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.

During this past winter, fans, media and followers of the Columbus Crew were thinking this would be a rebuilding season with the team releasing and trading away so many veterans.

I guess the management knew what they were doing as the team is still an MLS Cup contender.

The Crew, the best second-half team in Major League Soccer this season, proved its resiliency again on Saturday night, overcoming a goal by Benny Feilhaber in the 45th minute of the first half and scored three of its own in the second half for a 3-1 victory over the New England Revolution at Crew Stadium.

The Crew (10-7-7, 37 points) remained on top of the Eastern Conference with the win, and improved to an impressive 2-0-4 record when trailing at the half this season.

Second-place Philadelphia (8-5-10, 34 points) played FC Dallas to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Crew and the Philadelphia Union will battle next Saturday, August 20 at Crew Stadium for first-place.

The Revs, a team the Crew used to have trouble with game-after-game in years past, dropped to 4-11-9.

An own goal off the shin of New England defender Kevin Alston in the 54th minute opened the Crew’s scoring.

Julius James earned his first goal of the season in the 75th minute on a header off a corner kick from Josh Gardner.

Emilio Renteria easily scored his fifth goal of the season in the 81st minute on an unmarked finish from six yards out after midfielder Robbie Rogers set up the goal.

GAME NOTES:

* The Crew are 7-1-4 at home this season.

* James’ goal was his first in Black & Gold and the fourth of his career.

* Dilly Duka made his first appearance since June 4. His assist was his third of the season.

* The game-tying goal own goal was the club’s 700th in franchise history. The Crew is the fourth MLS team to score 700 goals joining DC United, the LA Galaxy and FC Dallas.

* A nice crowd attended the game, 13,041 under partly cloudy skies and 83 degrees.

Columbus Crew beats New England in preseason action, 3-1

(courtesy of MLS)

The Columbus Crew came back from its 2-1 loss to the New England Revolution last Sunday with a convincing 3-1 win over the same team in a rematch at KSU Soccer Stadium for the inaugural game of the Atlanta Pro Soccer Challenge in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Crew forward Tommy Heinemann scored two goals and rookie Bernardo Anor had one goal and one assist while Ilija Stoica tallied the lone Revolution goal.

The Crew began the first half sizing up the opposition with a couple of early looks including a header by defender Julius James early on. In the 16th minute a free kick by Robbie Rogers found rookie midfielder Anor in the box who proceded to slot the ball to the right of Revolution goal keeper Matt Reis.

One minute later Tommy Heinemann took advantage of a bad clearance by A.J. Soares and chipped the ball over Reis from 20 yards out for the 2-0 lead.

The Crew in the second half found the back of the net agains with Heinemann’s second goal assisted by Anor in the 53rd minute.

The Revolution got a goal back nine minutes later when forward Zack Schilawski sent a through-ball to Ilija Stoica who beat Crew goaltender Alex Riggs for the 3-1 margin.
