CHICAGO FIRE vs COLUMBUS CREW TOYOTA PARK, Bridgeview, Ill. April 20, 2013 (WEEK 8, MLS Game #65) 7:30 p.m. CT (My50 Chi; FS-OH) The Chicago Fire return home to face an old rival riding an unbeaten streak when the Columbus Crew come to Toyota Park on Saturday evening. The Fire come back to Bridgeview after seeing the Houston Dynamo make history with a 2-1 victory last weekend in Texas. The Crew are continuing their road swing after coming back for a 1-1 draw with the Montréal Impact last weekend in Québec, extending their undefeated run to four games. REFEREE: David Gantar.

In the nine meetings since in Bridgeview, the Fire have won five, with four draws.  Coaches record: Frank Klopas vs. CLB: P5 W4 L1 T0 … Robert Warzycha vs. CHI: P13 W3 L6 T4 CHICAGO FIRE The Chicago Fire weren’t able to build upon their first victory of the 2013 season, the Houston Dynamo getting a late goal for a 2-1 win Sunday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Fire are in a tie for ninth place in the Eastern Conference with 4 points from 6 matches. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo took the lead in the 26th minute. Brad Davis turned Wells Thompson inside-out to get space and swing in a perfect cross from the left flank, and Will Bruin made no mistake, heading his shot inside the far post out of Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson’s reach.  But the Fire were level three minutes later. Houston was unable to clear a long throw-in and Daniel Paladini latched onto the ball, laying it past Corey Ashe to Chris Rolfe, who blasted a first-time shot to the near corner.  The Dynamo hit for the winner in the 81st minute. Davis took a Kofi Sarkodie pass on the right flank and clipped in a cross that sailed through the box untouched before nestling in the far-side netting.  Fire head coach Frank Klopas made one change to the team that got two late goals for a 3-1 win against the New York Red Bulls at Toyota Park. Gonzalo Segares returned to the team in place of Hunter Jumper.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-2-3-1): Sean Johnson - Wells Thompson, Austin Berry, Jalil Anibaba, Gonzalo Segares Jeff Larentowicz, Logan Pause - Daniel Paladini (Patrick Nyarko 57), Chris Rolfe, Joel Lindpere (Dilly Duka 85) - Sherjill MacDonald (Maicon Santos 60). TEAM NEWS  While the Fire scored a goal for a third consecutive game after starting the season with three straight shutouts, they have now allowed 12 goals on the season, the most in MLS.  “I just think when you give two goals it is difficult. We did create some chances and if we score the second goal it changes things, so that is why I kind of felt that we had a good opportunity to walk away with points. With the game winding down walking away with a point, you feel good on the road,” said Fire head coach Frank Klopas.

MLS GAME INFORMATION

    

Chris Rolfe netted his first goal of 2013, after netting eight goals in 22 league appearances last year in his return to MLS. “I was very happy for him,” Sherjill MacDonald said. “Not only for him, but for the team, because we know if this guy is confident, we know we're going to score a lot of more goals, and he's going to give a lot of more passes to score. Everyone knows, when Rolfe has his confidence high, he's a fantastic player. It's good for the group. … Maicon scored, Rolfie scored, so I think next game, [it's] my turn. I feel like it's coming. I have a good feeling. I've been working very hard, so hopefully it's going to pay off.” Daniel Paladini continued his hot scoring run, setting up Chris Rolfe’s first goal of the season in the Fire’s 2-1 loss at Houston on Sunday. Paladini has a goal and three assists over the last two games, having been involved in each of Chicago’s goals in that time. “We didn't have a lot of options,” Klopas said. “I think they played well. Danny was involved with all of the goals. … We did a very good job defensively. That block of eight got behind the ball and defended really well.” Paladini again played a wide role, with Joel Lindpere on the opposite flank, and Logan Pause slotting into a holding midfield role. Patrick Nyarko returned to action after missing the New York match, coming on for the final half hour in place of Paladini. “It's going to be interesting,” Nyarko said. “This is when you wish you were not a coach and you just leave it for the coaches to make those decisions. But it's good for the team, healthy competition.” Following a setback in his return to fitness, center back Arne Friedrich will now be sidelined indefinitely. “I trained for two weeks, and my legs were always pretty tight,” he said. “Then I had a setback, and now I feel pain again, so I have to be patient. I have to work on that. Unfortunately, I can't promise when I'll be back.”

