Crew SC lays an egg in playoff chase with 3-0 loss at Montreal

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF COLUMBUS CREW SC COMMUNICATIONS

 

Columbus Crew SC traveled to face the Montreal Impact in a Saturday afternoon showdown. The Black & Gold lost to the Impact 3-0.

The first half saw no shortage of action, with each side level in possession. Columbus recorded four shots on goal in the first half but could not get past Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush. A hand ball penalty called on defender Josh Williams gave Montreal the opportunity to find the first score of the match. Goalkeeper Zack Steffen recorded six saves on the day, even with the final score.

Montreal’s Saphir Taïder stepped up to the penalty line in the 32nd minute and converted to put Montreal on the board, 1-0. Just four minutes later, Columbus’ Gyasi Zardes found himself in front of the net and headed a ball towards Bush for a potential equalizer but was ultimately denied. Montreal then doubled their lead in the 45th minute.

In the 59th minute, Montreal struck again, bringing the score to 3-0. The best chance for Columbus came in the 81st minute from midfielder Mike Grella. Grella struck high, making Montreal’s Bush reach for the save. Columbus tallied an additional five shots on target in the second half but the final push was unable to be found. Despite the result, Columbus out-shot Montreal 14 to 13 and out-posessed the Impact, 55 percent to 45 percent.
