Final Score: New York 1, Colorado 1
Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - Red Bull New York and the Colorado Rapids
battled to a 1-1 draw in Major League Soccer action at Dick's Sporting Goods
Park on Sunday night.
Omar Cummings and Juan Pablo Angel scored first-half goals for their
respective teams in the draw, which was New York's first this season.
The Red Bulls had a three-game winning streak snapped, while Colorado stays
unbeaten in its last six MLS fixtures.
The game's first goal was scored in the 15th minute by the home Rapids after a
counter attack led by Conor Casey. The big forward found his strike partner
Cummings with a perfectly weighted pass to the far post, and the Jamaican
fired home for his fourth goal of the season.
New York had a chance to equalize about 10 minutes later when goalkeeper Bouna
Coundoul started a quick counter attack with an outlet pass to Dan Richards.
Richards then played a pass into space in the offensive third for Angel, but
he was snuffed in the box by Colorado goalkeeper Matt Pickens.
But on the ensuing corner kick, Angel collected a Sinisa Ubiparipovic service,
took a touch and rocketed a shot into the top right corner for his ninth goal
of the season.
The team's battled to a stalemate in the second half, with the best chance
being a Mehdi Ballouchy shot off the crossbar behind Coundoul with a little
over 20 minutes to play.
New York (8-5-1) is back in action vs. D.C. United on Saturday, while the
Rapids (6-3-4) are at Toronto on the same day in their next MLS fixture.
