The New York Red Bulls fell to Seattle Sounders FC, 3-1 in Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The loss is New York's first of the 2017 MLS regular season. The setback snapped a franchise-record 18-game unbeaten streak in league play. The streak began on July 3, 2016 with a win over rival New York City FC. Bradley Wright-Phillips got New York's goal, the 70th of his MLS career. Wright-Phillips headed home a cross from Sal Zizzo in the 57th minute to tie the game at one. Fredrik Gulbrandsen made his first MLS start just over a week after joining the team. Gulbrandsen was in the starting XI after making his MLS debut last week as a late sub. The forward is with New York on loan from FC Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Sacha Kljestan departed for San Jose directly after the game to join up with the U.S. Men's National Team. Kljestan will be with the U.S. for a pair of World Cup Qualifiers on March 24 and 28. New York is 13-14-8 all-time in the month of March. New York has scored 45 goals in March and allowed 51. New York is 4-5-3 all-time against Seattle, and 1-4-1 at CenturyLink. The Red Bulls return home to host Real Salt Lake next Saturday, March 25 for a 4 p.m. kick, with coverage on UniMas and Red Bulls Radio.
