CHESTER, Pa., May 13 (UPI) -- Kenny Cooper notched the game-winning goal in the 78th minute Sunday and Red Bull New York moved into first place with a 3-2 win over Philadelphia.

New York (7-3-1) found itself down 2-1 in the second half, but rallied after the Union's Freddy Adu was sent off with a second yellow for diving, leaving Philadelphia a man short.

Markus Holgersson headed in the tying goal in the 68th and 10 minutes later Cooper converted into an empty net when Union goalie Zac MacMath mishandled a ball.

Joel Linpere also scored for New York, which climbed to the top of the Eastern Conference -- one point ahead of Sporting Kansas City -- despite playing without leading scorer Thierry Henry.

Philadelphia (2-6-1) got a pair of goals from Lionard Pajoy.
