Cincinnati eliminates Red Bulls on PKs

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) Aaron Boupendza scored the equalizer in the second half and FC Cincinnati eliminated the New York Red Bulls 8-7 in a 10-round penalty-kick shootout after the two clubs played to a 1-1 draw on Saturday night.

Neither team scored until Tom Barlow found the net unassisted in the 45th minute to give the eighth-seeded Red Bulls (11-14-10) the lead at the half.

Cincinnnati (21-5-9), the top seed in the Eastern Conference and winners of the Supporter's Shield, pulled even when Boupendza took a pass from Luciano Acosta in the 75th minute and scored. Acosta had a goal disallowed in the eighth minute of second-half stoppage time.