COLUMBUS CREW The Columbus Crew stretched their undefeated streak to four matches, coming back for a 1-1 draw with the Montréal Impact on Sunday afternoon at Stade Saputo, in a game delayed a day because of a snowstorm. The Crew are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 9 points from 6 matches. LAST MATCH  The game's two goals came four minutes apart, and both of the spectacular variety. The Impact pulled ahead in the 68th minute when Sanna Nyassi’s failed volley attempt on the edge of the box turned into an assist for Marco Di Vaio, who ripped home a thunderous shot from some 22 yards out.  But the Crew were level in the 72nd minute. Dominic Oduro showed impeccable control in latching onto a deflected cross and looping it in front of Hassoun Camara, before sending a left-footed finish to the top right corner of Troy Perkins' goal from the left side of the box.  Crew head coach Robert Warzycha made no changes to his team for a second consecutive week, keeping the group that came back for a 1-1 draw with Philadelphia Union at Crew Stadium.  COLUMBUS CREW (4-2-3-1): Andy Gruenebaum - Josh Williams, Chad Marshall, Glauber, Tyson Wahl Danny O'Rourke (Kevan George 82), Agustin Viana - Eddie Gaven, Federico Higuain, Ben Speas (Jairo Arrieta 72) - Dominic Oduro (Ethan Finlay 77). TEAM NEWS  The Crew extended their undefeated streak to four games – playing to a third draw in that time – in the in the 11 draw at Montréal on Sunday, a game delayed a day because of a snowstorm.  “To get a point here, especially with the conditions we had; staying an extra day, playing a noon game, you never know what to expect, so I thought we did a great job and we can build off of that,” said goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum.  The Crew’s Dominic Oduro netted his second goal in as many games and his third of the season in hitting for the equalizer against the Impact. Quite coincidentally, both goals have come in the 72nd minute.  “This is one of those goals that I think I will cherish in my MLS life. It felt fantastic; it’s not every day that you score a goal like that,” said Oduro. “I thought we played well and it gave me an opportunity to bend a goal like that. I have to keep my confidence up and hopefully score some goals again. That goal was a relief for us, to tell us we were doing something really good and I was glad I was at the end of it.” Said defender Chad Marshall: “That was pretty much an individual effort. He put the team on his back.”  The Crew allowed the opening goal for a third game this season; they have two draws and a loss in those games. In the three games where they’ve scored first, they are 2-0-1.  “We would like to not go down first, start the game better and be on the front foot for a change,” Eddie Gaven said. “But we know we have a good team and even if we don't have the best start there's no panic.”  Federico Higuaín was able to pass a pregame fitness test after suffering a left calf contusion, with the extra day before the game, and played the full 90 minutes.  “You look across our lineup and you see a lot of offensive weapons that can really make a difference,” goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum said. “Whether it's Ben Speas going at people, Dom's speed, [Higuaín's] playmaking ability. You get the feeling we're never out of a game. In years past, it hasn't always been the case.”

The Fire received first half strikes from Marco Pappa and Dominic Oduro before a red card to Gonzalo Segares forced the team to battle out a gutsy 2-1 victory over the Crew at Toyota Park June 23. In the final meeting between the two squads, trailing 1-0, Chris Rolfe score two goals in the span of three minutes to down the Crew 2-1 at Toyota Park Sept. 22.

A LOOK AT THE FIRE The Chicago Fire (1-4-1; 4 pts.) enter their 16th season of MLS play after posting a 17-11-6 record, earning 57 points, tied with the 2000 season for the highest point total in club history. Continuity is key for head coach Frank Klopas this season as the team returns 19 players from the 2012 squad that qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2009, including veterans Logan Pause, Patrick Nyarko and Gonzalo Segares. Offseason acquisitions Jeff Larentowicz, Joel Lindpere, Maicon Santos and Dilly Duka bolster the roster for the Men in Red. Sean Johnson returns for his fourth campaign with the Fire. Reigning MLS Rookie of the Year Austin Berry is set to pair with German World Cup veteran Arne Friedrich in central defense. The strike tandem of Sherjill MacDonald and 2012 Fire MVP and Golden Boot winner Chris Rolfe will serve as the scoring force for the Fire in 2013.

