Grella continued both his and the Red Bulls’ strong run of form on Sunday, as his brace led the club to a 2-0 win over Seattle Sounders FC at Red Bull Arena for the team’s fourth consecutive shutout victory. In his second season with the Red Bulls, Grella has proven instrumental to its success as the team is now undefeated this season, going 5-0 in games where Grella scores a goal. NYRB now sits in second place in the Eastern Conference standings (22 points, 7-7-1), one point behind leader Philadelphia Union.
The New York native notched the second brace of his NYRB career with a beauty of a goal in the 59th minute of play, stealing a back pass before smoothly chipping Sounders FC goalkeeper Stefan Frei for a 2-0 Red Bulls advantage (Watch Goal). The goal is one of eight nominated for AT&T Goal of the Week.
