POSTGAME NOTES: Houston Dynamo 2 Columbus Crew 2


COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Crew made a lineup change and it resulted in much-improved play in their 2-2 draw with the Houston Dynamo at Crew Stadium on Saturday night before 10,479 fans who braved cloudy, chilly conditions.

The Crew received both goals off the foot of Eddie Gaven in the 63rd and 74th minutes.

The Dynamo had goals from Will Bruin in the 59th and Brian Ching in the 81st.

Both teams earned a point. The Dynamo are 2-1-2 on the season with 8 points, good for 4th place in the Eastern Conference. The Crew are 2-3-1 with 7 points for an uncharacteristic 6th place in the East. The Crew came into the game with two lackluster losses in a row to New York and Philadelphia.

Physical match between Crew and Houston end in scoreless draw

Info courtesy of the Columbus Crew

The Columbus Crew maintained their lead atop the Eastern Conference and extended the Houston Dynamo’s winless streak to six league games as both teams played to a defensive stalemate that ended scoreless at Robertson Stadium in Houston, Texas Saturday night.

The game went quick, 1 hour 50 minutes and the attendance was 13,486.

The first half was a physical contest with Crew center backs Chad Marshall and Andy Iro battling Houston forwards Brian Ching and Cam Weaver. Both teams failed to create many scoring opportunities with only one shot on goal for each squad.

The defensive struggle continued into the second half with the best opportunities for both sides falling in a two-minute span. Houston sub Brian Mullan laid a ball into the path of Weaver in the 80th minute, but the forward’s blast went just inches wide of the goal.

Just two minutes later, the Crew almost took the lead for itself, Robbie Rogers fed the ball across the Houston box and found second half sub forward Steven Lenhart open at the far post. As Lenhart lined up an open shot on goal, Dynamo defender Mike Chabala came out of nowhere and made a sprawling block on Lenhart’s effort.

The Crew returns home to Crew Stadium this week for a pair of MLS matches. They welcome Kansas City to town on Wednesday July 14 at 7:30 p.m. on Bob Evans Buck-a-Brat Night. The Crew will then host the New York Red Bulls on Saturday July 17 at 7:30 p.m. in a matchup of the Eastern Conference’s top two teams. Both matches will be broadcast live regionally on ONN-TV.
