D.C.’s Alecko Eskandarian also scored on a sensational one-time volley, while Kansas City’s Sasha Victorine scored from the penalty spot.


Red Bulls 1, Fire 1

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Diego Gutierrez scored on a penalty kick in the 68th minute and the Chicago Fire tied the winless New York Red Bulls 1-1 on Saturday night.

The goal was Gutierrez’s first of the season.

and came after Danny O’Rourke ran over the back of second-half substitute Nate Jaqua, almost directly on top of the penalty spot.

The tie was the Fire’s fourth and the Red Bulls’ fifth of the season, leaving both at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. Chicago (1-1-4) is fifth with seven points, two ahead of the last-place Red Bulls (0-1-5).

New York took the lead in the 27th minute on Jean Philippe Peguero’s first goal since he joined the Red Bulls last month. Peguero, who came to New York from Colorado on April 21 for Thiago Martins and two draft choices, outmuscled defender C.J. Brown to get a cross from Seth Stammler and headed the ball over goalie Zach Thornton.

Jon Conway, who hadn’t played in an MLS game in a year and a half, played a strong game in goal for the Red Bulls. He was a last-minute replacement for Tony Meola, who strained his left calf in the pregame warmups.

Both sides had late chances to take the lead. Red Bulls forward Youri Djorkaeff hit the left post with a right-footed drive in the 82nd and, a minute later, Jaqua put a shot off the crossbar from the top of the penalty area.

Amado Guevara, the 2004 MLS MVP, was pulled in the 55th minute by Red Bulls coach Mo Johnston, drawing an exasperated expression from the Honduran midfielder. Rookie defender Marvell Wynne replaced Guevara, who left the field and walked into the stands.
