Revolution Vs. Crew Score Update: Columbus Embarrassed As Marshall Own Goal Puts New England Up 2-0

The New England Revolution got one step closer to their first win in eleven games on Wednesday night as the Columbus Crew committed a grievous error to put the Revs up 2-0. A misunderstanding between goalkeeper and defender resulted in a fairly embarrassing own goal.

A long Matt Reis kick reached the head of Chris Tierney, who had recently been substituted on for Diego Fagundez. Tierney flicked the ball toward Dimitry Imbongo, who was marked by Chad Marshall.

Marshall, a former MLS Defender of the Year, herded Imbongo away from the ball as Andy Gruenebaum rushed out to claim it. Then, inexplicably, with Gruenebaum bearing down on him to snatch the ball away, Marshall jumped and tried to head the ball to his keeper.

Instead, he headed it over his keeper. Imbongo gave chase, but his pressure had already done enough, as Marshall's errant header bounded into the net to give the Revs a two-goal lead.
