New York is Blue | NYCFC 2-1 Red Bulls, August 24
It’s the date on the calendar circled twice by soccer fans on both sides of the Hudson River and NYCFC came into the Yankee Stadium meeting with a big score to settle.
Just a few weeks after Red Bulls emerged victorious from a controversial clash in Harrison, City delivered their riposte, once again coming from behind to take all three points.
In terms of “Moments of the Season”, you can’t really beat a late backheel-megs winner from your top-scorer in a derby, can you?
Héber’s improvised finish from Anton Tinnerholm’s brilliant assist was a resounding winner of the Goal of the Season vote at the 2019 NYCFC Awards and gave his team the bragging rights from an unforgettable Hudson River Derby.
