Saturday night brought a nice surprise for those Columbus Crew fans in attendance at Lower.com Field. Playing against a side that sat top of the Eastern Conference heading into the weekend, the Crew dismantled Atlanta United 6-1. And yes, this wasn’t a full-strength Atlanta team but neither was it a full-strength Black & Gold side.
With key players Cucho Hernandez, Lucas Zelarayan, Milos Degenek and Eloy Room all out of the lineup, Columbus still put on the best display of the young season. Scoring six goals doesn’t happen very often in any soccer game, much less one involving the Crew, so hopefully you enjoyed it.
