HARRISON, N.J., May 23 (UPI) -- Kenny Cooper scored his 11th goal of the season during the second half Wednesday, lifting Red Bull New York into a 1-1 tie with Chivas USA.

New York dominated the action, but saw its five-game winning streak halted. Chivas USA is unbeaten in its last three games after going through a three-game losing streak.

Juan Pablo Angel scored on a volley to give Chivas USA a lead early in the second half.

New York almost won it in the 83rd minute when Dax McCarty beat goalkeeper Dan Kennedy with a header, but the ball was swept off the line by defender Ante Jazic.
