Reserves also lose to Philly, 2:1
April 10, 2011 (Official Game Summary)

Philadelphia New York
04.10.11 · Reserve

After a heated battle at PPL Park Saturday night, the Philadelphia Union and New York Red Bulls met again Sunday morning to kick off play in the re-launched MLS Reserve League. Philadelphia came away victorious, edging New York 2-1 at Chester Park. John Rooney accounted for the Red Bulls tally, while Jack McInerney and Chris Agorsor were the goal scorers for the Union.

The Union broke open the scoring after the break. In the 50th minute, Roger Torres sent a cross in from the right corner to McInerney, who headed near post from six yards out past a diving Horwath for a 1-0 lead.

New York didn't wait long to equalize. Two minutes later, Mehdi Ballouchy sent a free kick low to Marcos Paullo, who found a wide-open Rooney at the top of the area. Rooney fired low and hard to the far post, beating a frozen Thorne Holder to level the match at one goal apiece.

It appeared as though New York took the lead midway through the second half. Paullo finished a cross from Rooney, but the referee came charging in to waive off the goal due to an offside call.

In the 81st minute, the Union would regain the lead. Substitute Cristian Hernandez sent McInerney through into space all alone within New York's area. The 18-year-old's initial attempt was blocked on the goal line, but Agorsor was there to tap home the rebound for a 2-1 lead.
