Red Bulls II season from hell continued in El Paso, Texas on Saturday night.

The team’s woes were never more apparent in its 5-0 loss at the El Paso Locomotive at Southwest University Park.

Former Cosmos Eric Calvillo scored twice for El Paso (8-6-4, 28 points) in the USL Championship match while NYRBII (6) fell to 1-12-3.

El Paso opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Following a corner kick and shot a loose ball found Andrew Fox. He played it to Christiano François, who sent in a shot.

The home side doubled its lead in the 12th minute, as Aaron Gómez led a counterattack and had his centering pass shot put in by Calvillo.

Locomotive added another in the 19th minute on a strike from Nicholas Hinds following a feed from Sebastián Velásquez.

El Paso added one more before the half as Calvillo scored his second on a centering pass from Gómez.

Gómez scored in the 74th minute, following a pass from Luis Solignac from the near edge of the box.

Red Bulls Academy midfielder Nathan Worth made his professional debut in the match, playing the first half. At 15 years and 120 days old, he became the second-youngest player in Red Bulls II history to make their professional debut, trailing only Serge Ngoma (15 years, 83 days old). He is the youngest player to appear in a match this season in USL Championship.

Worth is the youngest player in club history to start in their professional debut for the club. The midfielder became the first Red Bulls Academy player to start in their professional debut for New York since Sam Joseph on Aug. 10, 2021, against the Charlotte Independence.

Red Bulls II will return home to face Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Friday, July 1 at 7 p.m.
