Red Bulls graphic 00:12

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Aaron Long scored and the New York Red Bulls beat Sporting Kansas City 1-0 on Sunday despite playing the last 20-plus minutes a man down.

Long gave the Red Bulls (9-5-5) a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute when he headed home a ball-in played by Lewis Morgan.

New York played a man down after Sean Nealis was shown a red card in the 73rd minute for a hand ball that -- after video review -- was determined to have denied an obvious goal-scoring opportunity.

Both teams play again Saturday when Kansas City visits Montreal and the Red Bulls play at Cincinnati.
