just 3 minutes gone in the second half. He got a pass from Justin Mapp on the
left side of the area, and slotted back to the right post.
Arnaud added to the lead when he took a pass from Felipe Martins and converted
to the top-left corner from the middle of the area just 2 minutes later.
Henry pulled a goal back for New York in the 57th, as he latched onto a cross
from Joel Lindpere, settled and shot past a charging Impact goalkeeper Donovan
Nyassi, off another assist from Martins, clinched the game when he rounded New
York goalkeeper Bill Gaudette and slotted home from a tough angle 16 minutes
