FRISCO, Texas (AP) Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the 71st minute to help the New York Red Bulls beat FC Dallas 1-0 on Sunday.

New York extended its unbeaten streak to four games to improve to 3-2-5, and FC Dallas dropped to 5-3-1.

Thierry Henry assisted on the goal with a through ball from the top of the penalty box to Wright-Phillips, who fired a shot into center of the net from 6 yards. Wright-Phillips scored his sixth goal of the season and his fifth in the last three games.

The Red Bulls played most of the game with a one-man advantage after Dallas' Je-Vaughn Watson was given a red card in the 10th minute for a hard foul on New York's Tim Cahill.

Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles made a diving save to his right side to stop Blas Perez's penalty attempt in the 58th minute. FC Dallas was awarded the penalty shot after Tim Cahill was called for a foul on Danny Garcia. Less than two minutes later, Robles made a two-handed leaping stop to prevent a goal by Garcia.
