Muyl’s 2nd-half goal gives Red Bulls 1-1 draw with Crew
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Alex Muyl tied it with a header in the 57th minute and the New York Red Bulls held on for a 1-1 draw with the Columbus Crew on Saturday.
Muyl scored for the Red Bulls (7-4-2) on Marc Rzatkowski’s corner, beating backup goalkeeper Jon Kempin to the ball and heading it over the top of Kempin for the goal. Kempin replaced Crew (7-3-4) starter Zack Steffen who was on international duty for the U.S. men’s national team in its friendly against France on Saturday.
Gyasi Zardes opened the scoring with his 10th goal of the season in the 26th minute with a strong header to finish Harrison Afful’s looping cross from the end line.
Columbus extended its unbeaten streak to nine.
