Carson, Calif (August 7, 2016) – The New York Red Bulls stretched the unbeaten streak to six games in MLS, and seven overall, with a 2-2 draw against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday night at the StubHub Center. Gonzalo Veron and Sean Davis both scored for New York.
New York’s current unbeaten run is the club’s longest this season, spanning seven games including the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League win on Wednesday night. The Red Bulls have not lost since falling 2-0 to New York City FC at Yankee Stadium on July 3.
Veron entered the game in the 47th minute, replacing Bradley Wright-Phillips. It was the third injury substitution of the match, as New York had to replace Damien Perrinelle and Connor Lade in the first half.
Veron opened the scoring in the 68th minute, running into space behind the Galaxy back line and into the path of a slotted ball from Sacha Kljestan. Veron beat the defenders to the ball and coolly chipped Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe.
Minutes later Davis doubled the advantage, taking a pass from Felipe in the box and using his first touch to set the ball for a curling strike inside the far-right post. It was the first MLS goal for the second-year Homegrown Player, who has also scored in the U.S. Open Cup.
Felipe earned assists on both goals, giving him six helpers this year. It was the Brazilian’s first multi-assist game for New York, and the fourth of his MLS career.
The Galaxy showed why they are unbeaten at home this season by responding with two late goals to equalize.
New York returns home to host the Montreal Impact next Saturday, August 13, at 7 p.m. Tickets for all Red Bulls home matches are available by calling 1.877.727.6223 or visiting www.NewYorkRedBulls.com/tickets.