- vs. Columbus Crew – April 20, 2013   FIRE – COLUMBUS CREW CONNECTIONS Fire midfielder Dilly Duka began his professional career with the Columbus Crew. After a standout collegiate career at Rutgers University, the Montville, N.J. product was selected in the first round (eight overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft by the Crew. In three seasons, Duka scored two goals and tallied five assists in 45 matches. The Men in Red acquired Duka and the right of first refusal to midfielder Robbie Rogers in exchange for Dominic Oduro Feb. 4, 2013. Current Crew forward Dominic Oduro spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as a member of the Men in Red. In 66 regular season appearances, the Ghanaian striker scored 18 goals and tallied five assists. Crew defender Eric Gehrig and midfielder Ethan Finlay are products of the Chicago Fire PDL system. Two Fire players hail from the Buckeye state. Cincinnati, Ohio product Austin Berry was named 1st Team All State and Division III Southwest Ohio Player of the Year while playing all four seasons before graduating from Summit Country Day. Born in Kettering, Ohio, Fire forward Chris Rolfe matriculated to nearby University of Dayton where he concluded his collegiate career as sixth all-time at UD in goals with 31, and set UD’s single-season and career assist records with 10 in 2004 and 25 in his collegiate career. RECENT HISTORY This is the first of three meetings between the Fire and Crew this season. The Fire head to the Buckeye state for the second and third legs of the series on Saturday, June 22 at 7:00 p.m. CT and Saturday, Sept. 21 at 6:30 p.m. CT respectively. The two squads met three times during the 2012 season. Austin Berry found the back of the net in front of 600 traveling supporters but it wasn’t enough to overcome goals from Eddie Gaven and Emilio Renteria as the Fire fell 2-1 at Crew Stadium May 26. The Fire received first half strikes from Marco Pappa and Dominic Oduro before a red card to Gonzalo Segares forced the team to battle out a gutsy 2-1 victory over the Crew at Toyota Park June 23. In the final meeting between the two squads, trailing 1-0, Chris Rolfe score two goals in the span of three minutes to down the Crew 2-1 at Toyota Park Sept. 22. CHICAGO FIRE DROP HARD-FOUGHT 2-1 MATCH TO HOUSTON DYNAMO The Chicago Fire fell 2-1 to the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas Sunday afternoon. Fire forward Chris Rolfe equalized in the 29th minute just three minutes after the Dynamo’s Will Bruin opened scoring, but the Fire were unable to find a second comeback after an 81st minute Brad Davis strike gave the hosts the lead. The hosts got on the board first in the 26th minute when Davis drove in a cross to the top of the six-yard box to Bruin, who powered his header down and into the back of the net to give the Dynamo the 1-0 lead. Just minutes later, Rolfe scored his first goal of the season with the 29th minute equalizer. Deep in the Dynamo half, Gonzalo Segares sent a throw-in to Sherjill MacDonald inside the penalty area. With his back towards goal, the Dutchman held off his defender, brought the ball down and centered it to Daniel Paladini at the penalty spot. Paladini took a touch and played it into the path of an onrushing Rolfe, and the Fire forward sent his right-footed blast past Dynamo ‘keeper Tally Hall and into the back of the net. In the 63rd minute Dynamo midfielder Andrew Driver shook his defender and went racing unopposed towards goal but Johnson quickly got down to block the shot. The hosts broke the deadlock in the 81st minute. Kofi Sarkodie received the ball on the right flank and centered his pass to Davis. The Dynamo captain whipped in a cross from 25 yards out that went into the goal untouched. Again looking for the equalizer, the Fire continued to press and got their best chance in the 84th minute. Joel Lindpere drove in a corner kick and found Jeff Larentowicz on the edge of the six-yard box but his header banged off the crossbar.

GAME 7: COLUMBUS CREW AT CHICAGO FIRE

MISCELLANEOUS TEAM NOTES MATCH RECAP -- GAME 6 CREW FIGHTS BACK FOR A 1-1 DRAW AT MONTREAL The Columbus Crew (2-1-3, 9 points) fought back late to secure a 1-1 draw at the Eastern Conference-leading Montreal Impact (4-1-1, 13 points) at Stade Saputo on April 14. For the second straight week, Crew forward Dominic Oduro equalized the game with a 72nd-minute strike – his team-leading third of the season – to preserve a point for the Crew after Marco Di Vaio’s powerful blast gave Montreal the lead in the 68th minute. The draw moves the Crew’s unbeaten streak to four games (1-0-3) dating back to March 16 against San Jose. Able to secure another crucial point on the road, the Crew also remains perfect in the Eastern Conference (1-0-2).

