Kljestan's goal lifts Orlando over Red Bulls

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) Sacha Kljestan scored against his former team to help Orlando City beat the New York Red Bulls 1-0 on Saturday night.

Kljestan finished Joao Moutinho's wide cross with a low shot that slipped past goalkeeper Luis Robles in the 73rd minute. Before the match, Red Bulls fans booed when Kljestan's name was announced as a part of Orlando's starting lineup.

Three minutes after Kljestan scored, New York had its best opportunity to tie as Danny Royer put a header on frame. But Carlos Ascues made a goal-line clearance to preserve the first victory of the season for the Lions (1-1-2).

The Red Bulls (1-1-1) lost Connor Lade and possibly Omir Fernandez to injuries.
