Down 1-0 in the second half and in danger of dropping to 1-7 to start the year, the New York Red Bulls stormed back for a very big win against Orlando City.

The Red Bulls found themselves down early when in the third minute Cyle Larin put Orlando City ahead 1-0. It would stay that way all the way until the 65th minute when Mike Grella leveled the score for the Red Bulls.

Just four minutes later, in the 69th minute, Grella would turn from the scorer into the facilitator when he connected a cross with Bradley Wright-Phillips who notched his first goal of the season for the Red Bulls, giving them the lead.

Wright-Phillips would add a second just six minutes later. It certainly looked like the Red Bulls were going to break out of their slump and cruise to a multi-goal win. However, less than 10 minutes later, the Red Bulls scored an own goal to make it 3-2, leading to a tense finale to the match that they managed to squeak out of, earning their second victory of the season.

The Red Bulls will try to make it two straight on Friday night when they take on FC Dallas at Red Bull Arena. Tickets are available for less than $20, with rates for hotels in Newark for as low as $69. You can also find flights to Newark airport from Hipmunk for the dates around the match.