CREW AND CHICAGO AT A GLANCE REGULAR-SEASON SERIES HISTORY Columbus Crew record: 12-22-13 Home games: 7-9-6 (37 GF, 32 GA) Road games: 5-13-7 (32 GF, 42 GA) Last Three Meetings: 05/26/2012 CLB 2 vs CHI 1 W 06/23/2012 CLB 1 at CHI 2 L 09/22/2012 CLB 1 at CHI 2 L

BLACK & GOLD NOTES WINDY CITY WOES Saturday’s match is the Crew’s 12th regular-season trip to Toyota Park dating back to 2006 ... the Bridgeview, Ill., venue has not been kind to the Black & Gold as the Crew is 1-5-5 overall in the building, including a current nine-game winless streak (0-5-4) that began with a 3-2 loss on June 3, 2007. ONE-GOAL GAMES A TREND IN LAST FIVE The last five meetings between the two teams have resulted in tightly-contested as the two teams have played to five straight one-goal games dating back to June 12, 2011 ... in that span, Chicago has gone 4-1-0 and has outscored Columbus 9-6 ... only once in the last five matches -- the 1-0 Fire win on June 12, 2011 match at Crew Stadium -- has a team been held scoreless. SEEING BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVALRY... Since 1998, 16 players have suited-up for both the Crew and the Fire in their careers ... the list includes: Brian McBride, Ante Razov, Jon Busch, Dominic Oduro, Dilly Duka, Matt Chulis, Leonard Griffin, Andy Herron, Richie Kotschau, Manny Lagos, Brian Plotkin (never played for Crew but was rostered), Tony Sanneh, Tim Ward, Andy Williams and John Wolyniec.

Columbus Crew Stadium Toyota Park Toyota Park

ANOTHER CHAPTER IN THE STORIED RIVALRY Saturday’s match at Toyota Park is the first of three meetings this season between the Crew and the Fire ... this is the lone trip to Chicago this season and the 48th regularseason meeting in the all-time season series between the two teams dating back to 1998 ... Chicago holds a 22-12-13 overall advantage, as the Fire are 9-7-6 against the Crew in Columbus and 13-5-7 in Chicago. LAST MEETING Chicago’s Chris Rolfe scored twice in three minutes to give the Fire a 2-1 win at Toyota Park on September 29, 2012 ... Jairo Arrieta gave the Crew an early lead in the 15th minute but Rolfe’s brace -- with strikes in the 23rd and 25th minute -- gave the home side the full three points.

HOW THEY MATCH-UP

... AND ODURO RETURNS TO CHICAGO ON SATURDAY On Saturday, Crew forward Dominic Oduro returns to the team that traded him to the Black & Gold in February ... Oduro scored 18 goals in 66 matches for the Fire in 2011 and 2012 ... while with the Fire, he recorded one goal in five appearances against the Crew ... the 28-year-old also made five appearances and recorded one assist against the Crew while a member of FC Dallas (2006-2008) and made two appearances against Columbus while with Houston from 2009-2010. CATCH ALL THE ACTION BACK IN COLUMBUS WITH A WATCH PARTY Crew fans wanting to catch the action of this Eastern Conference rivarly should make their way to the Crew-sponsored watch party at Jimmy V’s Westerville (1 South State St., Westerville) ... fans 21+ can enjoy buckets of 5 bottles (Bud, Bud Light, Bud Select) for only $12 and $3 Budweiser draughts with a Crew mug including $1.50 refills ... more information on Pub Tour dates can be found via TheCrew.com. UNBEATEN STREAK CONTINUES The 1-1 draw on Sunday at Montreal extended the Crew’s modest unbeaten streak to four games (1-0-3) dating back to March 16 against San Jose ... the team’s last (and only) loss came when the Crew fell 2-1 in Vancouver on March 9, more than one month ago ... the Black & Gold are one of three teams with a current unbeaten streak of four or more games, joining Portland (4), Kansas City (4) and FC Dallas (5). EASTERN CONFERENCE PERFECTIONISTS This weekend’s match in Chicago also puts the Black & Gold’s perfect Eastern Conference record on the line ... following a 1-1 draw at Montreal last Sunday, the Crew is now 1-0-2 in Eastern Conference play this season after opening 2013 with three straight Western Conference matches (1-1-1).

