On Thursday, Jeff Agoos, MLS's vice president of competition, told MLSsoccer.com that the league office agreed with Marsch that referee
Hilario Grajeda missed the calls.
“We reviewed the New York-LA game and concluded that there had been two missed penalty kick calls late in the game,” said Agoos.
On the first play, Galaxy keeper Brian Rowe collided with Red Bulls rookie Alex Muyl in the penalty area in the 85th minute. On the second play five minutes later, Rowe tripped up Argentine Gonzalo Veron.

Agoos' comments were a rare admission by the league office, as noted by MLSsoccer.com, that bad calls were made and they back the league's case for video review, which he said, “would have allowed for the review of these non-calls.”
One decision to come out of the game was that Galaxy midfielder Jeff Larentowicz was suspended for one game for a challenge that left Red Bulls French defender Damien Perrinelle with an ankle injury that will sideline him for 4-6 weeks.
FRIDAY UPDATE: MLS has received approval from the IFAB to conduct Video Assistant Referee experiments in select competitive matches during the remainder of the USL regular season.
