Henry Visits RFK. Red Bulls, United Tie 2-2

RFK Stadium played host to soccer royalty earlier this evening, as Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls visited their arch-rivals DC United. After dominating the first half, the Red Bulls needed a late goal by Wilman Conde in the 88th minute to escape with a 2-2 tie. Conde's score spoiled a spirited second half effort by the home team, highlighted by Dwayne De Rosario's 100th career MLS goal.

Attendance was 10,303: Before tonight's game, DC was ranked third to last in the MLS (behind Chivas USA and New England) averaging 13,735. DC United's record drops to 12-9-5, tied for fourth place with Chicago in the Eastern Conference. The Black and Red travel to Utah to face Real Salt Lake on Saturday (9:00 PM EST.)
