COLUMBUS – The Crew played its first game of the preseason Wednesday at the IMG Academy Fields in Bradenton, Fla., dropping a 2-1 decision to Malmö FF of Sweden. Crew forward Emilio Renteria struck first before Malmö responded through Mathias Ranegie and Jimmy Durmaz to overturn the deficit in a match that consisted of three 45-minute segments.

The Black & Gold got on the board right away, as Dilly Duka dribbled down the field and took a strong shot on goal in the first minute. Malmö goalkeeper Johan Fahlin made the save, then another on Renteria’s first follow, but the Venezuelan’s second effort found the back of the net.

 

In the 24th minute the Swedes equalized, when midfielder Erik Friberg picked up a rebound off a corner kick cleared by Andy Gruenebaum and found an open Ranegie who proceeded to fire the ball past the Crew keeper. Five minutes later Durmaz volleyed another corner kick clearance past Gruenebaum for a 2-1 lead.

 

Malmö nearly increased its advantage in the 33rd minute, but Duka was quick to clear the ball off the line – and two minutes later he initiated the play that almost resulted in an equalizer. The Crew midfielder brought the ball down the left side and found an open Cole Grossman who barely missed his chance.

 

 

 

Crew manages 1-1 tie against always-tough Seattle Sounders FC

Emilio Renteria scored on a second-half penalty kick allowing the Columbus Crew to tie the Seattle Sounders FC at 1-1 Saturday night at soggy Crew Stadium. The tie also allowed the Crew to move into a second place tie in the Eastern Conference.

Fredy Montero scored in the 7th minute for Seattle.

Montero put the Sounders ahead with a header, an assist from Erik Friberg for his cross from 35 yards to the center of the box. The goal was the fifth off a header this year for Seattle, which leads Major League Soccer in that category.

The Crew (3-1-4) has not lost since the first game, running its unbeaten streak to seven games and it stays undefeated at home (3-0-2). Renteria has scored all four Crew goals in its last three games, and his decisive kick came after Patrick Ianni was whistled for pulling down Chad Marshall on a corner kick by teammate Eddie Gaven.

Half of the Crew’s eight goals this season have come from the penalty shot.
