HARRISON, N.J. — Ismael Tajouri-Shradi scored for the fourth consecutive match and New York FC beat Atlanta United 1-0 on Wednesday night.

New York City won for the second time in three games. Atlanta had its five-game undefeated streak snapped. Tajouri-Shradi scored in the 69th minute.

Keaton Parks intercepted a pass near midfield and delivered it to Valentin Castellanos, who sent it past the defense for Tajouri-Shradi’s calm finish.

NYCFC outshot Atlanta 18-6, including Valentín Castellanos’ attempt off the post in the 84th.

City return to action Sunday evening when they take on DC United.
