Thierry Henry's marker earned a tie for the Red Bulls after they fell behind Real Salt Lake.

SANDY, Utah (AP) — Thierry Henry scored on a shot to the lower right corner in the 57th minute to help the New York Red Bulls rally for a 1-1 tie with Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night.

New York (5-6-10) has played to five draws in its last eight matches. Real Salt Lake (8-4-9) remained second in the Western Conference.

Real Salt Lake opened the scoring in the 18th minute on Joao Plata's goal. Chris Wingert settled a blocked shot and sent a ball inside the box to Plata for a right-footed shot.

Real Salt Lake's Chris Schuler missed on a close-range header in the 71st minute. It was blocked on the goal line by midfielder Ambroise Oyongo Bitolo, who was guarding the near post.

Bradley Wright-Phillips' five-game scoring streak was snapped for New York.
