A stoppage-time goal from substitute Eric Avila helped FC Dallas steal a point from the visiting Columbus Crew in a 2-2 tie at Pizza Hut Park on Saturday. Jeff Cunningham opened the scoring for Dallas before Adam Moffat and Guillermo Barros Schelotto tallied for Columbus.

Cunningham’s goal came on a penalty kick after Dave Ferreira was taken down inside the area by Danny O’Rourke.

Moffat’s first goal of the year drew the game even in the 52nd minute. Steven Lenhart received a nice feed from Frankie Hejduk and sent a great pass to Moffat, who quickly knocked it into the left side of the net to tie the game.

Schelotto’s second goal of 2010 came after a penalty kick he took was stopped by Kevin Hartman in the 82nd. The Crew was awarded the kick after FCD center back George John took Chad Marshall down inside the box on a corner kick. Schelotto’s spot kick was stopped by Hartman, but the Crew forward headed the rebound into the right side of the goal to make it 2-1.

But FC Dallas was not through. After Ferreira was denied near post by Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer, the ball popped back into the midfield and appeared to strike Avila’s hand. No call was made by the referees, and Avila struck a low shot that caromed off the far post and into the net for the equalizer.

GAME NOTES

* Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s goal was the 26th of his MLS career and Adam Moffat’s was his fourth.

* Danny O’Rourke was assessed a red card in the late moments, following the controversial non-call and tying goal, and will be suspended for the Crew’s next game on April 24 against Real Salt Lake.

The Crew Soccer Academy 17/18 squad continued its recent success with another impressive performance last Saturday (March 27), as it defeated the U.S. Under-17 National Team, 3-1, at Crew Stadium prior to the first team’s 2-0 victory over Toronto FC in First Kick 2010.

After neither side was able to break through in the match’s first half hour, CSA drew first blood thanks to Matt Walker’s strike in the 32nd minute.  The Crew then doubled its lead shortly thereafter on a Kyle Culbertson penalty-kick goal in the 38th minute.  The U.S.  U-17′s cut the Crew’s lead in half  just before intermission on a tally by Kelly Gully in the 44th minute.  However, the Black and Gold would extend its lead early in the second half, when Will Walker struck in the 6oth minute to give the Crew the eventual 3-1 victory.

Saturday afternoon the Crew’s senior team defeated Toronto FC, 2-0 in the MLS opener for both teams.  Andy Iro scored in the first half and Guillermo Barros Schelotto scored in the second half to power the Crew in the Trillium Cup matchup.

The win gives Columbus a 3 points to zero lead in the 2010 Trillium Cup competition.  The second leg will be played at BMO Field in Toronto on October 16.

Columbus will enjoy a weekend off from MLS play, although it will still be in action as the Crew will host a doubleheader of exhibitions against college teams this Friday, April 2, at Crew Stadium.  The action kicks off at 10 a.m., when the Black and Gold will go up against Marshall University and Bartosz Warzycha, a Thundering Herd forward and the son of Crew head coach Robert Warzycha.  Then the Crew will play a match against the Michigan State Spartans at 12 noon.  Both matches are free and open to the public.

GAME NOTES
* Crew forward Guillermo Barros Schelotto scored his 25th career regular season goal in the Black and Gold’s 2-0 win over Toronto FC last Saturday in Crew Stadium.  Schelotto put the game away for Columbus in the 87th minute after pouncing on a loose ball at the top of the Toronto penalty box and sent a shot in the back of the net.  Since joining the Crew in 2007 from the storied Argentine Club Boca Juniors, Schelotto has been one of the finest attacking players in the MLS, earning both league and MLS Cup MVP honors, along with two MLS Best XI selections, while accumulating 27 goals and 40 assists in 79 regular-season and playoff games.
