Oduro's late goal gives Impact 1-1 tie with NYCFC

NEW YORK — Dominic Oduro scored in the opening seconds of stoppage time and the Montreal Impact escaped with a 1-1 draw against New York City FC on Wednesday night.

Montreal (4-3-1) earned a free kick along the right sideline in the 90th minute and Didier Drogba sent the ball into the box. Two Impact players broke free, with Oduro getting his head on the ball and sending it just inside the post for his third goal.

New York City (1-3-4) took the lead in the 51st minute on a great buildup that led to RJ Allen's first goal. Allen, a New Jersey native, carried the ball inside midfield and sent it wide right to Khiry Shelton. Shelton one-touched it into the box and Thomas McNamara touched it back to the charging Allen for a shot inside the far post.

Montreal's late goal ran NYC's winless streak to seven games.
