Yes, even we are getting sick of using the Red Bulls II logo upside on some of the team’s stories after losses.
But this has been a season from hell for the USL Championship side.
The team’s latest defeat came at the hands and feet of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, a 3-0 loss at MSU Soccer Park in Montclair, N.J. on Friday night.
Red Bulls II (6 points) dropped to an abysmal 1-13-3 while the Riverhounds (27) improved to 8-6-3.
Russell Cicerone scored on either side of halftime and Alex Dixon added a goal
Pittsburgh broke through in the 12th minute as Dixon opening the scoring. Dixon corralled a long ball from Kenardo Forbes and moved down the far side before firing high in the net for a 1-0 lead.
The visitors doubled their advantage in the 19th minute, as Forbes sprung Cicerone on a breakaway. Cicerone stutter-stepped but his first shot was parried away by goalkeeper AJ Marcucci. The rebound fell right to Cicerone, who deposited the shot for his sixth goal of the season.
Cicerone struck for his second in the 67th minute, as he took a long pass from Daniel Rovira and ripped an attempt into the top of the goal for his team-leading seventh goal.
Goalkeeper Derrek Chan recorded four saves in the second half after entering as a halftime sub.
New York will travel to face Louisville City FC on Saturday, July 9 at 8 p.m.
