On the one hand, to get a point away is always valuable, on the other hand there is the regret for not being able to bring home the three points. New York City FC did not disappoint the first game of the season. Strong start of the Blues who after the first half were ahead of two goals. First seasonal goal of Ofori, and doubling of Alex Ring, to his first goal as new captain of New York.

A game that had been addressed in the right way, but then in the second half here are the two goals taken for the final 2-2. In the middle, the clamorous opportunity happened to Maxi Moralez who could close the game and assign the three points to New York. Unfortunately, at the end, New York City returns home with a positive point.

On the occasion of the first away game of the season, New York City FC managed to show good things and big improvements compared to a rather disappointing preseason. It remains the regret because the victory seemed within the reach of the Blues. However, it is a good point on a difficult field and against a team that just a few days ago had beaten the Torrent team in the last preseason games.

New York City FC will return to play next Sunday, the first match at Yankee Stadium against DC United. That will be a game where the Torrent team will have to conquer all the stakes.
