MATCH RECAP, pres. by Provident Bank: New York, Atlanta Battle It Out to a Draw

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the dying moments to answer the latter goal of Josef Martinez's brace two minutes earlier, and the New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United settled for a 3-3 draw before yet another massive crowd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Back from Copa America duty with Venezuela, Martinez has now scored a brace in each of his last three MLS starts. Meanwhile, Wright-Phillips scored just his second goal of the season after coming on as a 77th-minute substitute.

Earlier, Martinez had leveled the match at 2-all with a penalty after Brian White gave the visitors a second-half lead, and Daniel Royer's late-first half strike nullified Justin Meram's opener.
