Red Bulls rout MLS-leading FC Dallas

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Lloyd Sam scored on a set play in the 37th minute and the New York Red Bulls added three goals in the second half to beat MLS-leading FC Dallas 4-0 on Friday night.

The Red Bulls (3-6-0) scored on a coordinated play off Sacha Kljestan's free kick. Kljestan floated it over the defense, where Sal Zizzo was wide open to head it back across the 6-yard box for Sam's close-range finish.

Sam's long-distance chip shot in the 52nd minute crashed high off the crossbar and caught goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez out of position as Kljestan raced in to head home the rebound.

Mike Grella made it 3-0 with a header in the 71st minute, and Felipe's strike from the top of the penalty arc capped the scoring in the 83rd.

FC Dallas (5-3-2) is winless in four visits to Red Bull Arena.
