The Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls are both still looking for their first win after exchanging first-half set piece goals in Toyota Park Sunday.
It was only 21 minutes into the match, but Dax McCarty’s equalizer on a scramble in the box was enough to secure a road point for the Red Bulls, bringing both teams to 0-1-2 on the season.
McCarty’s reaction was quickest in a crowd following a corner kick that was cleared away but not out by Chicago defense, hitting a short one far post to goalkeeper Sean Johnson’s left.
Chicago had come out strong early, scoring in the sixth minute with Jeff Larentowicz heading a corner kick into the top right corner past goalkeeper Luis Robles. The match marked the second straight game where Chicago had scored first but settled for a tie.
Up next, The Fire go away to face D.C. United next Saturday while the Red Bulls will host Chivas USA.
