Result: Kei Kamara guides Columbus Crew to comeback win over 10-man Colorado Rapids

The Columbus Crew rally from one goal down to defeat the Colorado Rapids 2-1 in their MLS clash thanks to a brace from Kei Kamara.

A brace from Kei Kamara guided Columbus Crew to a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids in their MLS clash.

The Rapids were the first to threaten as Vicente Sanchez lifted the ball into the box for the run of Kevin Doyle, but the striker could only flick his effort over the bar.

Columbus hit back when Hector Jimenez lifted the ball into the box for Kamara, but his headed effort hit the bar. Federico Higuain gathered the rebound, but also saw his strike crash off the woodwork and bounce over the net.

The home side took the lead just before the break when they won a free kick on the edge of the box and Bobby Burling curled his strike over the wall and into the top corner.

In the second half, the Crew levelled the scores when Tony Tchani played Kamara in behind the Colorado defence and the forward held his composure to bury his effort past Clint Irwin.

Kamara notched his second goal of the game to hand the visitors the lead when he converted Jimenez's low cross from the left after Tchani had released the run of the full-back down the wing.

Steve Clark kept his side ahead when he made an impressive stop to deny Doyle an equaliser in the dying minutes as he stretched out to palm the ball away from goal.

The keeper made another fine save to secure the victory for his side when he blocked an effort from Dillon Serna, while the game ended on a sour note for the Rapids as they were reduced to 10 men when Axel Sjoberg was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
