The New York Red Bulls should have been awarded two penalties that were not given in Sunday's 2-2 draw at the LA Galaxy, MLS vice president Jeff Agoos says.
Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch was sent to the stands for arguing that Galaxy keeper Brian Rowe brought down both Alex Muyl and Gonzalo Veron in the box in the second half, but referee Hilario Grajeda did not blow his whistle either time.
Agoos said both calls were missed and that the league had told Professional Referee Organization (PRO) of their concerns.
"We reviewed the New York-LA game and concluded that there had been two missed penalty kick calls late in the game," Agoos told MLSsoccer.com.
"In addition, the Disciplinary Committee also determined that the foul by Jeff Larentowicz merited a one-game suspension."
Larentowicz was retroactively banned for a tackle that injured Red Bulls defender Damien Perrinelle, even though he was not issued a card on the play.
Next season, MLS will experiment with video replays to help referees, and Agoos said they "would have allowed for the review of these non-calls" in this situation.
