Robert Taylor and Ariel Lassiter scored as Inter Miami CF topped the visiting New York Red Bulls 2-0 Sunday evening in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
For the Red Bulls (5-3-5, 20 points), the loss snaps an eight-game unbeaten run across all contests. It’s the first time since April 2 that the Red Bulls were held scoreless in a defeat.
Dribbling the ball along the left wing after receiving a feed from Bryce Duke in the 29th minute, Lassiter danced around a pair of Red Bulls defenders and sliced toward the middle of the box, where he unleashed a right-footed shot that beat a sliding defender and a diving goalkeeper. The goal was Lassiter’s first of the season, and the fifth of his MLS career.
