An old foe returned to Red Bull Arena Saturday night and proved to be a thorn in the side of the New York Red Bulls.
Jonathan Lewis, formerly of New York City FC, was back in the New York area as a member of the Colorado Rapids and scored both goals in the road team’s 2-0 win. Lewis scored in the 14th minute and 87th minute.
The loss was the second straight for the Red Bulls following its 2-1 defeat to NYCFC the week prior.
Luis Robles made four saves for New York, with several big stops in the second half that kept the match a one-goal game.
Dropping three points to Colorado at home comes at a bad time for New York, which now sits in fifth place with 41 points, just four points ahead of eighth-place Montreal Impact.
The Red Bulls have five matches remaining on the season, three of which are away from home. Up next is a west coast trip that will see New York face the Seattle Sounders on September 15 and Portland Timbers three days later.
