Two goals from Kamara – his third brace of the season and ninth of his MLS career – helped Crew SC to a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire at MAPFRE Stadium on Friday night. The two-goal effort pushed his season goal total to nine, moving him into the lead in the MLS Golden Boot standings. The Sierra Leone native has now scored more than half of Crew SC’s total goals for the season.
Kamara got on the board early to give the home side a 1-0 lead in the eighth minute after a clinical team buildup play. Crew SC midfielder Justin Meram managed to work his way through multiple defenders to play a lovely through ball to Ethan Finlay inside the area. Finlay then squared the ball to Kamara who was there for the easy tap-in from the top of the six-yard box.
Columbus Crew SC return to action this week on Wednesday night, when they host La Liga’s Valencia CF in an exhibition match at 7:30 p.m. ET at MAPFRE Stadium. Crew SC then travel to the Citrus Bowl on Saturday to take on Orlando City SC in MLS play at 7:30 p.m. ET (MLS LIVE).
