RECAP: Hartford Falls To NYRB2 After Controversial Decision Puts Athletic Down Two Men

By Hartford Athletic, 08/10/19, 3:15PM EDT


Hartford Athletic suffered a 5-1 loss to New York Red Bulls 2 in front of 4,262 fans at Dillon Stadium.

Hartford drew first blood on a rocket from Sebastian Dalgaard in the 31st minute to put the Boys in Green up 1-0. Athletic carried the 1-0 lead into halftime in a back and forth first half. 

The match changed course in the 53rd minute after the referee called Hartford Defender Alex Davey  for a take down in the box. The referee subsequently made two harsh decisions -- issuing a red card to both Davey for the foul and fellow Athletic Defender Raymond Lee for dissent. Up two men for the remaining nearly 40 minutes of the match -- New York went on to slot 5 goals from Elney (64'), Nealis (75'), Bezecourt (81'), Stroud (82'), and Loebe (90' +2).
