D.C. United Vs. New York Red Bulls Score Update: Black-And-Red Trail 2-1 At The Half

D.C. United midfielder Chris Pontius scored the fastest goal in MLS history against the New York Red Bulls at a sold out Red Bull Arena in a record time of 28 seconds. It looked to be a catalyst to getting the match off on the right foot for the Black-and-Red but New York would go on to control the match for much of the first half on Sunday night and the Red Bulls would go into halftime with a 2-1 lead.

After Pontius' goal, DCU would only get two more attempts on goal to the Red Bulls 12 attempts. New York has controlled 63.2 percent of the possessions thus far to the United's 36.8 percent.

Red Bull midfielder Brandon Barklage has led New York's attack in the first half, scoring two goals, one at the 27th minute and the other coming in the 47th minute of play.
