- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderSeriously, how fun has Ethan Finlay been to watch over the past few months? He's everywhere at all times. #Crew96
- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowCocis for Alex in the 63rd. #cf97
- KC Williamson@KC_Williamson13Sean Johnson bravo. Were still gonna win tho. #Crew96
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch62' - Contentious moment there between Finlay and Palmer on the left hand side... Both tangled, Palmer whistled for the foul. #cf97
- 63'MRazvan CocisMAlex
- Keith Collette@kcbus96Finlay... Wow. That can't be anything other then a goal. #Crew96
- Keith Collette@kcbus96Memo to #Crew96: might not be a bad idea to have someone a little closer to Magee than that.
- Jeff@NUFCBayernFair play to #Crew96 though, as I finally bought one of those away shirts this season.
- Ryan Roberts@RhinoRobertsMost casual shot EVER #crew96
- Jeff@NUFCBayernApparently I'm the only one who thinks it's weird that #Crew96 have worn the same away kit three seasons in a row.
- SAVE: Sean Johnson spectacularly dives to stop an Ethan Finlay attack
- Michael Citro@11W_MichaelShooting right at the keeper having predictable results tonight. #Crew96
- Jim Franklin@books_and_beerLike it that Shipp is coming in, but think there are others, beside Ward, who need to come off. #cf97
- BLOCK: Giancarlo Gonzalez skillfully diffuses a dangerous Quincy Amerikwa inside the box
- Orrin Schwarz@Orrin_SchwarzLooks like Cocis hustling back to the bench. Might be the next sub for #cf97
- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowHarry Shipp enters for Grant Ward in the 57th. Thought Ward was really having himself a night. #cf97
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondHarry Shipp to come on for #cf97... should add a bit of spring to the Fire attack.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew57': SUB - Shipp for Ward in a #cf97 change.
- Hot Time In Old Town@HotTimeOldTownThat Sean Johnson save was Dominik Hasek stuff. "Kick save and a beauty!!" #cf97
- Fire Conf Live@FireConfLive57'- Shipp for Ward. Good shift by Grant tonight. Lots of hustle. #cf97
- 57'MHarry ShippMGrant Ward
- Mario D'Amico@damico2414The Fire Mids are not playing well #CF97
- Astroheader@AstroheaderGreat save by Johnson. #CHIvCLB
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderFinlay headed it to Speas, but the ball bounded by without touching him before Pipa swooped in. Should stand as Finlay's helper. #Crew96
- Daniel Fehlhaber@DanielFehlhaberThis is a totally differ bet crew team half #cf97
- Chris 'Coz' Costello@notabbottFire midfield is just really, really bad in transition. Not getting forward fast enough to support the attack. #cf97
- Mario D'Amico@damico2414Sean Johnson says not here son and saves The Fire #CF97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy53' This is a totally different #crew96 side in the second half. Great interplay leads to Speas with a full crack, but it's deflected.
- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowJohnson save on a Speas shot in the 53rd. #cf97 back line isn't looking like a fortress.
- scot@hangthadjThere is about half a youth soccer team watching this #Crew96 game over my shoulder on my iPad in this Santa Cruz hotel

- Evan Stahr@russiansubsYou get a free kick in a good position for a cross, and you do...that? #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew51': Per Opta, Ethan Finlay is credited w/ the assist on Higuain's goal. #Crew96
- Keith Collette@kcbus96Gonzo just got booked for that mess. #Crew96
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyFederico Higuain moves into sole possession of eighth place in #crew96 history with 24 career goals.
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderEthan Finlay with the assist — that's now at least one goal or one assist in eight of his last 11 League matches. Breakout. #Crew96
- 50'D#21Giancarlo Gonzalez (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the yellow card.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew49': Palmer fires a shot from the right side above the box for #cf97 but it is high.
- Gail Jindrich@gjindrichHuh what? 1-1....#cf97
- Mario D'Amico@damico2414So I turned on the game about 20 min in, why isnt Shipp starting? #CF97
- Jonathan Henkels@HenkelsJonathanI think center back is a cursed position for the #cf97 . let's see if they can get another goal
- Winslow Hall@WinslowTeaHallPipa - Magic #Crew96
- Misanthropester@misanthropesterFinally, a tie #cf97
- Major League Soccer@MLSThat's how you start a half. Pipa is just oh-so-calm in front of goal. #CHIvCLB
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderGorgeous fake shot from Pipa. That's a classic FIFA 14 move right there. #Crew96

