4/10/17: Columbus Crew Drop a Game

And it's not the end of the world considering that were still standing in first place in the Eastern Conference.

And only behind the Portland Timbers overall, who we've by our lonesome beat.

Orlando City (who we've also beat solely) and FC Dallas are in more favorable positions with games in hand. 

Yet, beats last years beginning handily. 

Also the Crew were without two every day starters in Federico Higuain and Harrison Afful; as well as one that would be considered likely one in Jonathan Mensah. 

Therefore, the lineup was shuffled quite differently.

Considering on the road, the performance wasn't great first half. But, they were the better side second half and had opportunities.

Especially Hansen and Crognale, who were just unlucky on the day and their chances.

It wasn't terrible on the road, wasn't a performance like Houston. Considering the jumbled lineup, could've worked out as a win still rather easily.

So, on with the next one with a healthier lineup.
