COLUMBUS, O. — The Columbus Crew over the years have been one of the best home teams in Major League Soccer.

But during the current season, they’ve lost games, tied games while losing points at home. They even went 7 1/2 quarters without scoring a goal before Saturday night’s game.

Trailing the Houston Dynamo, 1-0, the Crew received a break. Chad Barson, making his first start of the season, was hauled down on his way to the goal in the box by Andrew Driver. That meant a penalty kick was in the offering.

Federico Higuain was called on to do his specialty and he tied the game on the penalty kick in the 69th minute to make it 1-1. That goal ended the beforementioned scoring drought at home, 294 minutes. The last goal at home was on April 27 against DC United, also scored by Higuain on a penalty kick.

The Dynamo’s goal was scored by Wayne Creavalle in the 31st minute, his third of the campaign.

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.

MLS selects Crew rookie Bernardo Anor Player of the Week

Columbus Crew forward Bernardo Anor was voted MLS Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters on Monday. The award caps a fantastic weekend in which he made his first MLS start and scored a goal and registered an assist.

Anor was a key player in the Crew’s 2-0 road win over the Houston Dynamo. His dynamic assist on Andres Mendoza’s first-half goal opened the scoring, then he buried an insurance goal late in the game that clinched Columbus’ first-ever win at Robertson Stadium.

Anor was selected in the third round (#48 overall) of the 2011 Major League Soccer SuperDraft and is a product of the University of South Florida. He has appeared in three MLS Reserve matches, scoring two goals and two assists, and had previously played 26 minutes as a substitute in the 0-0 draw against the New York Red Bulls on March 26.

Crew gets shutout by San Jose

(courtesy of MLS)

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.
