billy, these games he’s been playing, I think he hasn’t done one mistake so far,” Backe said. “He came up big today with three, four very, very important saves when they had free runners. He’s been great.” The meeting with Portland was the last match against Western Conference opposition for the Red Bulls this season, coming amidst a stretch of seven games where they will meet teams currently in playoff positions in five (two vs. Houston, two vs. Sporting KC, one vs. D.C. United). “We have high expectations of ourselves. We have high expectations of ourselves as individuals and as a team and that’s what makes us a good team,” said defender Heath Pearce. “We obviously finished the game with three points today which is the most important thing, but as individuals and as a group we didn’t perform up to the standards that we set.”

Sporting Kansas City beat Toronto FC 1-0 at BMO Field on the lone strike coming from Kei Kamara. Kei Kamara’s game-winning goal on Saturday moves him into sole possession of fifth place on Sporting KC’s all-time chart with nine. Kamara’s goal breaks a tie with Scott Sealy and Vitalis Takawira for sole possession of sixth place on the club’s all-time goal scoring chart with 29. Sporting Kansas City remains in sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference with 46 points. Sporting KC’s 46 points are second most in MLS and the team’s 1.84 points per game are also second-best behind San Jose. Sporting Kansas City is now tied with San Jose for the second most wins in the League with 14. The victory tally surpasses Sporting KC’s total (13) when they finished in first place in the Eastern Conference for the 2011 season and are tied for the most wins in regulation in team history with the 1997 and 2004 seasons. Fourteen wins is second in team history behind the 16-win Supporters Shield season in 2000. In 2000, Kansas City had 57 points and if Sporting KC continues to average 1.84 points per game, they would finish the 2012 season with 63 points. Sporting Kansas City won on the road for the seventh time in 2012, the most away victories in regulation in club history. To date, Sporting Kansas City has won at D.C. United, Chivas USA, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact, Columbus Crew, New England Revolution and Toronto FC in 2012. Of the 31 goals scored by Sporting KC this season, Kamara’s goal was the team’s first from outside the penalty area. The goal was only the second goal that Toronto FC has allowed from outside the penalty area in 2012.

With three shots on goal, Kamara moved past Takawira for sixth most in club history with 103. Graham Zusi’s game-winning assist on Saturday moves him into sole possession of fifth place on Sporting Kansas City’s all-time chart with nine. Zusi’s assist is his fifth game-winning assist in 2012, most in MLS this season. The assist was the 19th in Zusi’s KC and MLS career, moving him into tenth on Sporting KC’s all-time chart.

