Kickers, Red Bulls II End All Square

RICHMOND, Va. – The Richmond Kickers and New York Red Bulls II played to a 1-1 draw on Saturday night at a rainy City Stadium. The Kickers took the lead in the 17th minute when Brian Shriver curled home a free kick off the crossbar and in from 25 yards for his first goal of the season. New York responded strongly, and both Jose Aguinaga and Stefano Bonomo forced saves from Kickers goalkeeper Travis Worra from outside the penalty area, but the hosts went to the break ahead. Richmond almost added to its lead in the 58th minute when a low free kick by Raul Gonzalez was denied by Red Bulls II goalkeeper Evan Louro, but the Red Bulls II got back on level terms with just over 20 minutes to go when Aguinaga powered home a finish after Worra had initially saved well to keep out Cristian Casseres. Richmond’s Gonzalez shot just wide in the 81st minute with a low shot toward the right corner, while New York’s Jared Stroud had a late chance saved well by Worra with a volley from inside the penalty area, but neither side found a winner as the game ended all square.

17’ – RIC – Brian Shriver
