Global Sports : NY Red Bulls Held In Opener

posted in: News | 0

Lloyd Sam scored the equaliser as New York Red Bulls drew 1-1 at Sporting Kansas City in their MLS opener on Sunday.
Former Leeds winger Sam levelled in the 54th minute after Ike Opara headed in Benny Feilhaber’s cross to give Sporting Kansas the lead after the interval.
Opara was on target in his return from an ankle injury which has sidelined him for a year.
Sporting Kansas captain Matt Besler was sent off for a foul on Red Bulls’ ex-Southampton and Charlton striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, but the home side held on to secure a point.
Meanwhile, USA captain Clint Dempsey scored twice – the first a penalty – and Obafemi Martins headed the other as Seattle Sounders beat New England Revolution 3-0.
Tyrone Mears, on his debut for Seattle following his summer departure from Bolton, provided the cross for Martins to score.
And, in Sunday’s other match, Kaka hit a late leveller for Orlando City to deny New York City victory in a game between two new MLS expansion teams.
New York City, without Frank Lampard until his deal at Manchester City ends in the summer, took the lead through Mix Diskerud following a pass from David Villa.
