Late Montero strike breaks stalement, sinks Bulls

Posted on 15 May 2010 by ASN Staff

An 85th minute goal by Fredy Montero broke a deadlocked game at Red Bull Arena Saturday, giving the Seattle Sounders a 1-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls. It is the second loss in a row for New York, who have now not scored a goal in 210 minutes of play dating to the May 1 victory at DC United. Perhaps more importantly, it is the team’s first loss at Red Bull Arena after six straight wins.

The decisive play of the game came off a freekick around the midfield line. Brad Evans played a long ball over Mike Petke onto the foot of Montero, who did the rest, leaving Bouna Condoul little chance in depositing the ball into the short corner of the goal.

    The free kick to Montero never should have been awarded in the first place. Horrible officiating of this game. Horrible.
