HOUSTON, May 21 (UPI) -- Mehdi Ballouchy scored in stoppage time Saturday and the New York Red Bulls salvaged a 2-2 tie with Houston.

Ballouchy found the net in the 91st minute, scoring on a powerful header off a corner kick from Joel Lindpere to give the Red Bulls a point in a game they seemed destined to lose.

New York (4-2-4) took an early lead in the 1st minute when striker Luke Rodgers played a ball back to Dane Richards, who blasted a one-timer past goalkeeper Tally Hall.

But the Dynamo (3-3-5) got the equalizer in the 12th minute on a penalty kick from Brad Davis, who was awarded the shot when Houston striker Will Bruin was tackled by New York's Rafael Marquez.
