The Columbus Crew signed their first win since September 23 on Sunday night, defeating New York City FC (NYCFC) 3-1 at Mapfre Stadium.
The Ohio club ended a streak of four games without a win.
He started the game against the NYCFC strong, as midfielder Arthur moved the strings in the 26e minute.
Pedro Santos doubled the Crew lead on the return from the half break. Used as a striker, the Portuguese unleashed a strike on reception that left goalkeeper Sean Johnson no chance.
It was Gyasi Zardes who completed the scorecard for Columbus, while Valentin Castellanos was New York’s sole scorer.
This gain was the 100e career of Crew Head Coach Caleb Porter.
Next Saturday, the NYCFC will try to bounce back against the Montreal Impact, while the Crew will seek a second consecutive win against the Houston Dynamo.
Brian White saves the Red Bulls
At Harrison’s Red Bull Arena, Brian White scored in stoppage time, which resulted in the New York Red Bulls drawing a 1-1 draw against Orlando City SC.
Taking advantage of the confusion, the forward quickly turned and placed the ball in the bottom corner of Brian Rowe’s net.
Orlando had previously taken the lead at 56e minute. It was Nani who moved the ropes. The designated player was awarded a penalty shot and did not miss his chance by placing the ball in the left of Ryan Meara’s cage.
