Crew rallies in win over Red Bulls 2-1

Columbus Crew

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Kei Kamara set up Ethan Finlay’s two goals, and the Crew rallied for the win.

The Kamara-to-Finlay connection was a role reversal for the league leaders in goals (Kamara 12) and assists (Finlay 10).

Finlay punched in Kamara’s header to give Columbus (6-6-6) the lead in the 74th minute.

Anatole Abang put the Red Bulls (6-6-5) in front in the eighth minute, beating goalkeeper Steve Clark with a roller inside the far post.

Finlay tied it in the 33rd, taking a flick header from Kamara, cutting back and curling a left-footed shot into the net. Clark was credited with an assist on the long ball to Kamara.

Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch was sent off in stoppage time.
