               === Wright-Phillips leads RBNY past 10-man FCD ===
 
 Frisco,  TX  (SportsNetwork.com) - Bradley  Wright-Phillips scored in the 71st
 minute  to  earn Red Bull New  York a 1-0 win  over 10-man FC Dallas at Toyota
 Stadium on Sunday.
 
 Dallas was reduced to 10 men just 10 minutes into the game as Je-Vaughn Watson
 was sent off for a high kick on New York's Tim Cahill.
 
 From  there, it was  always going to be difficult for Dallas to take something
 from  the  game, although  the hosts did  have a penalty  kick from Blas Perez
 saved in the second half before Wright-Phillips netted the winner.
 
 New  York has now  earned 10 of a possible 12 points from its last four games,
 while Dallas lost for the third time in four matches.
 
 The game took a dramatic turn in the opening 10 minutes when Watson received a
 straight  red card  for a kick to  the groin of Cahill, leaving Dallas with 80
 minutes to play a man down.
 
 Cahill went close in the first half with a free kick that missed the left post
 by  inches,  but Dallas  was handed  a golden opportunity  to take an unlikely
 lead.
 
 Danny  Garcia  got down the left  wing and into  the penalty area where he was
 brought down by Cahill.
 
 However,  Perez  stepped forward and  had his  effort saved by goalkeeper Luis
 Robles, paving the way for Wright-Phillips to put New York ahead.
 
 Dax McCarty played Thierry Henry into the area on the right and he squared the
 ball to Wright-Phillips for a simple finish and three points for New York.
