Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Meram scored a goal and assisted on
another as the Columbus Crew rolled to a 3-0 home victory against the Houston
Dynamo on Saturday.
Meram was on target after 35 minutes before turning provider for Adam Bedell
in the 59th.
Aaron Schoenfeld then scored five minutes later to lock up the win for the
Crew, who have won four of their last six games to continue their push up the
Eastern Conference table.
Crew goalkeeper Steve Clark made a big save on Will Bruin after a turnover in
the Columbus defensive third to keep the game scoreless, and Meram put his
team ahead 10 minutes before the break when he stole the ball from Houston's
David Horst and took a few touches before slotting his shot past netminder
The Dynamo struggled to get much going in attack on Saturday, and Bedell
doubled the Crew's lead in the 59th when he got on the other end of a cross
from Meram to head the ball beyond the reach of Hall.
Five minutes later, Schoenfeld made it 3-0 to put the result beyond reach as
Waylon Francis got down the left wing and crossed for Schoenfeld, whose
flicked header found the net.
