New, 15 comments

New York continued their recent hot streak as they added another victory at home against Toronto FC.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Red Bulls continued their ascent up the Major League Soccer standings with a dominant 3-0 victory over the visiting Toronto FC. Toronto were unable to get past the strong offensive pressure set by the Red Bulls as they clogged up the midfield and isolated Sebastian Giovinco. The loss drops Toronto below .500 at 9-10-4 on the season.

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his 11th of the season to open the scoring for the New York Red Bulls, after Mike Grella took advantage of shambolic defending from Toronto. Anthony Wallace scored from long distance to solidify the New York win. Luis Robles was strong in goal to keep the clean sheet for New York.

Further analysis of this match will be up at a later time. Until then, hey at least Toronto FC II won so the future is bright right?
