MLS Game Summary - Kansas City at New York



(Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Kansas City 0, New York 0

Harrison, NJ (Sports Network) - Red Bull New York managed to clinch a playoff berth on Saturday despite being held to a 0-0 draw by Sporting Kansas City at Red Bull Arena.

The result sees New York (15-9-9) improve to 54 points on the season, but it was D.C. United's 3-2 defeat of the Columbus Crew on Saturday that solidified the Red Bulls' place in the postseason.

Kansas City (17-7-9) remains on top of the Eastern Conference on 60 points and will look to seal the top seed in the East with a result in its final match of the season.

New York dictated play for much of the opening period but finally began turning possession into clear scoring opportunities in the second-half.

The Red Bulls came within inches of getting in front in the 64th minute when Jimmy Nielsen produced a sprawling one-handed save off of a shot from Thierry Henry. Kenny Cooper collected the rebound and slid a ball across the face of goal that was nearly turned in by a Sporting defender, but it instead struck the face of Nielsen from point-blank range.

Luis Robles came up big at the other end for the New York, denying Kei Kamara's header five minutes from time with a quick reaction save. It was the only time the rookie 'keeper was called into action on the night.
