White scores 1st MLS goal, Red Bulls move into 1st place
New York (17-6-4) extended its undefeated streak to six games — with a fourth win during that stretch. The Red Bulls moved one point ahead of longtime Supporters’ Shield leader Atlanta United with seven games remaining. Houston (7-12-7) is winless in its last nine matches — one away from tying a club record.
White, the No. 16 selection in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft, scored in the 55th minute on an easy tap-in. Luis Robles recorded his 59th career shutout.
New York, which ended a stretch of five games in 15 days, has won eight of the past 11 games in the series.
