Thierry Henry scores as Red Bulls blank D.C. United
Thierry Henry scored in his first start in a month, and defender Jamison Olave added a goal in the New York Red Bulls’ 2-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday night.
Henry, back at full strength after a knee injury, opened the scoring in the 29th minute, and Olave scored in the 36th to help New York (2-3-2) win for the first time in its last five tries at RFK Stadium dating to April 2011.
The teams played to scoreless draw March 16.
United dropped to 1-4-1. The Washington club has scored only two goals and been shutout four times. It has lost two straight at home after a 17-game unbeaten run.
On the opening goal, Dax McCarty created space, and found Henry outside the box. The Frenchman faked to his right, cut back left, came back to his right and slotted a perfect ball into the bottom right corner. United goalie Bill Hamid dove to his left but it was too late.
New York had four corner kicks in the first half, using the third to double the lead.
Taking a short corner, Juninho played the ball to Henry. Henry sent the ball right back to Juninho, who whipped in a shot that was redirected first by Brandon Barklage before Olave slotted it past Hamid into the back of the net. It was the defender’s third goal of the season and second in two games.
