Crew heads to Utah without injured Meram, Anor, Gruenebaum

The past two weeks, the Columbus Crew team has come alive in all fronts in winning by scores of 2-0 twice.

Two of the reasons for their success has been the play of Bernardo Anor and Justin Meram, who have been getting the ball to scorer Federico Higuain.

After Thursday’s practice, head coach Robert Warzycha said that neither would make the trip to Real Salt Lake due to injuries suffered last weekend vs. Toronto FC.

Also not making the trip west is goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.

Meram suffered a back injury after a hard fall and Anor is dealing with fatigue issues and soreness in his right hamstring.

Cole Grossman scored his first professional goal for the Crew on Tuesday night, but it was not enough as the Richmond Kickers upset Columbus 2-1 in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Quarterfinals.

Matthew Delicate scored on a diving header in the 85th minute to give the Kickers the deciding goal at Crew Stadium.

Richmond, of the USL Pro League, broke through first on a 20-minute strike by Nozomi Hiroyama. Former Crew forward Stanley Nyazamba started the scoring play for Richmond by shoving Dejan Rusmir off the ball and spotted Hiroyama near the top left of the penalty area. Hiroyama curled a shot into the far upper netting from the top-left corner of the box.

Columbus evened the score when Grossman completed a six-pass sequence after receiving a terrific ball from Justin Meram in the 37th minute. Grossman and Meram were among five rookies in the starting lineup for the Crew.

The Crew is now 19-11-1 in Open Cup play and 11-5-1 at home.

The Columbus Crew were trailing for over 70 minutes against Real Salt Lake, one of the MLS’ top defensive teams.

Then, in the span of six minutes, “America’s Hardest Working Team” scored two goals which changed the momentum of the game.

Josh Gardner’s first goal in a Crew uniform lifted Columbus to a thrilling come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake Wednesday night at Crew Stadium. The Crew remained unbeaten at home (4-0-3) and improved to 4-3-6 on the season.

Gardner gave Columbus the lead in the 82nd minute when his shot from 22 yards out hit the left thigh of Real Salt Lake defender Chris Schuler and skipped past goalkeeper Nick Rimando.

The Crew had been trailing when they finally received a break in the 76th minute when Justin Meram was tripped in the box by Jamison Olave and Andres Mendoza converted the penalty kick to tie the game at 1-1.

RSL (6-3-2) had led 1-0 since the 7th minute when Olave scored off a Nelson Gonzalez corner kick.

Columbus Crew sends another fan favorite packing: Steven Lenhart to San Jose

The Columbus Crew, who have some of the most loyal fans in Major League Soccer, have been testing that loyalty this entire off-season.

Once again, the team has gotten rid of a fan favorite in favor of an untested draft choice.

The Crew on Thursday traded forward Steven Lenhart to the San Diego Earthquakes for a first-round SuperDraft pick and allocation money.

The trade helped the Crew acquire Michigan scorer Justin Meram, a prolific scorer who garnered 12 goals in the Wolverines’ final nine games last season.

The key statement about Meram, is he scored those goals in college for Michigan. On the pro level he’d be lucky if he gets to play more less score 12 goals or touch the ball 12 times.

Lenhart was respected around the league because he is a hard-working, tireless, big-bodied menace who is tall at 6’2 and good around the goal.

San Jose offered the Crew the number 15 pick and allocation money of $75,000.
