Teen Caden Clark leads Red Bulls to 1-0 win over Atlanta
ATLANTA (AP) — Teenager Caden Clark scored in his MLS debut, leading the New York Red Bulls a 1-0 victory over Atlanta United on Saturday night.
Clark, a 17-year-old who signed with the Red Bulls earlier Saturday following a trade with Minnesota United, scored in the 47th minute. A header-attempt deflected to Clark, who fired a right-footed shot from the center of the 18-yard box that beat goalie Brad Guzan.
The Red Bulls (7-8-2) had lost four of their last five matches. Atlanta (5-9-3) had its two-match win streak snapped.
Atlanta nearly forced an own goal late when a shot by Jake Mulraney deflected off of the Red Bulls’ Daniel Royer, and hit the crossbar.
