Luke Rodgers scored for the Red Bulls to cancel out a penalty-kick goal by Eric Hassli, leaving the Whitecaps winless since their opening game — an 11-match streak — and the Red Bulls, who traveled without Designated Players Rafa Márquez and Thierry Henry, without a victory in five outings.
Vancouver opened the scoring in the 24th minute after a lovely give-and-go between Davide Chiumiento and Camilo ended with the Brazilian being taken down in the box by New York right back Carlos Mendes.
Hassli buried the enduing spot kick to give the ‘Caps a 1-0 lead.
Ten minutes later, the Red Bulls found an equalizer as Roy Miller lofted a pass across the field to Solli, who then fed Rodgers for a one-timer past Nolly to take the teams into the break level at 1-1.
