HOUSTON (AP) — Brad Davis scored on a penalty kick in the 82nd minute in his first game back from the World Cup to give the Houston Dynamo a 2-2 tie with the New York Red Bulls on Friday night.

Houston (5-10-3) ended a club-record five game losing streak.

Davis was awarded the penalty kick after New York's Chris Duvall was whistled for a handball.

Houston's Giles Barnes opened the scoring in the first minute, heading home Kofi Sarkodie's cross to end the Dynamo's goal drought at 479 minutes.

New York (4-5-8) tied it in the 13th minute when Bradley Wright-Phillips ran down a long ball from Eric Alexander and put home a one-touch effort. Wright-Phillips made it 2-1 in the 72nd with his MLS-leading 14th goal of the season, redirecting a cross from Ambroise Oyongo Bitolo.

FC DALLAS 2, UNION 1

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Tesho Akindele had an early goal and FC Dallas got the go-ahead score on Philadelphia's own goal.

FC Dallas (7-7-5) took the lead in the 49th minute when Philadelphia (4-8-6) misplayed a clearance inside the box. Fabinho deflected the ball off a helpless Sheanon Williams.

Akindele opened the scoring in the 26th minute, one-timed a straight-ahead chip from Blas Perez. The Union tied it just before halftime when Amobi Okugo punched in a low finish off Cristian Maidana's cross.
