COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Dominic Oduro scored in the 72nd minute to help the Columbus Crew rally for a 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

Oduro took a pass from Eddie Gaven and struck a rising ball that sneaked inside the right post for his second goal, countering a 34th-minute goal by Jack McInerney.

McInerney received a pass by Danny Cruz from the right flank after the Union beat the offside trap for a two-man break. McInerney scored his third goal into an open net after goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum came out to challenge.

The Crew (2-1-2) has played to draws in its two home matches, while the Union (2-2-1) earned its first point in Columbus in four tries.
