Revolution Vs. Red Bulls Update: Barnes And Lindpere Trade Late Goals In Thrilling 1-1 Finish

The New England Revolution and the New York Red Bulls looked poised for a 0-0 draw, but a flurry of activity in stoppage time created drama for a season-best crowd of 24,364. Joel Lindpere opened the match scoring, but just a few minutes later, Darrius Barnes scored the first goal of his career to salvage a point and maintain New England's long home unbeaten streak against New York.

Lindpere put the Red Bulls on the board in the first minute of stoppage time after a defensive miscue. A lofted cross from the left drifted to the far post, where Tim Cahill challenged A.J. Soares in the air. Bobby Shuttleworth came out to punch clear, but got mixed up with Soares and failed to clear the ball. It bounced high and Lindpere barged in, nodding the ball into the goal with Shuttleworth off his line and out of the net.

With the wind knocked from the crowd, the Revs didn't give up, and in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time, they found their equalizer. Ryan Guy played an excellent cross in from deep, and Barnes rose highest above all - including New York goalkeeper Bill Gaudette - to thunder home a header. The goal was Barnes' first of his career, coming 88 games after his Revolution debut.
