Red Bulls, Fire Play To 1-1 Tie

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Dax McCarty’s goal in the 21st minute lifted the New York Red Bulls to a 1-1 tie with the Chicago Fire on Sunday.

The deadlock, played in 28 degree temperatures, kept each team winless at 0-1-2 records.

For the second straight match, the Fire opened the scoring and then were tied.

Chicago midfielder Jeff Larentowicz headed Harrison Shipp’s corner kick past goalkeeper Luis Robles from 8 yards out in the sixth minute.

New York tied the game on McCarty’s 13-yard shot off a scramble in the 21st minute. McCarty found the ball in a crowd after a corner kick was cleared by the Chicago defense, and beat Sean Johnson with a short right-footed kick.

Alex’s hard left-footed shot for the Fire was saved by Robles in the 47th minute.