Sporting KC leads New York by two points atop the Eastern Conference and the teams will meet on Sunday for the first of three times in the final two months of the season. Sporting KC boasts the most wins (14) and best goal differential (+9) amongst all teams in the East. Sporting Kansas City’s 1.84 points per game average is the best in club history, ahead of the team’s 2000 Supporters Shield and MLS Cup season (1.78). The all-time series between Sporting Kansas City and the New York Red Bulls — both charter members of Major League Soccer — is deadlocked at 17-17-9. New York (Red Bull Arena) and Sporting KC (LIVESTRONG Sporting Park) play in two of the best stadiums in Major League Soccer. Sporting KC has sold out 11 of the team’s 12 regular season matches this season (average attendance 19,382), while New York has one regular season capacity crowd (average attendance 17,664) to date. Sporting Kansas City’s 14 victories in 2012 are the most since the team’s 2004 season when the club boasted the best regular season record in MLS and advanced to MLS Cup. Graham Zusi is tied with Landon Donovan for the League lead with 11 assists this season, and leads all MLS players with five game-winning assists in 2012. Zusi is one of five MLS players with seven or more assists in both 2011 and 2012. The others are 2011 MVP finalists Mauro Rosales, Dwayne De Rosario and Brad Davis, as well as David Beckham. Zusi’s next game-winning assist will see him set the club record for most in a single-season in club history with six. He would become just the second player in the last 10 years to record six or more game-winning assists, along with David Beckham (7 in 2011). With a game-winning goal against D.C. United and gamewinning assist against Toronto FC this month, Zusi has now played a part in eight of the team’s 14 game-winning goals this season. That is tied with Chris Wondolowski for the most joint game-winning goals and assists in MLS this season. Sporting Kansas City has allowed 22 goals in 25 matches for a 0.88 goals against average, the best defensive mark in MLS. Sporting Kansas City is 22-2-5 all-time with the backline of Chance Myers, Seth Sinovic, Matt Besler and Aurelien Collin starting in defense in all competition. Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen is the only Sporting KC player to have played every minute of the 2012 MLS regular season. Nielsen’s 0.88 goals against average is currently the best single-season mark in club history, leading Tony Meola’s historic 2000 season (0.92), in which he won MLS MVP and Goalkeeper of the Year. Nielsen’s 1.07 goals against average in the regular season is the second-best mark for an MLS goalkeeper all-time amongst keepers with a minimum of 4,000 minutes played. Nielsen leads all MLS goalkeepers with 14 wins and 11 shutouts in 2012. Nielsen’s 28 shutouts are the second most in MLS since 2010, trailing only Nick Rimando. Sporting Kansas City leads MLS with 404 shots, while allowing the fewest shots against (251). The club has led MLS in shots in five of the past seven seasons, finishing first in shots in 2006 (408), 2007 (420), 2010 (393) and 2011 (488). Kansas City were also League leaders in shots in 2002 and the inaugural 1996 campaign, and lead MLS in alltime shots taken with 7,053. Kei Kamara leads MLS with 96 shots and 39 shots on goal in 2012. Kamara is one of only three players in MLS with nine or more goals in each of the last three seasons, along with Alvaro Saborio and Chris Wondolowski.


Sporting Kansas City Game Notes | August 26th, 2012 vs New York Red Bulls| www.SportingKC.com

Sporting Kansas City News, Notes and headlines RESULTS | Sporting Kansas City currently sits in first place of the Eastern Conference with a record of 14-7-4 (46 points). The team had a historic start to 2012, garnering seven straight wins to begin the season. However, Kansas City experienced a slight decrease in their momentum losing three games in a row before earning a draw against Western Conference foe Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The momentum was back in Kansas City’s favor as the team won two Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup games against Orlando City SC and Colorado Rapids and added two MLS victories against the San Jose Earthquakes and Toronto FC. Sporting KC then went on the road and earned a tie at CenturyLink Field against Western Conference foe Seattle Sounders. Sporting KC experienced a second short slump in MLS play, suffering a 4-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park followed by a 1-0 loss to rival Chicago Fire at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. However, in between the two MLS matches, Sporting Kansas City hosted the Dayton Dutch Lions in Open Cup competition, in which they earned a 3-0 victory to send them to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup semi-finals.

After two overtime periods the match was still tied and headed to a best-of-five shootout. Sporting KC, shooting first, began with Kamara’s second successful attempt of the night. The Sounders would match it with a make of their own through Brad Evans’ shot to his left. Gspurning gave his team the advantage with a stop on Espinoza and Seattle momentarily led following Marc Burch’s blast down the middle. Besler pulled Sporting KC back level with a shot off the underside of the crossbar and into the back of the net. Alonso and Zusi both sent their shots over the crossbar in back-to-back attempts, and Nielsen made a superb save to his left to deny Christian Tiffert to send it to the fifth and final penalty kick with it all to be decided. Nagamura’s initial attempt was saved by Gspurning, but he was ruled to have come off his line early and the Brazilian calmly converted the ensuing second chance to his left to put Sporting KC ahead in dramatic fashion.

