The New York Red Bulls opened the 2016 preseason schedule with a 3-1 victory over the University of South Florida Thursday at the Omni Resort in ChampionsGate, FL. New York and USF played three, 30-minute periods under rainy conditions.

The New York Red Bulls controlled play in the first 30 minutes and had several scoring chances before breaking through to score the scrimmage's first goal. New York opened the scoring as Bradley Wright-Phillips scored the first goal of the preseason on a perfect pass from Mike Grella as he one-timed a shot past the USF goalkeeper.

Neither side scored during the second 30-minute period. New York head coach Jesse Marsch rolled out three different starting lineups for each period of play to open the preseason vs. the Bulls.

In the final 30 minutes of action, Manolo Sanchez scored the scrimmage's second goal on an assist by rookie Chris Thorsheim. Just minutes later, rookie homegrown forward Brandon Allen scored his first goal of the preseason as he scored from close range. MLS SuperDraft first round pick Justin Bilyeu assisted on the Allen goal.
