DC United Vs. New York Red Bulls, 2012 MLS: Conde Steals A Point Late for the Red Bulls

The New York Red Bulls and DC United played to an entertaining 2-2 draw at RFK Stadium. DC were led by goals from Dwayne De Rosario and Nick De Leon, who each assisted on the other's goal. Joel Lindpere and Wilman Conde found the back of the net for the Red Bulls.

New York opened the match aggressively, with Tim Cahill nearly scoring twice in the opening minutes. These were simply precursors for the inevitable goal as the Red Bulls continued to pick away at the DC defense. In the 19th minute, Joel Lindpere got behind the defense and beat Bill Hamid with what looked like a savable shot to give New York the 1-0 lead. DC didn't take kindly to this development and less than a minute later Dwayne De Rosario's chip in to the box was redirected just enough by Nick DeLeon to sneak the ball under a diving Bill Gaudette and pull DC back even. Two goalkeeping mistakes in less than two minutes.

De Rosario put DC United ahead 2-1 in the 68th minute, heading in a long pass from DeLeon taking advantage of another poor positional decision from Gaudette. It was De Rosario's 100th career regular season MLS goal and he becomes the seventh player in league history to reach that mark.

Just when it looked like United were on their win to a win, their defense failed to clsoe down on a loose ball at the top of the box, allowing Wilman Conde to unleash a blast from about 25 yards out that Hamid had no hope of stopping.
