Bunbury's goal lifts New England past New York 2-1

FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) Teal Bunbury scored his eighth goal of the season at the 78th minute off Cristian Penilla's cross to send New England past New York for a 2-1 win on Saturday.

Penilla beat his defender to the left of the goal mouth and in tight quarters and found Bunbury from close range who punched it in. Diego Fagundez knotted the game at a goal apiece in the 46th minute of the first half from the right side of the box to bring New England (6-4-4) even.

Bradley Wright-Phillips gave New York (8-3-3) a quick 1-0 lead in the eighth minute on a header to score in his fourth straight game against New England. Wright-Phillips, with nine goals in 12 games played this season, fell two goals behind Atlanta's Josef Martinez in the Golden Boot race after the Venezuelan scored a hat trick in a 3-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.
