Red Bulls and Fire still looking for first wins after draw

Dax McCarty

By CAITLIN MURRAY

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.
