MLS Snapshot: Chicago Fire 0-1 Columbus Crew


The game in 100 words (or less): Columbus scored its road win of the season against a Chicago team that’s struggling mightily… and they get to face off again in a few days. Ethan Finlay and Kei Kamara continue to assert themselves as forces in the East (and league wide for that matter).

Three moments that mattered

41′ — Kamara buries another — Ethan Finlay raced down the right wing to collect a pass, and Chicago gave him somewhere between three seconds and two years to pop a cross to an onrushing Kei Kamra, who rose to hammer home a header. Goal No. 13.

61′ — Finlay denied — Different half of the pitch but Finlay again had a chance to stare down the keeper, only to see his insurance attempt pushed over the bar.

64 — Johnson saves — Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson flew to stop Federico Higuain’s free kick. It was super solid.

Man of the match: Finlay — So dynamic… he must be an All-Star.
