The New York Red Bulls couldn't hold on during last night's match in the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the MLS playoffs. The Red Bulls went up 1-0 early, but Houston came back to tie things up. The score was still 1-1 at the end of regulation leading to an extra 30 minutes of overtime. Houston put one in the back of the net in the first half of overtime. New York had a lot of good looks, including one off the cross-bar and a stunning bicycle kick by Thierry Henry that just missed wide. New York was plagued by bad touches, missed connections, and a handful of controversial calls. Despite the forward momentum of a string of sold-out home crowds and their recent win of the Supporter's Shield, they couldn't hold it together ending overtime down 1-2.
The game was kind of dissapointing from a photo point of view. We watched a lot of action going down on the other side of the field with a few quick spurts on our end. A clutch finish scoring on the goal in front of their main supporters side would have been epic, but just didn't happen..until next year!
