Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Bernardo Anor slotted a pair of goals to lead the Columbus Crew past Montreal Impact, 2-1 Saturday at Crew Stadium.
The Crew dominated possession in the first half but hardly had opportunities as they settled for long shots and failed crosses.
An errant pass by Crew captain Michael Parkhurst allowed Justin Mapp to find an open Marco Di Vaio on the break.
Di Vaio beat Crew defender Giancarlo Gonzalez before striking past Crew goalkeeper Steve Clark to put the Impact up 1-0 in the 36th minute.
Tony Tchani later found Anor who shot past Impact goali Evan Bush to even the score in the 56th minute.
The Impact (3-10-5) tried to get the lead back but Clark sucessfully stuffed their attempts.
In the 75th minute Anor gathered the ball near midfield before unleashing a strike that had the ball evading Bush to give the Crew (5-7-8) a 2-1 lead en route to the win.
