Andre Blake made eight saves in a sensational performance as the Philadelphia Union and New York Red Bulls played to a 0-0 draw Sunday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.

The Jamaican international was especially huge in the first half, three times denying Gonzalo Veron and also diving to his right to push aside a shot by Derrick Etienne en route to seven first-half saves.

In search of a winning goal, Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch called on Sacha Kljestan and Bradley Wright-Phillips in the second half. The home side came close in the 71st minute when Kljestan was chipped into the box by Connor Lade, but the Red Bulls captain was unable to find Alex Muyl at the back post.

Six minutes later, Blake parried away a Kljestan free kick and then kicked out to deny Wright-Phillips on the doorstep for arguably his best save on the day.
