Red Bulls 0, Columbus Crew 0: Short-Handed New York Earns Draw

COLUMBUS, OH (March 26, 2011) – The short-handed New York Red Bulls earned a 0-0 draw Saturday against the Columbus Crew at a frigid Crew Stadium. New York (1-0-1) now has four points thus far in the just-underway MLS season.

The Red Bulls had a depleted side Saturday, missing six players due to international duty in addition to injured forward Thierry Henry (left hamstring strain) and goalkeeper Greg Sutton (concussion). As a result, New York was forced to make six moves in its Starting 11 from its 1-0 win over Seattle a week before.

Goalkeeper Alex Horwath, signed Friday by the Red Bulls, made his professional debut. He made a brilliant save in the 14th minute, rushing off his line to block a Robbie Rogers shot. Red Bulls defender Stephen Keel made his New York debut, playing 90 minutes, while forward Luke Rodgers managed to play 84 minutes in his first MLS match. Rodgers’ replacement, rookie Corey Hertzog, came on to make his professional debut.

New York returns home to battle Eastern Conference rival, the Houston Dynamo, at Red Bull Arena on April 2 at 7:30 PM
