FROM THE GAMEĀ NOTES:

* The Crew Juniors Super 20 will be making a return trip to the USL Super 20 League finals with a win in their Midwest Division finale, a 4-1 decision over the Dayton Dutch Lions on July 7.

The Super 20s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished the regular season on top of their division with a record of 8-0-1 and 25 points.

The USL super 20 League Finals will take place July 21-24 in Tampa, Florida. The Crew will be looking to repeat as national champions.

* Andres Mendoza recorded his first MLS assist on Wednesday, June 8, against Real Salt Lake. The milestone was also the team’s 750th all-time. The first ever assist was recovered by Brian McBride in the Crew’s inaugural game at Ohio Stadium on April 14, 1996 against DC United.

* Gahanna Lincoln and Crew Soccer Academy standout Chris Davis traveled with the Crew to Montclair, New Jersey for the MLS Reserve Division match against New York on Monday, May 30. Davis came on as a substitute in the 68th minute, replacing recently signed Home Grown Player Aaron Horton, and proceded to score two goals in the 6-1 game.

The two goals brings Davis’ total to three as he had previously scored the game-winner in the 2-1 Toronto FC match.

* The Crew Juniors U19s, who won last year’s McGuire Cup National Championship, the final step of the 2010 US Youth National Championship Series, were unable to get past the 2011 US Youth Region II finals last June 24-25, despite drawing two games and winning one.

The U19s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished second in their group with five points after drawing the St. Croix Devils in Minnesota 1-1 with a goal by KofiĀ  Agyapong, beating Illinois 3-2 with goals from Tyler Ranali, William Walker and Alexander Obbey and drawing the Des Moines Menace 1-1 with a goal from Matthew Walker.

Renteria leads Crew to Champions League win over Joe Public

Emilio Renteria (MLS)

Emilio Renteria scored two goals in the second half to lead the Columbus Crew over Joe Public Thursday night in Macoya, Trinidad.

The game was a Champions League group stage finale match.

The win by the Crew had no outcome on the Champions League standings on either team. Santos Laguna of Mexico beat Municipal of Guatemala 6-1 Tuesday night which guaranteed the Crew at 4-2 would finish second in Group B and advance to the quarterfinals for a second consecutive season.

Joe Public (0-5-1) finished last in Group B.

The Crew’s other scorers included Andres Mendoza who scored the first goal and Duncan Oughton scored a goal in the second half stoppage time.

GAME NOTES:

* The Crew earned four more points in this year’s Group Stage than in 2009 (8), when it also advanced in play.

* Josh Williams, a September signee, made his second CCL start.

* Former Crew player and Trinidadian Ansil Elcock was in attendance for the match.

* Columbus returns to action this Sunday, October 24, when it closes out the regular season against the Philadelphia Union at Crew Stadium. The Match starts at 4 p.m. and will be televised regionally on ONN-TV.

* The Crew returns to 2010/2011 CONCACAF Champions League action in February 2011, when the quarterfinal stage kicks off.

* The Crew cannot win the 2010 MLS Eastern Conference championship. The New York Red Bulls beat the New England Revolution 2-0 Thursday night. That win puts a four-point separation between the teams and the Crew has won game left.