Sporting Kansas City got back on track in MLS competition in July when they beat Montreal 3-1 at Saputo Stadium followed by 0-0 home draw with the Houston Dynamo. Sporting KC then went on the road earning a 2-0 victory over the Columbus Crew moving them back up the standings and into sole possession of first place among Eastern Conference rivals before dropping a 2-1 decision against Houston in their first ever match at BBVA Compass Stadium. Sporting Kansas City returned back to LSP to face the New England Revolution in the first of four consecutive home matches in all-competition. The match resulted in a scoreless draw. Sporting KC then fell to Montpellier Herault SC 3-0 in their first of two international friendlies before losing to Eastern Conference foe Columbus 2-1 despite outshooting the Crew 25-12. Sporting Kansas City then went on to draw 1-1 with EPL side Stoke City FC with a late equalizer in second half stoppage time. After the friendly, Sporting KC earned the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title after defeating the Seattle Sounders FC in a shootout at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. In their two most recent MLS matches, Sporting Kansas City hosted D.C. United and earned a 2-1 victory at LSP followed by a 1-0 road win over Toronto FC at BMO Field. LAMAR HUNT U.S. OPEN CUP CHAMPIONS | Sporting Kansas City was crowned the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Champions for the first time since 2004 after beating the Seattle Sounders FC at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park 3-2 in penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw in regulation. Sporting KC took the lead on a Kei Kamara penalty kick in the 84th minute after a hand ball by Zach Scott. The goal marked Kamara’s second goal in U.S. Open Cup competition since joining Kansas City. Just two minutes later, Seattle’s Scott got a bit of redemption when he notched the equalizer off a free kick from Rosales.

Johnson walked to the spot with LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in a frenzy, needing to score to keep Seattle alive. Back in Kansas City for the first time since he played with the then-Wizards in 2007, Johnson’s shot sailed over the crossbar and brought an end to the shootout with Seattle’s third straight miss from the mark. Prior to the shootout loss, the Sounders had won three straight U.S. Open Cups, and had not been bested in the competition since August 12, 2008, when they were still a United Soccer League franchise. WHEN THEY LAST MET | Sporting Kansas City last faced the New York Red Bulls at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in front of a sellout crowd on October 15, 2011 in their last regular season home game of the 2011 season. Sporting Kansas City was able to secure a playoff berth with their 2-0 win over New York. Thierry Henry was shown a straight red card in the 28th minute for violent conduct. Teal Bunbury and C.J. Sapong both scored second half goals to help notch the victory. Sporting Kansas City outshot New York by a 24-6 margin. The first goal came in the 57th minute from a Graham Zusi corner kick. The ball was poorly cleared and fell to Julio Cesar who headed it back towards New York’s goal. Teal Bunbury was able to get on the end of Cesar’s pass and hit a right-footed volley past New York goalkeeper Frank Rost to put Sporting KC in the lead. The next goal came in the 74th minute, also from a Zusi corner kick. This time it was Sporting Kansas City defender Matt Besler who was able to keep the play alive as he directed a header towards goal. Sapong, positioned in front of the New York net with his back to goal was able to turn and sneak a right-footed insurance goal past Rost. Sporting Kansas City was able to close out the game and earn a 2-0 result. Sunday’s meeting between the two clubs marks the first of three meetings in 2012, and sole meeting at home during the 2012 regular season. The two away matchups will be on September 19th and October 20th at Red Bull Arena.

It’s a battle for the top of the Eastern Conference when the Red Bulls try to surpass conference-leading Sporting Kansas City as the teams play their first of three matches this season on Sunday at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. The Red Bulls improved to 13-7-5 with 44 points with a come-from-behind 32 victory over Portland last Sunday. New York fell behind by two goals before rallying with tallies from Kenny Cooper, Tim Cahill and Heath Pearce. Sporting has won its last three matches, and enters the game with a 14-7-4 record. The teams meet twice more at Red Bull Arena on Sept. 19 and Oct. 20.


