Defender Mohamed Farsi scored the go-ahead goal for the Crew in the 53rd minute of the match.

  • Farsi posted his second goal of the season and second goal contribution in his past three appearances.
  • Tonight, Farsi earned the penalty that Cucho Hernández converted


  • The Crew registered a 3-2 win against New York City FC in tonight’s road match at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, New York.
    • The Crew have registered four consecutive road wins in MLS play (CF Montreal, 3-1 W, May 15; Chicago Fire FC, 3-1 W, May 18; Orlando City SC, 2-0 W, May 25). It only marks the second time in Club history that the Crew have won four consecutive road matches (2015).
    • The Black & Gold have scored 11 goals in the past four road matches. It marks the first time the Crew have recorded that number of goals in four road matches since overtime was removed from MLS play in 2003. Columbus have accomplished this feat only one other time in Club history overall (2002).
    • Columbus becomes the second team to score 11 goals in a stretch of four road matches this season. Real Salt Lake is the only other team to score as many.
    • The Black & Gold have secured a point in seven of their first eight road matches (4-1-3) for the first time in Club history.
