Romero “Kaku” Gamarra scored in the sixth minute, Daniel Royer got his ninth goal on a penalty kick, and the New York Red Bulls beat D.C. United 2-1 on Wednesday night in the Atlantic Cup.

New York (12-10-5) has a nine-game undefeated streak in the series. D.C. United (10-9-9) hasn’t won in the series since May 13, 2016.

Kaku took advantage of a poor clearance and sent it into the back of the net for an early 1-0 lead. The Red Bulls capped the scoring in the 59th, four minutes after D.C. United tied it, when Royer sent goalkeeper Bill Hamid the wrong way.

Ola Kamara, in his first start for D.C. United, scored on a curling shot from the corner of the 18-yard box.

Both teams were reduced to 10 men in the first half. Following a video review, D.C. United star Wayne Rooney was given a straight red card in the 24th minute for elevated contact with Cristian Cásseres Jr. New York defender Amro Tarek was sent off in first-half stoppage time after receiving his second yellow card.
