Taking advantage of sloppy conditions, the Crew twice clawed their way back, starting with David Accam’s strike atop the 18-yard box in the 40th minute. The other arrived in the 71st minute when a squared cross from substitute Waylon Francis squeezed under Brad Guzan for an own goal.
These Eastern Conference foes are no strangers to rain-soaked conditions, as the Crew won, 2-0, over Atlanta back on March 30 amid downpours. That game was also held in Columbus.
