Caden Clark scored an equalizing golazo, the 17-year-old’s second goal in as many games, as the New York Red Bulls rallied to earn a 1-1 draw against Supporters' Shield-leading Toronto FCWednesday night at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.
Clark, who scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Atlanta United Saturday just hours after officially joining the team, was part of a double substitution in the 59th minute, and his second goal in a Red Bulls uniform was even better than the first.
Clark dug Marc Rzatkowski’s pass out of his feet, fended off Marky Delgado and fired a blast into the side netting in the 77th minute to level.
Alejandro Pozuelo put Toronto FC in front in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot, putting his low spot kick to the right of a rooted Ryan Meara after Dru Yearwood handled Ayo Akinola’sattempt in the box.
The Red Bulls pushed for the equalizer and had several chances with an apparent Yearwood equalizer in the 33rd minute called back when Tom Barlow was in an offside position while Barlow and Florian Valot also squandering clear opportunities.
But Clark wouldn’t miss and his stunner is what earned the Red Bulls a valuable point.
