Red Bulls Stretch Unbeaten Streak to Four, Draw Chicago Fire, 2-2

October 24, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New York Red Bulls News Release

New Jersey native Brian White for the second consecutive game scored the equalizing goal in stoppage time to help the New York Red Bulls (7-8-5, 26 pts) earn a road point at Chicago Fire FC (5-8-6, 21 pts), 2-2 on Saturday at Soldier Field.

The Red Bulls are 3-1-2 in their last six road matches and have recorded 13 of their 26 total points on the road this season. The 13 road points are tied for third in the league.

New York has earned a point after falling behind for the third-straight match to extend their unbeaten streak to four matches.

The Red Bulls continued their positive-result run after scoring the first goal in a match, having scored first in 10 of 20 matches and going 6-1-3 when scoring first. Since the Red Bulls implemented their high-press system in 2015, New York is 76-13-19 when scoring the first goal of the match.

New York jumped on the scoreboard first as Jared Stroud found Kyle Duncan on the right side of the top of the 18-yard box. Duncan settled the ball with his right and drove his shot to the far corner to beat Bobby Shuttleworth in the 39th minute for the 1-0 lead.

Chicago, however, regained the lead early on in the second half over a 21-minute stretch with goals from Rober Beric and Przemyslaw Frankowski.

As time winded down in stoppage time, White crashed the net on a loose ball and found the late-match equalizer for the second straight match.

White tallied his third goal of 2020 and 13th career MLS regular-season goal. It is the third time in White's career that he has come off the bench and scored a goal.

Kyle Duncan recorded his third goal of the season and fourth of his career. New York is 3-0-1 when Duncan tallies a goal or an assist in 2020.

Stroud recorded his second career MLS assist in his eighth career start.

Yonkers native Ryan Meara recorded four saves to preserve the 2-2 draw.

Interim Head Coach Bradley Carnell owns a 4-4-3 overall.

New York is 30-19-14 all-time in the month of October. The Red Bulls have scored 100 goals and allowed 80 in the 10th month of the year.

New York returns to Red Bull Arena and hosts the New England Revolution on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Kickoff for Wednesday's match is scheduled for 7 p.m. with coverage on MSG and New York Red Bulls Radio in English and Spanish.
