Ghana Midfielder Ebenezer Ofori scored first for New York City FC in their first MLS match of the season in a 2-2 draw at Orlando City on Saturday.
The Black Stars midfielder powerfully unleashed a well-struck powerful left-footer low grounder on 13 minutes to beat goalkeeper Brian Rowe who was troubled in the posts.
The visitors doubled their lead through Alexander Ring on the 43rd minute to go into recess with a 2-0 lead.
After the break, Orlando City came back into the game when Christopher Muellar scored a brilliant free-kick to pull one back for the home side.
With a quarter of an hour left for play, Canadian Tesho Akindele levelled for the home team inside the Orlando City Stadium.
Ofori, who has been re-signed again on loan from German side Stuttgart, enjoyed full throttle of the game.
