WASHINGTON (AP) - Alvaro Saborio and Patrick Nyarko scored first-half goals and D.C. United beat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 on Friday night in the Atlantic Cup.

D.C. United (3-4-4) rebounded after falling to New York City FC at home on Sunday. The Red Bulls (3-7-1) had their four-game undefeated streak halted.

Marcelo Sarvas got behind the defense to run to a through ball and played it in front of goal to an open Saborio for the lead in the 20th minute.

After a New York turnover in its own end, Saborio played it ahead to Lamar Neagle at the outside of the 18-yard box. Neagle waited for help and found Nyarko in stride for a 2-0 lead in the 43rd.

New York goalkeeper Luis Robles stretched to get a hand on Julian Buescher’s open shot in the 82nd.
