HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- Corey Hertzog and John Rooney scored seven minutes apart in the second half and the New York Red Bulls rallied for a 2-1 victory over FC New York in a third-round game in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night.

Rooney, the brother of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, got the game-winner in the 65th minute with a blast from just outside the penalty area for his first goal with the Red Bulls.

Hertzog had tied the game in the 58th minute.

FC New York, a USL Pro League team, had taken a 1-0 lead in the 56th minute when Owen Morrison took a pass from Don Smart and beat goalkeeper Greg Sutton to the top left corner with a 25-yard shot.

The Red Bulls will play the Fire in Chicago on July 12 in the quarterfinals.
