Late Henry heroics save point for New York

BY foxsports • October 1, 2011

Thierry Henry scored in the 88th minute to lift the New York Red Bulls to a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday night.


Danny Koevermans scored in the 50th minute for Toronto FC (6-13-13), which was officially eliminated from postseason contention.

Toronto appeared poised for the win until Henry redirected a corner kick that pulled the Red Bulls (8-8-15) even and preserved their playoff chances.

Koeverman gave Toronto the lead when he took a pass from Ryan Johnson at the left corner of the box and calmly slotted it past New York goalkeeper Frank Rost.

Henry had a chance in the 64th minute, firing a shot from the left corner of the box that Toronto goalkeeper Milos Kocic dove left to save. Six minutes later, Henry sent in a cross to Jan Gunnar Solli, whose header was just wide right of the net.
