HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- Thierry Henry scored his league-leading 11th goal in the 85th minute Saturday to lift the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas on Saturday night.
Henry's goal, coming after Marvin Chavez's second goal put Dallas up 2-1 in the 79th minute, came off a direct kick from newly-acquired Dax McCarty. Henry blasted it in from just to the left of the box, beating goalkeeper Kevin Hartman to the wide side.
The tie put the Red Bulls (6-5-12) a point behind Eastern Conference leader Philadelphia, while Dallas (11-5-6) remained three points behind West-leading Los Angeles.
U.S. national team member Juan Agudelo's fifth goal of the season in the 39th minute put the Red Bulls up 1-0. Chavez tied it in the 51st.
