The Columbus Crew grabbed a 1-0 win on the Road over Toronto FC on Saturday, with Bernardo Anor's goal on the counterattack as the only difference in the game.
The Crew had a chance to take the lead just before halftime from the penalty spot. Olman Vargas was brought down in the box by Ty Harden in the 41st minute, but Milovan Mirosevic couldn't take the chance and the match went to the break level.
But just over 10 minutes after the restart the visiting side made a counterattack count.
Anor did well to win the ball in his own defensive half, breaking forward on a long run toward TFC's box. He slid a pass out to the left and picked up the return ball before a fortunate bounce off a defender saw it land in perfect position for the finish.
Toronto couldn't come up with the equalizer despite pushing forward for much of the rest of the match, and Columbus walked away with three valuable road points.
