Lindpere’s 2nd helps Red Bulls tie 2-2 at ‘Quakes

Joel Lindpere scored his second goal in the 85th minute and the

New York Red Bulls tied the San Jose Earthquakes 2-2 Saturday

night.

San Jose went ahead on goals by Khari Stephenson, who equalized

in the 37th minute when Red Bulls goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul

couldn’t handle an inswinging corner, and Steven Lenhart.

The Earthquakes’ second goal came in the 68th minute when

Lenhart was unmarked and converted Steven Beitashour’s long cross

from the right wing.

New York went ahead early, when Lindpere initially whiffed on a

cross, but had the ball bounce off defender Ramiro Corrales right

to his feet, and he converted.

It was San Jose’s first game at Stanford in 12 years, and 41,028

attended.
