New York Red Bulls II broke a three-game losing streak to take a 3-2 victory against the Charleston Battery on Wednesday night at Patriots Point.

The visitors that took the lead in the 14th minute when Serge Ngoma stole possession near the halfway line and broke toward the penalty area before rounding Charleston goalkeeper Joe Kuzminsky to his right and finishing from a narrow angle into the open net. Six minutes later, Red Bulls II upped the pressure on their hosts as a cross from the right by Mandela Egbo reached Jake LaCava in the left side of the penalty area, where he took a shot that deflected home off a defender for a two-goal lead.

The Battery pulled back into the game 11 minutes before halftime. A free kick from the right deflected off a defender in a challenge at the near post and caromed kindly for Joel Bunting, who headed home from inside the six-yard area.

New York restored its two-goal lead less than two minutes into the second half. Another cross from the right by Egbo found Jeremy Rafanello for a header at the top of the six-yard area that Kusminsky couldn't keep out.

The hosts pulled a goal back with 10 minutes to go as a free kick from the left by Fahling was met by a diving header by Leland Archer, whose finish went off the underside of the crossbar and just crossed the line.
