Wednesday, May 25, 2011
HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- Luke Rodgers scored in the 33rd minute to cap the teams' six-minute scoring flurry and lift the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night.
Jeff Larentowicz scored twice for the defending MLS champion Rapids (4-3-5), who had their fourth straight draw.
Larentowicz opened the scoring by tapping in the rebound of his own failed penalty shot in the 27th minute. That started the league's fastest scoring binge since March 28, 2008, when Houston and San Jose also combined for four goals in six minutes.
Thierry Henry also scored for New York (4-2-5), which moved into a tie with Philadelphia for first place in the Eastern Conference. Henry's sixth goal of the season to tied DC United's Charlie Davis for second place in MLS. Los Angeles' Landon Donovan leads with seven.
