Felipe Martins’ goal-line block on Michael Barrios’ shot in the 72nd minute of play helped the New York Red Bulls play FC Dallas to a scoreless draw Friday night at Toyota Stadium.
Barrios, who came on in relief of reigning MLS rookie of the year Tesho Akindele in the 59th minute, found open space to the left of Luis Robles and bent a shot that cleanly beat the New York keeper.
But the Brazilian midfielder, positioned on the goal line, made the save.
Bradley Wright-Phillips took a cross from Chris Duvall in the middle of the box in extra time, but his header was smothered by Dallas keeper Dan Kennedy.
FCD earned its first shutout since March 28 against Seattle.
The draw snapped FC Dallas’ four-game winning streak. The Red Bulls (4-1-5) have three wins and a draw in five visits to Frisco and continued their dominance in the series.
New York is 5-1-3 in its past nine games with Dallas.
FC Dallas (6-2-3) next heads north of the border for a game against the Montreal Impact on May 23 at 7 p.m.