ROAD SWING WRAPS-UP The Black & Gold return to the road this weekend for their fifth away match in seven contests thus far in 2013 ... although the Crew has yet to win at home (0-0-2), the team has been able to secure key road wins after posting a 2-1-1 record away from home thus far ... after Saturday, the Crew plays its next three straight matches at home: April 27 vs. D.C., May 4 vs. New York and May 11 vs. Colorado. ROAD-TRIP SOUVENIRS The Crew visits its fifth city in seven weeks on Saturday in Chicago ... the Black & Gold share the League lead with New York for road goals with seven through four away matches ... after scoring three goals to open the year at Chivas USA (March 2) the Crew has continued to score on the road with a single goal in the 2-1 loss at Vancouver (March 9) before netting a pair in the 2-1 win at D.C. (March 23) ... Dominic Oduro picked-up the club’s road goal last Sunday at Montreal (April 14). ONE GOAL IN CHICAGO KEEPS THE STREAK ALIVE Through six games in 2013, the Crew has found the back of the net in each game, scoring eight goals ... in fact, the 1-1 draw at Montreal on Sunday was the club’s 13th straight match in which it has scored ... the last time the Crew was held scoreless was on September 5, 2012, a 0-0 draw in New England.


GAME 7: COLUMBUS CREW AT CHICAGO FIRE 13 GAMES STRONG Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the Crew’s 13-game goals-scored streak is tied for the third longest in club history, matching a streak set in 2005 ... the Black & Gold’s longest streaks -- including the club-leading 27-game streak from 2008 to 2009 -- are below. 1) 27 games -- 08/16/2008 to 07/04/2009 2) 16 games -- 06/16/2001 to 09/09/2001 T-3) 13 games -- 07/09/2005 09/24/2005 T-3) 13 games -- 09/15/2012 04/14/2013 ACTIVE ANOTHER 72ND-MINUTE STRIKES IN THE CARDS? Dominic Oduro is getting used to hearing his name called out on the PA after a 72ndminute goal ... on Sunday at Montreal, for the second straight week Oduro equalized the game with a 72nd-minute strike – his team-leading third of the season – to preserve a point for the Crew after Marco Di Vaio’s powerful blast gave Montreal the lead in the 68th minute ... on April 6 against Philadelphia, Oduro’s 72nd-minute strike secured a point in the 1-1 draw. COMEBACK CREW? For the second consecutive match, the Black & Gold have allowed the first goal and battled back to secure a point ... thus far, the Crew is 0-1-2 when allowing the first goal as the team fell 2-1 to Vancouver on March 9 ... in 2012, the Crew went 5-8-3 when its opponent got on the board first. FINDING THE BACK OF THE NET After being shut-out in two of the team’s first six matches in 2012, the Crew has scored in each of its first six matches this season ... the Black & Gold are among five other teams that have not been shut out in 2013 ... that list includes FC Dallas, LA, Philadelphia, Portland and Vancouver. GRUENEBAUM TESTED AND DELIVERING Through six games this season, Andy Gruenebaum is one of nine MLS goalkeepers with a goals against average of 1.00 or less ... six of those ‘keepers -- including Gruenebaum -- have started in each of their team’s matches ... not only has the 30-year-old Crew netminder seen the third-most shots of the eight ‘keepers with a 1.00 GAA or less, but Gruenebaum also has recorded 19 saves -- a feat only two others on that list have accomplished ... the list of the six aforementioned ‘keepers is below: GK Jimmy Nielsen Carlo Cudicini Troy Perkins Nick Rimando Andy Gruenebaum Michael Gspurning

HIGUAIN ALREADY AMONG CLUB CAREER LEADERS IN CORNER KICKS In less than one full season -- 19 games played in fact -- Federico Higuain has already etched his name into one of the club’s all-time leaderboard lists ... the Argentine has taken 64 corners, good for ninth on the Crew’s all-time list ... next on the list is eighth-place leader Andy Williams (77 CK, 34 GP) while Crew boss Robert Warzycha maintains a stronghold at the top with 503 corners in 160 games played. ODURO’S BLISTERING PACE Dominic Oduro scored his third goal of the season and his 36th career goal on Sunday at Montreal ... Oduro -- in his eighth season in MLS -- has scored at least five goals in each of the last three seasons, including a career-high, 12-goal campaign in 2011 ... Oduro is averaging 0.50 goals per game and should he keep this pace, could finish the season with a new career high. HORTON SIDELINED FOLLOWING KNEE SURGERY The Crew announced on April 3 that that forward Aaron Horton underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery to address a torn left lateral meniscus ... Horton has begun rehabilitation and is expected to be out an additional two to four weeks ... the procedure was performed by club physician Dr. Pete Edwards in Columbus. CREW BACKLINE HOLDING STRONG Through six games this season, Head Coach Robert Warzycha has used an identical four-man backline ... new additions Tyson Wahl and Glauber have joined Chad Marshall and Josh Williams from left to right on the backline as the four have helped keep opponents to just a goal per game average. OVERALL LINEUP CONSISTENCY For the first time this year, Head Coach Robert Warzycha has used an identical lineup for back-to-back Crew matches dating back to April 6 against Philadelphia ... of late, Dominic Oduro has moved into a forward role up top in front of club captain Federico Higuain ... striker Jairo Arrieta has made two consecutive substitute appearances.

