May. 31, 2015
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Pedro Ribeiro scored in the 89th minute and Orlando City rallied to tie the 10-man Columbus Crew 2-2 on Saturday night.
Ribeiro, who missed the past seven games with a hamstring injury, was left alone after gathering a loose ball and sent in a goal from distance. Ribeiro had a shot go just wide in the 93rd minute for Orlando City (3-5-5).
Columbus (4-4-4) was down a man for 74 minutes, but took a 2-1 lead in the 61st when Kei Kamara headed in his MLS-leading 10th goal of the season.
In the first half, Tony Tchani gave the Crew a 1-0 lead in the sixth minute after heading home Hector Jimenez's cross. It was the earliest goal Orlando City has given up in its inaugural season.
Columbus' Michael Parkhurst was given a red card in the 16th minute for a questionable hand ball on the goal line. Orlando City's Kaka converted his fourth penalty kick of the season to tie the game at 1. It was Kaka's third consecutive game with a goal.
