Substitute Miguel Berry scored twice in a 78-second span to give Columbus Crew a stunning 3-2 win over Cincinnati in MLS on Friday.
Columbus had lost six in a row and appeared on the verge of another defeat, trailing 2-1 at home after Isaac Atanga’s 74th-minute goal gave Cincinnati the lead.
Berry had come on for Shaun Wright-Phillips a minute earlier, and he soon became the hero of the hour for the Crew.
The 23-year-old put home a rebound from a Pedro Santos shot in the 81st minute, then watched another rebound from an Alex Matan effort bounce off his chest and into the net less than two minutes later.
3 GOALS. 2 GAMES. 1 OPPONENT.
