Columbus Crew starts season with 7 points in three games after comeback win against Toronto FC, 2-1

Saturday, Mar 12, 2022

Lucas Zelarayan and Derrick Etienne Jr. scored less than 10 minutes apart in the second half as the Columbus Crew defeated Toronto FC 2-1 at Lower.com Field on Saturday afternoon.

The Crew are now unbeaten through their first three matches of the 2022 MLS season (2W-0L-1D), while TFC continue in search of their first victory of the Bob Bradley era (0W-2L-1D).

Toronto opened the scoring after being awarded a corner kick just before the quarter-hour mark, as Jesus Jimenez headed an Alejandro Pozuelo cross past Eloy Room for his second goal in as many matches.

Zelarayan leveled in the 56th minute with a low, driven effort from outside the box past Alex Bono. Etienne, after having a goal called back because of an offside flag in the first half, scored the winner with 25 minutes remaining, striking a pass from the head of Jonathan Mensah.