- 46'1 - 1F#2GOAL: Federico HiguaínGoals this Season: 8
- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowHALFTIME: Magee's 37th minute penalty kick gives #cf97 a 1-0 lead at halftime.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch90+' - One minute of stoppage time to be added on to the first half of play. #cf97
- Dan@ColumbustilidieI nominate Finlay's left foot for least valuable appendage.. Er maybe walls right arm. #crew96
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondAnother golden -- but missed -- chance for #Crew96. Again coming from Parkhurst, who gets deep and lays off to Finlay, but Ianni blocks.
- Fire Conf Live@FireConfLive44'- Parkhurst crosses it into the box, and Ianni blocks a shot after making a mistake to allow the shot. All square, Patrick. #cf97
- Bob O'Shaughnessy@oshaughnessySecond balls on crosses kill us as badly as our static runs in the box. #Crew96
- Jim Franklin@books_and_beerNeed to see more like that Alex-to-Ward play. That looked fairly promising. #cf97
- BLOCK: Ethan Finlay fires it from close range, but it is deflected away
- John Bava III@LWOS_JB3Must say, that sure looked like a bit of home cooking; the ball hit his upper bicep; I've seen worse not called. #Crew96
- Nicholas Fedora@nfedora3Was just about to say #cf97 need a set piece specialist (Shipp) if sacrificing midfield creativity. Gotta hold the lead now.
- Nino Torres@espnino74No reaction, team is numb after the goal #Crew96
- David Harris@hardworkharrisToo many opportunities go by without a shot on goal... too many. #cf97

- 37'1 - 0FGOAL: Mike Magee (PK)Goals this Season: 6

- PENALTY: Tyson Wahl called for hand ball in the box
- BLOCK: Jeff Larentowicz shuts down a quick and tricky Ethan Finlay strike
- Mario D'Amico@damico2414Let's Go Fire, get 3 points #CF97
- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowLarentowicz's running header off a corner right to Clark. #cf97
- Orrin Schwarz@Orrin_SchwarzLarentowicz header off Magee CK forces Clark to make save, but not a difficult save #cf97 31' 0-0
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch30' - Palmer and Ward work well on the right and Lovel earns another Fire corner after his cross is deflected out. #cf97
- Misanthropester@misanthropesterBecause #cf97 is impotent on the wings, just remove the option
- SAVE: Steve Clark handles a powerful Jeff Larentowicz header
- Misanthropester@misanthropesterAbandon the wings, just pack the middle tight like a 4-1-3-2 #cf97
- Fire Conf Live@FireConfLiveHaven't looked at the live stats, but I have to think #cf97's passing completion is around 65% right now.
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondExcellent chance for #Crew96, as play is switched to Parkhurst, who then crosses in well but neither Finlay or Beddell is able to connect.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch26' - Parkhurst cross from the right is a swing and a miss away from Finlay making it 1-0... Close one. #cf97
- Keith Collette@kcbus96That was a disappointing free kick. #Crew96
- Jonathan Henkels@HenkelsJonathan#cf97 need to get Magee more involved, some sort of change is necessary

- Brian Sandalow@BrianSandalowAmarikwa has gone to ground three times. Just drew a foul. #cf97
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch15' - Tyson Wahl takes a big crack at Quincy Amarikwa. Foul whistled and warned by referee Silviu Petrescu. #cf97
- Fire Conf Live@FireConfLive15'- Wahl clips Amarikwa, gets away with a warning. Easily could've been yellow. #cf97
- Kevin Cram@k2cramLong day. Gonna decompress with a little #Crew96.
- Evan Stahr@russiansubsAmarikwa is really talented at drawing contact. Maybe it's not the most sportsmanlike skill, but it's useful. #cf97
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSTony Tchani really looks off since that hit on the head. Hope he's okay. #Crew96
- Guillermo Rivera@FireConfNot a whole lot out of the middle pitch again from #cf97. Watson/Ritter combo lacks vision

- CHANCE: Matt Watson rushes in off a cross, but does not get enough power on it
- Fire Conf Live@FireConfLive#cf97's attack is through their outside backs. Or links to the center, and then back outside. No creative central option.

- ...@serenosaurFantastic herp-derp in the second minute there. #cf97 teammates can't help out Quincy. :(
