Overall Game Assessment
This was not a great performance from the Red Bulls. They were out of sorts most of the game. They had very little on the attack and defensively they struggled to contain FC Cincinnati. Robles had a great game in goal and single-handedly kept the Red Bulls in this game tonight. If not for a major defensive mistake by a Cincy defender that spurred a Kaku breakaway, the Red Bulls did not deserve the win today.

This was a miserable offensive performance from the Red Bulls. No real threats. They got lucky on a Cincinnati defensive mistake to set up Kaku's goal.

This was a bend, don't break game. Well Cincinnati had their chances, but Robles was really on today!
