Chivas USA 0-3 Columbus Crew: Visitors rack up score late

An announced attendance of 7,121 watched an ugly game between Chivas USA and the Columbus Crew in the Home Depot Center which the visitors won 3-0.

Columbus showed its intent early. Within half a minute, Josh Williams snapped an open volley on goal. Only Dan Kennedy's reflexes managed to push the ball around the post.

Andy Gruenebaum made a similarly impressive save midway through the first half, tipping a Julio Morales breakaway shot narrowly wide. A few minutes later, Morales again broke free on goal, but this time a heavy touch took the ball away and he opted to dive over Gruenebaum. The referee decided not to punish Morales with what would have been a second yellow.

Five minutes into the second half Columbus scored. Federico Higuain curled a shot from nearly 30 yards that clipped off the post on its parabolic way in.

In a moment of symmetry, Josh Williams volleyed another shot on frame in the dying seconds -- off an Eddie Gaven corner -- and this one went in.

With the Goats pushing forward in stoppage time, Dominic Oduro led a counter from deep in his own half, rounded Dan Kennedy and put the game to bed.
