The Crew’s youth shines in demolition of Atlanta United

In the “Battle of the Death Star” at Field, the force was with the Columbus Crew on Saturday night. The Crew demolished Eastern Conference leaders Atlanta United 6-1, a score Black & Gold fans haven’t heard in a long time.

With several players absent for the Black & Gold due to injury, such as forward Cucho Hernandez and midfielder Kevin Molino, as well as goalkeeper Eloy Room, center back Milos Degenek and playmaker Lucas Zelarayan away on international duty, head coach Wilfried Nancy called on young player to step up. They did.
