Cahill scores late and Red Bulls tie Sounders 1-1

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Tim Cahill got control of a loose ball in the penalty area and scored late in the 76th minute on Sunday night, lifting the New York Red Bulls into a 1-1 tie with the Seattle Sounders that put them back atop the MLS standings.

 

The Eastern Conference-leading Red Bulls (15-9-7) have 52 points, while the Sounders (15-8-6) picked up their 51st point to climb back into a tie with Real Salt Lake for first place in the Western Conference.

 

The goal was Cahill's ninth of the year, tying him for the team lead with Thierry Henry, who missed the game with an Achilles injury.

 

Brad Evans gave the Sounders a 1-0 lead with a penalty kick midway through the 45th minute.

 

Evans' goal was his fourth of the season, two of them on PKs.
