HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Serge Ngoma became the youngest player to score in Major League Soccer this season at 16, getting a go-ahead goal in the 89th minute as the New York Red Bulls rallied late to beat Atlanta United 2-1. Lewis Morgan scored on a penalty kick in the 83rd minute, eight minutes after Josef Martínez put Atlanta ahead. Ngoma, at 16 years, 357 days, intercepted a soft crossfield pass from Franco Ibarra to Alex DeJohn, broke in alone on Rocco Rios Novo and beat the goalkeeper to the near post with a right-foot shot from the edge of the 6-yard box.
