The New York Red Bulls played to a draw against Houston Dynamo in their second Desert Diamond Cup match, 2-2.

New York's starting lineup featured two MLS players, one SuperDraft pick, four trialists, three USL players and one academy player.

Houston found the breakthrough in the 35th minute, when Andrew Wenger's cross was finished at the back post by Mauro Manotas. The Dynamo doubled their lead moments later when Jalil Anibaba headed in a free kick.

At halftime, the Red Bulls introduced eight substitutes. Following the changes, Red Bulls academy player Omir Fernandez scored his first goal for the senior team in the 65th minute, taking advantage of a mistimed back-pass in the penalty box.

Minutes later, Fernandez helped create the tying goal, when his shot rang off the post and fell to trialist Lucas Terci, who finished the rebound to tie the game.
