Emerson soccer team players watching the New York Red Bulls vs Chicago Fire Fc

 On Saturday September 30th the Emerson boys and girls soccer teams attended a NY Red Bulls match against the Chicago Fire at the Red Bulls Arena in Harrison, NJ.This was the first time the soccer teams were able to watch a live professional game.

Prior to the game, the team got field access where they could watch the Red Bulls up close as they warmed-up before the game. A few Emerson players even got high fives from players on the Red Bulls.

The teams then went up towards their seats on the second row. They were able to go to the concession stands and were able to walk around and buy food and snacks to watch during the game. 

The Red Bulls had many opportunities to score during the game. They had a goal disallowed because of a foul before the play. There were many fouls during the game and a few cards were pulled out by the referee.  In the sixty-second minute of the game Red bulls player Hassan Ndam was given his second yellow card and was sent off. This foul led to Chicago fires Georgios Koutsias to score off of a header. The Chicago Fire kept the lead for the rest of the game.

Ninth grader, Brayden Blanken, is a die hard Red Bulls fan, who even has season tickets to all of the home games. He was ecstatic to go to the game with his teammates even though he already has tickets. 

“ It was a great experience to go to a game with my friends, we had a great time and I hope we get to do it again,” Blanken said.
