MLS Cup Playoffs: L.A. Galaxy At Red Bulls First Half Update

The New York Red Bulls play host to the Los Angeles Galaxy this afternoon at Red Bull Arena. The Northeast was hammered with a snowstorm and there were some concerns that the game would be delayed due to field conditions as Red Bull Arena wasn't built to handle snow well. There were also questions if Luke Rodgers would be healthy enough to play as he was dealing with a nagging knee injury for much of the season and sat out of the wild card game on Wednesday against F.C. Dallas. 

The Red Bulls almost went ahead in the fifth minute off a corner kick but couldn't convert. L.A. was the first to draw blood with a Magee goal in the 16th minute of play. Thierry Henry almost evened up the game in the 21st and 22nd minutes but the ball just went wide. Finally in the 37th minute Joel Lindpere took a shot on goal that just missed. The half closed with Thierry Henry receiving a yellow card for tripping David Beckham in the 44th minute.
