Metro loses preseason game to RSL, 1:0
January 31, 2017 (Official Game Summary)
The New York Red Bulls fell to Real Salt Lake, 1-0, on Tuesday afternoon in a preseason match at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson.
The goal came in the 81st minute, with Jordan Allen heading home a cross from the wing.
The Red Bulls started with nine of the same players that played in Friday's match against Portland. The two changes came at the outside back position, with Justin Bilyeu starting in place of Kemar Lawrence, and Sal Zizzo getting the nod in place of 2017 MLS SuperDraft pick Ethan Kutler.
Unlike Friday night, the teams played two 45-minute halves. Homegrown goalkeeper Evan Louro made his preseason debut in the match, playing the final 30 minutes.
Newly signed center back Hassan Ndam entered the match in the 60th minute. Hassan arrived at Red Bulls camp late last night after New York completed his transfer from Cameroonian club Rainbow FC.
