A rain-out, a season-ending injury to another starter, and a bus ride back to Columbus from Chicago had taken its toll on the Columbus Crew. Or so we thought.
The Crew rebounded from a midweek defeat in the U.S. Open Cup to beat first-place Montreal Impact, 2-0, at Crew Stadium on Saturday, earning them SBI MLS Team of the Week. Dominic Oduro scored the second goal and assisted on the opener by Matias Sanchez. The win moved the Crew to within two points of a playoff spot.
The Crew beat out the Portland Timbers, Vancouver Whitecaps, and San Jose Earthquakes for this week’s honors.
What did you think of the Crew’s performance? What team impressed you in MLS Week 16?
