NY Red Bulls vs. LA Galaxy

Holy crap we won! 2-0 baby! After the way RBNY has been playing I didn’t think we would beat the best team in the league, let alone a shutout! Way to go Red Bulls! Kicking it up a notch when needed to ensure we get to the playoffs. We’re in the 9th spot now and only 2 points away from being out of the wild card and into a guaranteed playoff spot. Nice.
