Rookies Rosenberry, Herbers score, Union beats Crew 2-1
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Rookies Keegan Rosenberry and Fabian Herbers scored to help the Philadelphia Union beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Rosenberry gave the Union (10-9-7) a 2-1 lead in the 74th minute. Tranquillo Barnetta one-timed a feed to Rosenberry who trapped it with his right foot and blasted a left-footer through a pair of defenders and past goalkeeper Steve Clark.
Herbers, making his fifth start of the season, opened the scoring in the 60th. Chris Pontius tapped it to Herbers who, from the top of the box, had a shot blocked by Hector Jimenez before side-netting the rebound. Both of his two career goals have come against Columbus (4-9-11).
Adam Jahn tied it in the 73rd minute. Tony Tchani’s header, off the corner by Federico Higuain, was deflected off the crossbar by goalkeeper Andre Blake and — after a failed clearance by the Union — Jahn tapped it in from close range.
It was the Union’s third consecutive home win.
Columbus has one win in its last 11 matches.
