Henry leads the way as New York rolls over TFCSep 30, 2012 - 1:10 AM Harrison, NJ (Sports Network) - Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper teamed up to lead Red Bull New York to a 4-1 win over Toronto FC at Red Bull Arena on Saturday.
Henry assisted on the first three goals for New York and then scored just before the final whistle, while Cooper netted two of them to take his tally to 16 on the season, moving the Red Bulls into second place with the Chicago Fire on 53 points in the Eastern Conference.
Toronto started well and saw a shot from Quincy Amarikwa hit the post in the second minute before Ryan Johnson found the net a few minutes later with a rocket from 30 yards that had New York goalkeeper Luis Robles well beaten.
But the home side responded in the 13th minute when Henry's corner kick was headed home by Markus Holgersson to level the contest.
The Frenchman helped put New York into the lead midway through the first half with a nice bit of individual skill as he darted into the penalty area, drew two defenders and laid the ball off for Cooper to knock into the empty net.
New York continued to press the action in the second half, and Toronto goalkeeper Freddy Hall made a nice diving stop on Henry before Tim Cahill went close in the 65th minute.
But Henry helped seal the win by setting up another goal for Cooper in the 88th minute and then capping his evening with a lovely chip from outside the area that sailed over the head of Hall and into the net.
