Lenhart’s scores late; San Jose ties New York 1-1
HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Steven Lenhart scored his first goal of the season in the 85th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes rallied for a 1-1 draw against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday.
Lenhart took advantage of a failed clearance by New York inside the penalty area. Lenhart controlled a deflected ball and sent in a shot off the hand of goalkeeper Luis Robles to tie the game at 1-1.
San Jose (4-8-5) ended a four-game losing streak.
Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his MLS-leading 17th goal of the season for New York (5-6-9) in the 33rd minute. Lenhart was called for a hand ball in the penalty area while battling Tim Cahill on a corner kick. Wright-Phillips easily sent home the penalty kick as goalkeeper Jon Busch dove the wrong way.
Wright-Phillips is two goals away from tying the single-season club record of 19 set by Juan Pablo Angel in 2007.
