Picault scores, Blake makes big saves in Union's 2-1 victory

Harrison scored his seventh goal of the season to give NYCFC the lead in the 34th minute.

While the Red Bulls only got their first shot on net in the 79th minute, disgusted South Ward supporters saw enough when midfielder Alex Muyl received a yellow card for embellishment in the NYCFC box in the 77th minute.

After having failed to record a single point in four previous visits to Red Bull Arena, New York City FC finally tasted victory on the road against its cross-river rival on Saturday, sending a very clear message that the once-lopsided derby has a new team in charge.

NYCFC controlled most of the game, and the hosts only managed to put one shot on target.

"When you look at all the games that we played against the Red Bulls previously, they always wanted it more than us", NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira said on Saturday.

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Fabrice "Fafa" Picault scored on a dazzling volley and Andre Blake made two spectacular second-half saves in Philadelphia's victory over D.C. United.

Picault took a cross from Alejandro Bedoya and sent in a left-footed shot inside the left-hand post past diving goalkeeper Bill Hamid in the 31st minute.

And Blake came up huge to deny Neagle again in stoppage time to preserve the victory.

United almost had to play with 10 men in the 74th when Luciano Acosta was initially given a red card, which was then rescinded.

Josef Martinez scored the only goal as Atlanta United beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0.

In the 70th minute, Union's Oguchi Onyewu was called for a handball after the ball went off his shoulder in the penalty box.
