HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored on a penalty kick in the first half and the New York Red Bulls tied the Colorado Rapids 1-1 on Wednesday night to remain MLS's only undefeated team.

Wright-Phillips headed a cross just wide in the third minute of stoppage time and New York (3-0-4) settled for its second straight 1-1 draw. Colorado (1-2-5) also was coming off a 1-1 tie.

Colorado's Gabriel Torres scored on a glancing header of Dillon Powers' free kick in the 25th minute. Powers has an assist in four straight games.

New York tied it 5 minutes later on Wright-Phillips' PK after Sacha Kljestan was taken down in the box. Goalkeeper Clint Irwin chose the right side of the goal to defend the PK, but Wright-Phillips' shot had too much pace on it.