NEW YORK RED BULLS AT SPORTING KANSAS CITY– AUGUST 26, 2012 – 9:00 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD BATTLE FOR FIRST IN EAST BETWEEN RED BULLS, SPORTING KC ON SUNDAY After a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday, the New York Red Bulls hit the road in a potential battle for first place in the Eastern Conference when they face Sporting Kansas City at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 9:00 PM ET (TV: ESPN2, ESPN Deportes; Radio: 93.1 FM). Despite falling behind by two goals, the Red Bulls rallied on Sunday in Harrison and defeated Portland by a 3-2 score. Substitute Kenny Cooper and Tim Cahill – whose goal was his first as a Red Bull – scored to even the match heading into halftime. Heath Pearce’s second goal of the season in the 83rd minute completed the comeback for the Red Bulls, who stayed unbeaten at home in 2012 with the victory. The win propelled New York to 13-7-5, with 44 points on the season. Entering Sunday’s match, New York trails Sporting KC (14-7-4, 46 points) by just two points. Sporting Kansas City has won its last three matches and picked up its 14th victory of the season on Saturday with a 1-0 decision over Toronto FC. The match pits strength against strength, as the Red Bulls enter the week as the East’s leading scoring team with 43 goals, while Sporting KC is MLS’ best defensive side, having conceded just 22 goals in 25 matches. In 12 home matches, Sporting has allowed just eight goals. Sunday’s match is the first of three late season meetings between the two sides in 2012. Sporting makes its two visits to Red Bull Arena on Wednesday, Sept. 19, and on Saturday, Oct. 20 in their penultimate match of the season. In two meetings last year, both teams held serve on their home ground; the Red Bulls took a 1-0 decision on April 30, while Sporting returned the favor on Oct. 15, shutting out the Red Bulls, 2-0. All-time New York is 17-17-9 in 43 matches against the Kansas City franchise. RED BULLS/SPORTING KANSAS CITY CONNECTIONS Sporting Kansas City head coach Peter Vermes, a native of Willingboro, NJ, played for New York in the club’s inaugural 1996 season, starting 30 matches and notching one goal and one assist. RED BULLS EXACT REVENGE, UPEND HOUSTON 2-0 The New York Red Bulls erased a two-goal deficit for a come-from-behind 32 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night at Red Bull Arena. Heath Pearce’s tally off a header in the 83rd minute proved to be the game-winner for New York, which also got goals from leading scorer Kenny Cooper and midfielder Tim Cahill. Bright Dike and Darlington Nagbe scored to stake Portland to an early lead, but the second place Red Bulls were able to notch their fourth comeback win of the season and improved to 44 points (13-7-5), just two points shy of leader Sporting Kansas City. New York also remained unbeaten at Red Bull Arena this year, extending its home record to 9-0-3. It took just eight minutes for the game to find its first goal, with the visitors breaking the deadlock. Sal Zizzo led Portland (5-13-6, 21 pts.) on the counterattack down the right flank and brought the ball into the penalty area. Zizzo squared the ball across to Dike, who beat goalkeeper Bill Gaudette with a first time right-footed shot. The Timbers doubled their advantage on Nagbe’s fifth goal of the season as Portland once again hit New York on a counter. Portland went the other way after Roy Miller lost possession, with Franck Songo’o leading the charge on the left side. Songo’o cut across the top of the box and fed the ball to Zizzo, who slid a pass behind the New York defense to Nagbe. From the right side, Nagbe hit the ball across the goalmouth, sneaking it inside the far post. Needing an injection of offense, coach Hans Backe went to his bench early and brought on Cooper in the 36th minute. Just seven minutes after he took the pitch, Cooper notched his team-leading 14th goal of the season to bring New York back to within one. Markus Holgersson dribbled forward and picked out Dax McCarty near the 18-yard line and McCarty turned to his right and sent a short through ball into the path of Jan Gunnar Solli. Solli one-timed a right

