Harrison, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – Bradford Jamieson IV and Felipe Martins
exchanged goals on Sunday as the Los Angeles Galaxy and New York Red Bulls
played to an entertaining 1-1 draw at Red Bull Arena.
Jamieson struck for the visitors after nine minutes, but Felipe bagged the
equalizer just prior to the hour mark to rescue a point for New York and keep
Jesse Marsch’s side unbeaten through six matches.
Los Angeles, meanwhile, handed 18-year-old Jamieson the start up top in place
of Irish international Robbie Keane and the result extended the Galaxy’s
unbeaten streak to a modest three games.
The Galaxy grabbed the lead when Jamieson did well to get past two New York
defenders and into the penalty area before ripping one low and hard into the
bottom right corner, leaving New York goalkeeper Luis Robles with no chance.
The Red Bulls found an equalizer in the 58th minute with a bit of good fortune
when Sal Zizzo played a low cross into the area that was blocked by the LA
defense, but the ball popped right onto the head of Felipe, who nodded it home
from close range.
Both teams created several scoring chances over the final 30 minutes as the
fourth official’s board showed four minutes of added time, but the clubs were
forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
