Anor helps Crew top Toronto FC 1-0

Published:

TORONTO (AP) -- Bernardo Anor scored in the 56th minute and the Columbus Crew beat Toronto FC 1-0 on Saturday.

The opportunistic Anor put the Crew in front after Toronto captain Julian de Guzman lost possession in midfield. Columbus drove toward the goal and, after a nice give and go, a clearing attempt by defender Logan Emory bounced straight back to Anor, who banged it in from close range.

Columbus (2-1-0) improved to 2-0-5 at BMO Field.

Toronto FC (0-3-0) is winless in MLS play but is just one game away from the CONCACAF Champions League final.

Toronto FC striker Danny Koevermans had a good chance in the 11th minute when a poor clearance went straight to him near the penalty spot. But his shot went straight at goalie Andy Gruenebaum.