footed cross into the center of the area, and Cooper rose and nodded the ball inside the far left post. Two minutes later, the Red Bulls were back on level terms when Cahill found the back of the net for the first time since coming to MLS. After receiving a pass from Sebastien Le Toux and with his back to the net, the Australian tapped the ball to McCarty, who fired it on goal. The ball was blocked by a Portland defender in the box and ricocheted back out to Cahill, who struck the ball in from outside the box with his left foot. In the 52nd minute, New York had back-to-back chances but both were thwarted by Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. From the left flank, Cahill directed a looping ball into the box that met the head of Thierry Henry, but Ricketts did well to keep it out. The rebound fell to Le Toux and he was stopped at point-blank range by Ricketts. Nine minutes later, it was Gaudette’s turn, as the New York keeper parried away a chance from Nagbe that was taken from the top of the box. In the 69th minute, Gaudette came up with another big save, stopping Diego Chara on a breakaway chance. New York took the lead for good with seven minutes to go. Henry took a corner kick from the left flag, and the ball sailed all the way to Cooper at the far edge of the box. Cooper laid the ball off to Solli, who swung a cross back into the middle of the area. Pearce rose above his defender and headed the ball downwards and into the net for his second goal of the season. CAHILL’S FIRST It took just three matches for the Red Bulls’ newest designated player, Australian International Tim Cahill, to find the back of the net. Cahill helped the Red Bulls come back from a two goal deficit and defeat the Portland Timbers on Sunday, scoring in the 45th minute to get the Red Bulls back on level terms entering halftime. In his three matches since coming to the Red Bulls after a distinguished career in England with Millwall and Everton, Cahill has also added two assists. SEEKING TEAM BEST With a win on Sunday against Kansas City, the Red Bulls would set a franchise record for points through 26 matches of a season, surpassing the 2000 and 2010 squads, who had 44 points through 26 games. A victory would also tie the 2012 team with the 1998 and 2000 sides with 14 wins in 26 tries. Points through 26 matches Season Wins Losses NY 2000 14 10 13 8 NY 2010

BIG COMEBACK New York’s 3-2 win over Portland Sunday was the first time that the club has come back from a two-goal deficit in nearly eight years. The last match it occurred was on Sept. 11, 2004 in a 3-2 win over the New England Revolution at Giants Stadium. New York has come back from a two-goal deficit six times in its history, including last Sunday’s match. SUPER COOPER Red Bulls forward Kenny Cooper came off the bench on Sunday and got the Red Bulls on the board with a 42nd minute goal as New York defeated Portland, 3-2, erasing a two goal deficit. The goal was Cooper’s team-leading 14th of the season, and second of the year off the bench. Cooper remained second in the league in goals this year with Real Salt Lake’s Alvaro Saborio, as both trail San Jose striker Chris Wondolowski who has 18. Cooper also notched his second assist of the season on Sunday, setting up Heath Pearce’s game winner. SOLLI’S TWO HELPERS Red Bulls midfielder/defender Jan Gunnar Solli notched his third and fourth assists of the season on Sunday, setting up two of the Red Bulls’ three goals in


NEW YORK RED BULLS AT SPORTING KANSAS CITY– AUGUST 26, 2012 – 9:00 PM ET

their 3-2 comeback win over Portland on Sunday. Solli helped New York get on the board in the first half when he delivered the cross that led to Kenny Cooper’s 14th goal of the season, and Solli also crossed in the ball for Heath Pearce’s 83rd minute winner. It was the Norwegian’s third multi-assist game since joining the Red Bulls last season; he also had two assists on April 21, 2011 at D.C. United and on July 6, 2011 vs. Toronto FC. For his MLS career, Solli has 11 assists and three goals in 48 matches in a New York shirt. COMEBACK KIDS New York’s 3-2 victory over Portland on Sunday was the club’s fourth comeback win of the season.

Overall, New York is 4-7-3 this season when they concede the first goal. Conversely, the club is 9-0-2 when scoring first in 2012, and 330-12 under Hans Backe since he became coach in 2010. HOME SWEET HOME The Red Bulls remain one of two teams in MLS this season that are unbeaten at home. New York has posted a 9-0-3 record at Red Bull Arena; the Houston Dynamo is the league’s other home unbeaten side at 8-0-4. CAHILL NOTCHES FIRST TWO ASSISTS In just his second MLS match and first MLS home appearance, Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill registered his first two assists in a New York shirt, setting up both goals in the club’s shutout victory over the Houston Dynamo on Aug. 10. In the 61st minute, Cahill found Markus Holgersson unmarked in the box for an easy tap in with a well-placed headed pass for what ended up being the game winner. In second half stoppage time, Cahill helped spring the Red Bulls’ counter attack that was finished by Jan Gunnar Solli, ensuring the Red Bulls took all three points.
