Another former member of the Columbus Crew scored a goal to beat his ex-mates.

Former Dublin Scioto High School, Ohio State and Crew defender Eric Brunner scored in the first minute of the second half, to lead the expansion Portland Timbers to a 1-0 win over Columbus Saturday night in Portland, Oregon.

Portland improved to 3-0 in Jeld-Wen Field and is the only MLS team without a loss or tie at home.

Brunner was left unprotected by the Crew and was selected by the timbers (5-3-2) in the expansion draft last year.

The Crew (3-3-4) failed to score in the first half for the 10th straight game, setting a Major League Soccer record.

Columbus has lost two games in a row for the first time all season.

MLS Expansion Draft claims Brunner & Moffat from the Crew

It seems like everyday we pick up a newspaper, listen to the radio, watch the television or open up our e-mails, in the latter case for members of the media, the Columbus Crew are losing members of the team.

They’ve made more headlines in this off-season than when they won the MLS Cup two years ago.

Recently, they lost defender Eric Brunner and midfielder Adam Moffat, who were selected by the Portland Timbers in the MLS expansion draft.

The Crew has 15 roster spots to fill to get back to 30 players by the time they play Real Salt Lake in a Champions League quarterfinals match on February 22, which is a scant 12 weeks away.

Crew management were very surprised that the both Brunner and Moffat were selected because expansion teams have a salary budget of $2.67 million which is augmented by the league allocation money and could sign a couple of star players.

Both Brunner and Moffat are 24 years old and not considered star players, but are solid role players.

Brunner started 36 games the past two seasons. The graduate of Dublin Scioto High School in Dublin, Ohio and former Ohio State soccer player was acquired from the New York Red Bulls just before the 2009 season.

Moffat, who married the sister of teammate Steven Lenhart last year, started 36 games in four seasons with the Crew.  He played in 24 games this past season after three injury-plagued seasons. He scored five goals and had one assist in his years with the team.

One bright note, Leandre Griffit, was eligible to enter the MLS waiver draft, but the Crew did not make him available. The team is trying to re-sign the French midfielder, who is a goal-scorer and showed alot of promise after the team brought him in during the spring. They’re trying to get a salary for him which is less than what his option year contract called for.

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS: Hardesty steps down at Dublin Scioto

compiled from staff reports

Ohio High School Athletic Association

After stints as the Dublin Scioto High School girls basketball coach, Todd Hardesty announced his resignation a few weeks ago to spend time with his three daughters who play the game.

The 43-year-old Hardesty leaves Scioto with a Division I district championship and regional final appearance in 2007, five Ohio Capital Conference titles and a record of 166-124.

Hardesty was hired in 1995 when the school opened and left in 2000 after a string of losing seasons. He returned in 2002 and turned the program into one of the area’s best with an undefeated regular season (20-0) in 2006-2007 when the team finished atop the state poll. That year the Irish fell to Pickerington North 52-42 in a regional final.

This past season, Scioto went 15-6 overall and failed to reach a district semifinal for the first time since 2003-2004 following the 44-39 loss to Pickerington Central in the Division I tournament.

A group of five Green and White seniors will graduate Scioto with four consecutive OCC championships and a program record of 75-11.
