The Columbus Crew scored twice against the Chicago Fire last weekend in a 2-2 draw at Soldier Field. For the first, a Gyasi Zardes shot was misdirected off Fatai Alashe’s face. Then late in the match, a shot hit Zardes in the back of the legs, and somehow popped forward in the perfect spot for the U.S. international to bury the equalizer.
A few minutes before that second Crew goal, Przemyslaw Frankowski hit a sitter straight to Eloy Room that was, honestly, harder to miss than it would have been to make.
Those three plays conspired to ruin what would have been a great win over the first-place Crew.
