In the first New York Derby of the year in the Bundesliga, Gio Reyna’s team got the upper leg over Tyler Adams’ side.

The final score of the match in Leipzig, Germany was 3-1 in favor of Borussia Dortmund over RB Leipzig.

Reyna, 18, hails from Bedford, N.Y., while Adams, 21 grew up in Wappingers Falls, N.Y. Those towns are 30.4 miles apart. They also are U.S. men’s national team teammates.

The win lifted fourth-place Dortmund (28 points) to a 9-5-1 record and denied second-place Leipzig (9-2-4, 31) from taking over the league lead after Bayern Munich (10-2-3, 33) dropped a 3-2 decision to Borussia Moenchengladbach Friday.

And to make this confrontation just a little more juicy, the players were on opposite sides of the Hudson River Derby across the Atlantic Ocean. Reyna came through the New York City FC Academy while Adams played with the Red Bulls before his transfer to RB Leipzig.

This confrontation came a week after last Sunday’s Pennsylvania Derby in the English Premier League as Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic met Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen. ManCity prevailed, 3-1.

Reyna did not write his name on the scoresheet, but had a role in Dortmund’s second goal in the 71st minute. While on the left side of the penalty area, Reyna decided against moving the ball forward. Instead, he backheeled a pass to Jadon Sancho, who sent a cross to the far post to Erling Haaland. Haaland headed the ball home for the first of his two goals.
