White's Late-Match Equalizer Secures Point from Orlando City

October 18, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New York Red Bulls News Release

New Jersey native Brian White scored a late-match equalizer to help the New York Red Bulls (7-8-4, 25 pts) secure a home point against Orlando City SC (8-2-8, 32 pts), 1-1 on Sunday at Red Bull Arena.

New York has extended its unbeaten streak to three matches (1-0-2), which is their longest unbeaten streak since the three-match unbeaten streak (2-0-1) from September 18-29, 2019 as they tallied back-to-back 2-0 wins over Portland and Philadelphia and concluded with a 0-0 draw versus D.C. United.

Despite allowing a penalty kick goal for the second-straight match, New York has not allowed a goal from the run of play in 305 minutes.

As time was winding down in extra-time, Jason Pendant sent a pass across the box to White. White controlled the ball and beat Brian Rowe to the far post for the equalizer.

New York defender Amro Tarek committed a foul inside the penalty box to give Orlando a penalty kick. Nani took the attempt and finished to the left side to give OCSC a 1-0 lead in the 56th minute.

White tallied his second goal of 2020 and 12th career MLS regular-season goal. It is the second time in White's career that he has come off the bench and scored a goal.

Pendant recorded his second career MLS assist in his 13th career start.

Yonkers native Ryan Meara recorded two saves to preserve the 1-1 draw. Meara has allowed just one goal or less in 21 of 32 MLS regular-season matches.

New York grabbed at least a point where they gave up the first goal of the match for the second consecutive game and third time this season. The Red Bulls previously won 4-1 versus Montreal after going down 1-0 early and earned a 1-1 draw at Toronto after giving up the game's first goal on a penalty kick.

Interim Head Coach Bradley Carnell owns a 4-4-2 overall.

New York is 30-19-13 all-time in the month of October. The Red Bulls have scored 98 goals and allowed 78 in the 10th month of the year.

New York will have five days to prepare before traveling to face Chicago Fire FC on Saturday. The five-day stretch will be the longest between games in 2020 since their five-day stretch between Montreal and Orlando City from Sept. 27 to Oct. 3. Saturday's kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. with coverage on MSG and New York Red Bulls Radio in English and Spanish.
