Finlay, Higuain score, Crew beat Impact 2-0
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ethan Finlay opened the scoring in the second minute and Federico Higuain added a second-half goal to give the Columbus Crew a 2-0 over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night.
From a narrow angle, Finlay blasted a rising shot into the top of the net past goalkeeper Evan Bush. Will Trapp set up Finlay’s run up the right side with a pass that perfectly split a pair of defenders.
The Crew (11-9-10) moved into fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 43 points in 30 games. Montreal is 6-18-6.
Higuain added his 11th goal of the season in the 58th minute, converting a penalty kick into the bottom left corner.
