The past two weeks, the Columbus Crew team has come alive in all fronts in winning by scores of 2-0 twice.

Two of the reasons for their success has been the play of Bernardo Anor and Justin Meram, who have been getting the ball to scorer Federico Higuain.

After Thursday’s practice, head coach Robert Warzycha said that neither would make the trip to Real Salt Lake due to injuries suffered last weekend vs. Toronto FC.

Also not making the trip west is goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.

Meram suffered a back injury after a hard fall and Anor is dealing with fatigue issues and soreness in his right hamstring.

MLS selects Crew rookie Bernardo Anor Player of the Week

Columbus Crew forward Bernardo Anor was voted MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters on Monday. The award caps a fantastic weekend in which he made his first MLS start and scored a goal and registered an assist.

Anor was a key player in the Crew’s 2-0 road win over the Houston Dynamo. His dynamic assist on Andres Mendoza’s first-half goal opened the scoring, then he buried an insurance goal late in the game that clinched Columbus’ first-ever win at Robertson Stadium.

Anor was selected in the third round (#48 overall) of the 2011 Major League Soccer SuperDraft and is a product of the University of South Florida. He has appeared in three MLS Reserve matches, scoring two goals and two assists, and had previously played 26 minutes as a substitute in the 0-0 draw against the New York Red Bulls on March 26.

Rookie Anor leads Crew to 2-0 win over Houston

The Columbus Crew, after dumping several high-priced and popular veterans during the off-season, have seen their younger players prove why the team decided to invest in them instead.

Missing four midfielders due to injuries and international duty, Columbus turned to third-round draft pick Bernardo Anor by giving him his first Major League Soccer start against the Houston Dynamo Saturday night.

It was a wise move by the coaching staff.

Anor earned his first MLS  goal and assist in a 2-0 win over the Dynamo in front of 13,089. The victory gave the Crew its first road win of the season and first win in Houston in six tries.

Andres Mendoza gave the Crew (5-4-6, 21 points) a 1-0 lead in the 41st minute after receiving a pass from Anor behind the Houston defenders and sent a line drive into the lower right net inside the near post from the top of the box.

The Dynamo (4-6-6, 18 points) had to play from the 52nd minute after Lionel Palmer was given his second yellow card.

The Crew took advantage as Anor made it 2-0 in the 77th minute after his shot from the left box toward the far post was saved by Houston’s goalkeeper, Tally Hall. But Hall couldn’t stop the ball, which bounced back to Anor, and he connected on a shot just inside the far post on the upper right corner.

Anor, had missed the past three games because of a left ankle sprain. He had played in three reserve league games this season, showing potential by scoring two goals and two assists. He also played 26 MLS minutes before the Houston game.

(courtesy of MLS)

The Columbus Crew came back from its 2-1 loss to the New England Revolution last Sunday with a convincing 3-1 win over the same team in a rematch at KSU Soccer Stadium for the inaugural game of the Atlanta Pro Soccer Challenge in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Crew forward Tommy Heinemann scored two goals and rookie Bernardo Anor had one goal and one assist while Ilija Stoica tallied the lone Revolution goal.

The Crew began the first half sizing up the opposition with a couple of early looks including a header by defender Julius James early on. In the 16th minute a free kick by Robbie Rogers found rookie midfielder Anor in the box who proceded to slot the ball to the right of Revolution goal keeper Matt Reis.

One minute later Tommy Heinemann took advantage of a bad clearance by A.J. Soares and chipped the ball over Reis from 20 yards out for the 2-0 lead.

The Crew in the second half found the back of the net agains with Heinemann’s second goal assisted by Anor in the 53rd minute.

The Revolution got a goal back nine minutes later when forward Zack Schilawski sent a through-ball to Ilija Stoica who beat Crew goaltender Alex Riggs for the 3-1 margin.

Before the game, Meram and fellow SuperDraft picks Rich Balchan, Cole Grossman and Bernardo Anor were signed to contracts.
