Stolen Waters Are Sweet: Columbus Crew 2, Chicago Fire 2, recap

Jason Johnson's header in the dying moments completes Fire's two-goal comeback in rollicking, wide-open rivalry match There must've been a moment, sometime around an hour into Friday night's game, when Fire manager Frank Yallop felt a certain kinship with Stansfield, the crooked DEA agent from The Professional: Somehow, Yallop's side had taken the hosts best punch and were still standing. A true brace - a goal on each side of halftime - for Golden Boot leader Kei Kamara had staked Columbus to a 2-0 lead through 55 minutes. In a similar situation in this fixture last year, the Men in Red...

No MAPFRE Magic on Friday Night

Crew SC missed the opportunity for another three points at home. Last weekend, the Chicago Fire built a 2-0 lead on the road against New York City FC, only to see the home side come back and equalize in stoppage time to earn a point. On Friday night, the Fire did the opposite to Columbus Crew SC, who were up 2-0 with 33 minutes remaining in the match. It didn't take the Black and Gold long to start things off in the contest. After a close strike from midfielder Ethan Finlay six minutes in was ruled offside, the winger turned provided in the eighth minute, setting up striker Kei Kamara for...

Fireside Chat: Talking Fire v Crew with Patrick Murphy of Massive Report

Patrick Murphy of Massive Report joins us to discuss Kei Kamara, Federico Higuain, and the enigmatic legend of Eddie Gaven We ask, they answer HTiOT: I will cop to being skeptical about Kei Kamara as the answer as a No. 9 for the Crew, but 7 goals and 2 assists in 10 starts tell a happier story for the Black and Gold. What's been the key to getting such production out of a talented guy who always worked hard but didn't always put up many numbers? MR: You are not the only one who was skeptical on Kamara at first. When the Black and Gold signed him towards the end of last season, I didn't...

Crew: High-powered offense takes crossing path to score

Once he learned that Crew SC had his Major League Soccer rights last summer, Kei Kamara started to research the team. Although coach Gregg Berhalter promised to trade his rights if he wasn’t comfortable playing within his system as the target forward, Kamara had one primary concern about moving from the wing to the top of the formation. Kamara wanted to make sure his Crew teammates would be providing enough service from the wings to satiate his appetite inside the box. Nine games into the season, those initial concerns have proved to be unfounded at a record-setting — and potentially...

Soccer | Crew 3, Sounders 2: Kamara scores twice as Crew defeats Sounders for first time at home

Kei Kamara scored twice, Federico Higuain added another and Crew SC (4-3-2) overcame a two-goal performance by Clint Dempsey in a fast-paced, 3-2 victory against Seattle (5-3-1) that was up for grabs until the end of regulation.

Columbus beats Seattle at home for first time, 3-2

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Kei Kamara scored two goals and the Columbus Crew beat Seattle 3-2 on Saturday night for their first home victory against the Sounders. The visiting team had won the previous three meetings in the series. Kamara headed home Waylon Francis' cross in the 10th minute to open the scoring for Columbus. Dempsey is tied with Kamara for the MLS goals lead with seven, but it wasn't enough to extend Seattle's three-game winning streak.

Thursday's Practice Pitch Updates: Attacking Option, Romain Gall, and Chad Marshall

Crew SC continue their preparation for the Sounders this weekend. It was a hot day in Columbus, but that didn't stop Columbus Crew SC from training hard after a day off on Wednesday. The Black and Gold were just finishing up as the media entered the compound at the EAS Training Center. The players that walked to the locker room were dripping in sweat in what must have been an intense end to training. A few players remained on the field, such as Ethan Finlay and Hector Jimenez, who juggled together, and Kei Kamara (sporting a new haircut), who snuck up behind Finlay and dumped a bucket of...

D.C. United vs.Columbus Crew MLS TV/streaming, previews, prediction, lineup and gamethread

First place in the East is potentially on the line as United takes on the visiting Crew. The toughest portion of D.C. United's 2015 schedule starts tonight as the Columbus Crew SC are in town for a match that may end up determining first place in the East. Gregg Berhalter's side features MLS's joint-leading goalscorer in Kei Kamara, as well as the highest-scoring attack overall. The Crew are known for their possession-obsessed approach, which makes this something of a clash of styles. For United, it's a chance to start a difficult month off on the right foot against a challenging opponent,...

Questions for Massive Report B&RU: How much has the return of Kei Kamara meant to the success of the Crew so far this season? MR: Kamara has been huge to start the season, better than I expected to be honest. The obvious impact has been his goals – five so far, which is tied for the league lead – but that is not all he...

Wednesday's Practice Pitch Updates: Team Building, On the Road, Prophet Kamara

Crew SC did something a little different on Wednesday. An e-mail was sent out to the media on Wednesday morning that Columbus Crew SC would not be doing their usual practice schedule, but rather partaking in a "team-building activity." As players started to trickle back in, those media members who showed, spoke with forward Kei Kamara before head coach Gregg Berhalter was made available to those who wanted to speak with the boss. Conversation with Kamara Kamara said last Saturday's performance against the Philadelphia Union was "just us being us at home." He said they knew what the Union...