SECOND-HALF STRIKERS The Crew has provided plenty of second-half excitement thus far in 2013 as the club has scored eight of its nine goals after halftime ... Josh Williams scored the team’s only first-half goal in the 15th minute at D.C. on March 23 ... as a point of comparison, last season the Black & Gold recorded 21 of their 34 goals after the second-half whistle ... this year, the Crew has seen goals just seconds into the second half (Arrieta, 46’ at VAN on 3/9) as well as an insurance goal in second-half stoppage time (Oduro, 94+’ at CHV on 3/2). SECOND-HALF SURPLUS, FIRST-HALF FAMINE The Black & Gold have scored eight second-half goals this season which ranks third in MLS behind Chivas USA (9) and Portland (8) ... while the Crew has found success in the second half, the team has scored just one first half goal (Josh Williams at D.C. on March 23) ... the team is tied for 13th in MLS for first-half goals as League-leaders New York and Montreal have tallied five times each in the opening 45 minutes of matches thus far in 2013. WARZYCHA AS BOSS Crew boss Robert Warzycha began his fifth year at the helm on March 2 at Chivas USA … including the April 13 draw at Montreal, over the last five seasons, Warzycha has the fourth-best record among MLS coaches, trailing only Bruce Arena (LA), Sigi Schmid (SEA) and Jason Kreis (RSL) ... a look at how Warzycha’s five-year, regularseason performance stacks up against the rest of MLS is below: 1) Bruce Arena: 67-31-35 2) Sigi Schmid: 59-35-39 3) Jason Kreis 60-41-34 4) Robert Warzycha: 57-41-36 5) Dom Kinnear: 53-42-39 6) Frank Yallop: 49-45-41 HEJDUK AN HONORARY CHAIR FOR AIDS WALK CENTRAL OHIO 2013 Brand Ambassador Frankie Hejduk serves as an Honorary Event Chair for the annual Dr. Robert J. Fass Memorial AIDS Walk Central Ohio 2013 on April 20 at Bicentennial Park ... more than 16,000 Ohioans are currently living with HIV or presumed infected but undiagnosed ... said Hejduk, “I am honored to be part of AIDS Walk Central Ohio 2013. I’ve been known to battle on the soccer field, and now I want to help battle AIDS in our community” ... registration starts at 9:00 a.m. and the 5K Run will kick-off at 10:30 a.m. ET with the 5K walk and one-mile stroll starting shortly afterwards ... more info can be found at aidswalkcentralohio.com

BY THE NUMBERS 3 In his next appearance, midfielder Eddie Gaven will move into sole possesion of third place on the club’s all-time games played list ... Gaven enters the weekend with 203 club appearances, tied for third with Jeff Cunningham ... while Gaven is 18 appearances behind the second-place Mike Clark (221), his teammate in the starting lineup -- Chad Marshall -- enters the weekend on top of the list with 229 games played for the Black & Gold ... Gaven already holds the number three spot on the club’s games started list (192) behind Clark (216) and Marshall (226).

45-60 Perhaps it’s something about Robert Warzycha’s halftime speech, but the Crew has come out extra-energized in the second half of matches this season and the team’s scoring has reflected as much ... with one third of the team’s goals scored (3-of-9) in the first fifteen minutes of the second half, the Black & Gold share the League lead with Portland for most goals in the 45-60 minute window of matches ... the Crew also shares the lead with Chivas USA in goals in the window between minutes 61-75 with three tallies courtesy of back-to-back weeks of Dominic Oduro 72nd-minute strikes

26 Federico Higuain leads the Black & Gold in corner kicks this season with 26 and the Argentine is not far behind the League lead ... Pipa trails only Sporting KC’s Graham Zuzi (5 games played, 29 corner kicks).

10 Saturday’s match will be the 10th regular-season meeting between Robert Warzycha and Frank Klopas ... per the Elias Sports Bureau, the two will be on opposing benches for the sixth time as Klopas holds a 4-1-0 edge over the Crew boss since 2011 ... as players, Klopas and Warzycha met four times between 1996 and 1998 with Klopas posting a 3-1-0 record.
