Mike Petke: First MLS Goal

We kick off Petke Week with this video of his first MLS Goal.  The tally came on on June 24, 1998 against New England, and the game-winner came in the 69th minute.  The strike was voted the team’s Goal of the Year.

Watch this video and more on the NewYorkRedBulls.com official video player.

    Mike Petke is a true NY soccer legend. I only wish he could have won MLS Cup with the Red Bulls to cap off a fantastic career on the pitch. What a great idea to honor him on Saturday.

    OMG…MIKE…Those were the days! The hair, seeing Chingy, watching you practice and you never wore the same # jersey with the same # pants! I have the pics to prove it! Timmy was soooo young! The only thing missing is the Metro’s Yellow Taxi entering the stadium! Thanks for the memories!
