HARRISON, NJ - Adam Buska's goal in stoppage time gave the conference and league-leading New England Revolution their third straight win over the New York Red Bulls, coming from behind to defeat them, 3-2 at Red Bull Arena.

Still stinging after their 1-0 defeat at the hands of their bitter rivals, D.C. United on Sunday, the Red Bulls were looking for a much-improved performance in front of their supporters at Red Bull Arena on Saturday.

And right at kickoff, then did just that. As the Red Bulls got on the scoreboard in the 8th minute, Kyle Duncan brought the ball down the sideline who found Wiki Carmona open, and he let loose a blistering shot that beat New England goalkeeper Brad Knighton on his left side for his fort goal of the season.

The Revolution had two opportunities to level the match, the first one happened in the 22nd minute as Gustavo Bou's shot was blocked by Amro Tarek, but Adam Buska's follow-up shot hit the post, the other one happened just before halftime as Adam Buska's shot was denied by woodwork once again as the half came to a close.

But in the 60th minute, Gustavo Bou put the Revolution on the board as his blast cleared Carlos Coronel, glancing off the bottom of the bar. The Red Bulls would quickly answer just three minutes later as Fabio took a nice pass from Caden Clark, and tapped it in from close range. 

But the Revolution would not be denied, for in the 84th minute, Brandon Bye would bring the match level, scoring from a set-piece after Kyle Duncan was called from a handball, setting up a freekick previously.

Adam Buska who was denied twice by the woodwork in the first half would not be denied this time, his goal one minute in stoppage time put the visitors ahead for good, ending the Red Bulls home unbeaten streak, and giving them yet another frustrating loss, this time in front of their supporters.

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

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
