Zeiko Lewis made his New York Red Bulls debut last night after coming on as a substitute in the team’s Major League Soccer preseason win over Portland Timbers last night.

The Bermuda winger was a 69th-minute replacement in the Red Bulls’ 2-0 victory in Tucson, Arizona.

In a game that took place over three periods of 30 minutes, Red Bulls took an early lead when a cross from Kemar Lawrence was turned into his own net by fellow Jamaican Rennico Clarke.

The Red Bulls went 2-0 up in second period stoppage time when Vincent Bezecourt sent a penalty into the bottom left corner of the net.

Lewis, 21, was selected with the 17th overall pick of the MLS SuperDraft this month after a stellar career with Boston College and is the second Bermudian to play for the Red Bulls after Khano Smith made eight appearances for them in 2009.
