New York Red Bulls beat Orlando City 2-0

Maitland's Dax McCarty got an assist in his homecoming game, and his New York Red Bulls beat Orlando City 2-0 Saturday night. Mike Grella scored in the 91st minute, and Sacha Kljestan scored in the 21st minute for New York.
But the referee and some of his questionable decisions were the big story at the Citrus Bowl.
"I don't know really what to say about the officials," said Orlando City Head Coach Adrian Heath. "Because If I say something, I get fined and get in trouble, but if I don't say anything, nothing changes."
Heath was ejected from the game in the 74th minute. He'd seen too many borderline calls and argued with the referee and linesman all evening.
Cyle Larin was ejected from the game in the 32nd minute, after receiving a straight red card for a non-contact studs-up challenge.
That marks the third straight game where Orlando City has had a player sent off with a red card. Larin will miss the next game.
The Lions will next play the Fire in the Open Cup Quarterfinals on Wednesday night in Chicago.
