Goalkeepers shine in 0-0 tie between Crew, Quakes


San Jose goalkeeper and Columbus Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer both made several important saves in preserving a 0-0 tie at Crew Stadium on Saturday night.

There was a crowd of 14,109 in attendance for the exciting game.

Busch, a former Crew player, made six saves and the Earthquakes (5-6-8) saw their winless streak stretch to six games, where they are (0-2-4).

Hesmer collected five saves for the Crew (7-5-7), who in their past seven games have four wins, two losses and a tie.

Hesmer earned his second straight shutout and seventh of the season.

With the tie on Saturday night, the Crew with 28 points, tied New York and Philadelphia for first place in the MLS Eastern Conference.

San Jose was shutout for the fifth time in six games.


* The Crew Juniors Super 20 will be making a return trip to the USL Super 20 League finals with a win in their Midwest Division finale, a 4-1 decision over the Dayton Dutch Lions on July 7.

The Super 20s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished the regular season on top of their division with a record of 8-0-1 and 25 points.

The USL super 20 League Finals will take place July 21-24 in Tampa, Florida. The Crew will be looking to repeat as national champions.

* Andres Mendoza recorded his first MLS assist on Wednesday, June 8, against Real Salt Lake. The milestone was also the team’s 750th all-time. The first ever assist was recovered by Brian McBride in the Crew’s inaugural game at Ohio Stadium on April 14, 1996 against DC United.

* Gahanna Lincoln and Crew Soccer Academy standout Chris Davis traveled with the Crew to Montclair, New Jersey for the MLS Reserve Division match against New York on Monday, May 30. Davis came on as a substitute in the 68th minute, replacing recently signed Home Grown Player Aaron Horton, and proceded to score two goals in the 6-1 game.

The two goals brings Davis’ total to three as he had previously scored the game-winner in the 2-1 Toronto FC match.

* The Crew Juniors U19s, who won last year’s McGuire Cup National Championship, the final step of the 2010 US Youth National Championship Series, were unable to get past the 2011 US Youth Region II finals last June 24-25, despite drawing two games and winning one.

The U19s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished second in their group with five points after drawing the St. Croix Devils in Minnesota 1-1 with a goal by Kofi  Agyapong, beating Illinois 3-2 with goals from Tyler Ranali, William Walker and Alexander Obbey and drawing the Des Moines Menace 1-1 with a goal from Matthew Walker.

Crew gets shutout by San Jose

The Columbus Crew are without a doubt one of Major League Soccer’s top defensive teams. But in Saturday’s game at San Jose, you would not have thought so.

The Crew defense had so many leaks in it that the Earthquakes scored three times and won 3-0 in Santa Clara, California.

The Crew lost out on their chance to move into first place in the Eastern Conference but allowed three goals in 12 minutes in the second half and suffered their first 3-goal defeat since a 4-0 loss to visiting Seattle on September 18, 2010.

San Jose ups its record to 2-4-3 while the Crew drops to 3-2-4.

San Jose was winless in its previous seven games while the Crew had their seven game unbeaten string snapped.

The Crew struggled to score in the first half for the ninth straight game, which ties the Houston Dynamo’s 2007 MLS record for consecutive scoreless first halves to start the season.

San Jose received goals from Chris Wondoloswki (50th minute), Steven Lenhart ( 59th) and Khari Stephenson.

The Columbus Crew rebounded from its lone loss of the season last Saturday to secure a 2-2 draw with San Jose Wednesday night in a very lively match at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Columbus came out strong and in the fourth minute, right back Jed Zayner’s cross fell at the feet of Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who held off two defenders and put a shot on goal. Joe Cannon pushed the rebound aside, but the ball scooted to Jason Garey in the goal area, who centered the ball to his right to an uncovered Eddie Gaven for the easy tap in.

The Earthquakes would equalize leass than a minute later. San Jose’s Andre Luis came up with the loose ball on the right side and push a pass to midfielder Arturo Alvarez, who hit a low, hard shot that just beat Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer at the near post.

In the 70th minute, the Crew regained the lead when Schelotto’s corner kick found the head of Chad Marshall, who jumped above a crowd of players and headed home his first goal of the season.

In the 79th minute, San Jose would again respond with a tying goal when Bobby Convey’s corner kick found Scott Sealy, who then headed the ball across the goal to Chris Mondolowski, who headed it home for his sixth goal of the season.

The Crew is now 6-1-3 (21 pts) on the season and is still unbeaten on the road (2-0-3).
