Recap: New York Red Bulls II Suffer Worst Defeat Ever Against Hartford 7-0

Juan Carlos Obregon and Preston Tabor Etaka scored two goals. Danny Barrera bagged four assists as Hartford Athletic remained unbeaten and thoroughly out-classed a stacked New York Red Bulls II side by an embarrassing final score of 7-0.

Coach John Wolyneic received reinforcements with seven players from the Red Bulls' first team in the lineup for tonight's match to remain match-fit during the FIFA International Break. Unfortunately for him and the team, they wouldn't even be a factor during the match.

The action was fast and furious within the first few minutes after kickoff. Hartford Athletic nearly got on the scoreboard early as Juan Carlos Obregon's chance hit the post after receiving a corner kick from Danny Barrera in the 10th minute. 

The New York Red Bulls II also had a chance to get on the scoreboard, but Omir Fernandez's header glanced off the crossbar. The Athletic immediately responded on the break. This time, Juan Carlos Obregon Jr. would not be denied, scoring his first goal of the season, after taking a great pass from Gabriel Torres, who started the break in the 15th minute to put the hosts in the lead.

New York Red Bulls II then kept pressing for the equalizer, but in the 36th minute, Omir Fernandez's chance would be first blocked by Hartford goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell. Wikelman Carmona took the loose rebound but skied the ball shortly afterward. 

Hartford doubled their lead when Sebastian Elney haunted his former teammates by scoring his first goal of the season two minutes into stoppage time, putting the home side up by two. And then, less than a minute later, Juan Carlos Obregon scored once again, putting the hosts up by three, leaving John Wolyneic's side in a state of shock at the scoreline as the half came to a close. 

Just after kickoff, Gabriel Torres attacked the New York defense in the second half, darting down the pitch and passing the ball over to a wide-open Danny Berrera. He scored his fourth goal of the season, curing his shot inside the left post in the 50th minute, effectively making the match a one-sided rout.

The Athletic would then extend the misery for the visitors in the 59th minute when Conor McGlynn chipped a long-distance goal from midfield, catching New York Red Bulls II goalkeeper Anthony Marcucci off his line, the ball nestling in the back of the net for a five-goal lead. 

In the 65th minute, the misery would continue, with Preston Tabort Etaka taking a free-kick from Danny Barrera, shoots the ball right to Anthony Marcucci, who misplayed the ball, giving the home side a six-goal lead.

More misery in the 71st minute for the visitors, Preston Tabor Etaka scoring his second goal of the evening, hooking up with Danny Barrera with a cross in front of the net, to give the home side a seventh unanswered goal of the evening, and their fourth in the second half.

The match would finally settle down, but with the Red Bulls seemingly out of sorts and clearly out of answers. And by the time the final whistle was blown, the lopsided scoreline cemented one of the worst losses in the team's history.

Hartford Athletic: Jeff Caldwell, Gabriel Torres, Thomas Janjigian, Walid Yacoubou, Alejandro Lara, Arthur Rogers (Samuel Ashitey 68'), Conor McGlynn (59'), Youned Bousasi, Danny Barrera (c) (50')(Bradford Jamison '83), Juan Carlos Obregon Jr. (15', 45+3')(Preston Tabor Etaka 55' (65', 75')), Sebastian Elney (45+2')(Alfonso Villar '83)

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more

Ex-Red Bulls Coach Gerhard Struber Shares Thoughts on MLS and Salzburg

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
