WATCH: Lee Nguyen, Kei Kamara exchange goals in Columbus in wild first 3 1/2 minutes


New England’s danger man took advantage of some ping-pong turnovers to give New England an early 1-0 lead at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus.

After a trio of miscues between Crew and Revs players, Nguyen pounced on a nice lay-off from Kelyn Rowe and used 10 yards of space to push a shot past Steve Clark.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Kei Kamara came back the other way to equalize in the 4th minute.

New England did Columbus a solid on the play, ball-watching a cross bar rebound as Kamara powered a header past a relatively-helpless Bobby Shuttleworth.
