MLS Regular Season
Colorado Rapids maintained their unbeaten run on the road with a 1-1 draw at New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.
Gabriel Torres nodded home his third goal of the season to put Pablo Mastroeni’s side ahead in the 25th minute. But Bradley Wright-Phillips equalized from the penalty spot five minutes later.
Rapids had chances in the remainder of the first half. New York carved out opportunities in the second.
Both sides will argue they deserved three points, which might mean that one each was just about fair.
TORRES EQUALS PREVIOUS BEST
With his 25th minute headed goal at the Red Bulls, the 26-year-old Panama international striker Gabriel Torres matched the goal tally achieved in 2013 and 2014. He notched three goals and one assist in 2013, from seven appearances (five starts), after joining in early August of that year.
On the result:
We had enough chances in this game to win it. I think we created some things. We were let down by a few situations out on the field that could have easily gone our way that change the course of the game, but that's football. We control what we can. I think the effort was spectacular. The guys executed what we wanted to achieve here almost to a 'T' here, the only thing lacking was scoring that second goal.
On it being a better result given the strong opponent:
Nick LaBrocca labels New York Red Bulls a 'dangerous side' ahead of the meeting at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday night, as the Colorado Rapids look to maintain their solid road form.
The Rapids have picked up five of their seven points away from Dick's Sporting Goods, with goalless draws at Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo, before a blistering 4-0 win at FC Dallas.

On the frustration of playing well and not getting wins…
Colorado Rapids battled back to tie 1-1 with FC Dallas at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Friday night.
The visitors went ahead after 31 minutes when Mauro Diaz converted a cross from Fabian Castillo.
After Blas Pérez was dismissed on the hour, Rapids fought back and were rewarded when Nick LaBrocca bravely fired home 11 minutes from the end.
Welcome Rapids Fans,
Just six days on from our previous home game, and we face a side in FC Dallas that we met in Texas only two weeks ago.
Two premier forwards are set to go head-to-head in this week's Western Union International Matchup to Watch.
Fabian Castillo is a native of Colombia entering his fifth year with FC Dallas. Castillo is coming off a 2014 campaign where he finished the season with ten goals. Last week against Toronto FC, Castillo struck early and often by finding the back of the net twice in the game's first ten minutes, thus earning him MLS Player of the Week honors.
