New York Red Bulls II opened the 2017 USL season with a 3-3 draw on the road to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

Their title defense got off to a fast start as returning playmaker Florian Valot scored quickly in the sixth minute off a cheeky assist from Red Bulls loanee Arun Basuljevic.

The Riverhounds didn't stay behind for long as former Red Bulls player Corey Hertzog beat Red Bulls II keeper Rafael Diaz to a 50/50 ball and tapped one in to equalize.

Newly signed Red Bulls II player Andrew Tinari made his professional debut assisting on a Vincent Bezecourt left-footed strike that beat the Pittsburgh keeper in the 16th minute.

Riverhounds captain Kevin Kerr tied things back up before the half as he toe poked a shot past Diaz.

In the 76th minute, Red Bulls academy product Ben Mines drew a penalty inside the box taken down from behind by a Pittsburgh defender. Bezecourt promptly stepped up to the spot and buried one into the back of the net to reclaim the lead.

That lead wouldn't last long as Hassan Ndam was called for a penalty in the box three minutes later. Hertzog would be denied on his first attempt, and nearly was denied again on the rebound, but the ball slipped underneath the body of Diaz.
