Thierry Henry scored his league-leading 11th goal with five minutes remaining to help NY salvage a 2-2 tie at home to FC Dallas on Saturday night.
Just minutes after New York went down a man on Dane Richards' second yellow card, Henry controlled a Dax McCarty pass 20 yards from goal, froze the FC Dallas defense with a fake and left-footed a shot near post past a hopelessly sprawled Kevin Hartman to level the game at 2-2.
The Frenchman's late strike cancelled out a second-half brace by FC Dallas forward Marvin Chavez, whose two tallies in the 51st and 78th minute, overturned a 1-0 NYRB lead secured by Juan Agudelo minutes before halftime.
For much of the match’s opening minutes, the action on the field was nondescript, characterized by half chances with the Red Bulls, true to their form, holding the majority of the first half possession.
