New York Red Bulls U-18 (6) vs. FC Boston Bolts (1)

HANOVER, N.J. (April 16, 2016) – Brian Saramago scored five goals as the New York Red Bulls recorded their biggest home win against FC Boston Bolts, 6-1.

Saramago opened the scoring on the twenty-minute mark with a curling shot from distance. He wasted no time adding to his tally, scoring again in the 33rd minute, after an excellent through ball from Jared Gilbey.

The Red Bulls picked up where they left off in the second half with a well-worked team goal that was converted after a good spell of possession. The move finished with Sean Teixeria’s cross to Barry Sharifi who made no mistake with his finish.

Sharifi would turn provider moments later when his through ball played in the ever dangerous Saramago behind the Bolts defense for his hat trick. Saramago made a powerful run inside the Bolts penalty area and showed composure on the finish.

FC Boston Bolts scored on the 68th minute to deny Matthew Rosenberg the shutout who was making his first start of the season in the Red Bulls goal.

New York picked up their level to close out the game. Saramago scored from Jared Gilbey’s free kick on the 75th minute, followed by another good combination with Sharifi to score his fifth of the game and Red Bulls’ sixth.

“After playing to a scoreless draw the week before we made it a priority to take our chances this week and put the game to rest early,” Man of the Match Brian Saramago said. “It was nice to get on the scoresheet, but the most important thing was getting the three points. The team played great this week and hopefully we could carry this momentum into what will be a big game against a good Montreal side."

The next game for Red Bulls U-18 will be on the road against Montreal Impact on Sunday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m.

HANOVER, N.J. (April 16, 2016) – The New York Red Bulls U-14 came from behind twice and recorded a thrilling win against World Class, 4-2.

World Class took the lead in the 12th minute when a defensive turnover led to the early World Class goal. The Red Bulls could not find the equalizer and went into half-time trailing 1-0.

“At half-time we talked about playing quicker and competing on every play,” Man of the Match Danny Ramm said. “[World Class] did a good job in the first half of making it hard for us to establish a rhythm.”

Second half substitute Samory Powder sparked the Red Bulls to life with the first of his assists in the 62nd minute, when he played a ball over the top of the World Class defense as they were stepping out. Ramm then received the pass and then curled in a right-footed shot into the opposite corner of the goal.

However, the lead was short lived as another Red Bulls error led to World Class taking the lead in the 66th minute.

New York responded directly from the ensuing kickoff as the ball played over the top saw a Dylan Sullivan shot saved brilliantly and then fall to forward Scotty Taylor who finished from 12-yards-out. From this point on, the Red Bulls began to control the game and create numerous opportunities.

Defender Sean Ryan scored his first goal of the season and the game winner in the 76th minute, when a Dylan Sullivan shot was deflected into his path to tap home from close range.

Jonathan Ned sealed the victory with a header from a Powder corner kick in the 78th minute. Midfielder Conner Maurer could have added to the lead in the 79th minute, but the World Class goalkeeper tipped a shot wide just as he had done numerous times in the game.
