Crew gets past arch-rival Chicago 2-1; retains first place in East

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The game of soccer is strange game at times. Two teams trying to get a big ball past a goalkeeper can be difficult at times and frustrating. Teams can go games at a time and don’t score a goal and play to a tie.

On Saturday night at Crew Stadium, everybody witnessed a strange occurance in the last 4 minutes of the first half. Up until that point, the first 42 minutes there were no goals. But for the next four minutes, 43-47 which included stoppage time, the game was won by Columbus, although at the time, we had no way of knowing that.

On the Crew’s first goal, Guillermo Barros Schelotto spotted Jason Garey cutting through the traffic and into the penalty area and hit him perfectly with a pass. Garey touched the ball but Fire goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra came out of the goal to smother the ball to freeze it to get a goal kick. But he couldn’t hold it cleanly and Adam Moffat poked the ball away and put it into the empty net in the 43rd minute for goal number two of the season for midfielder from Scotland.

The crowd of 14,017 were still celebrating when the Chicago Fire got the ball and headed down the field towards the Crew goal. and their midfielder Baggio Husidic sent a hard serve to the far post and Crew captain Frankie Hejduk trying to get back and defend the goal and help goalkeeper Will Hesmer accidentally headed the ball into the goal for an “own goal.” The crowd was shocked as the game was tied at 1-1.

Now we are in the stoppage time and the scoring was not done yet.

The Crew’s Eddie Gaven and Schelotto executive the old give-and-go along the left touchline. Gaven dribbled between two defenders and sent the ball on a flight to the goal area. Jason Garey, slipped in front of  Chicago defender Krzysztof Krol and behind defender Wilman Conde for a diving header in the second minute of  stoppage time and it was 2-1 Columbus Crew and that was the game-winner.

The Crew has won two straight games since the World Cup break ended to improve overall to 8-2-3 (27 points) and a three-point lead in the Eastern Conference over New York. The Red Bulls play at Colorado on Sunday July 4.
