The New York Red Bulls and Columbus Crew both took advantage of defensive mistakes, battling to a sloppy but dramatic 1-1 draw that was decided on Darlington Nagbe’s 95th-minute equalizer Sunday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.
THE BIG PICTURE: They left it late, but the Nagbe’s equalizer salvaged the Crew’s unbeaten record to start the year. While it certainly wasn’t pretty, Caleb Porter’s side ultimately got the job done in one of the league’s more difficult stadiums. New York nearly bounced back from last week’s loss to Minnesota United with a scrappy three points, but a major defensive lapse in second half stoppage time forced them to settle for a draw.
