Result: Orlando City put five past Columbus Crew in MLS clash

Cyle Larin scores a brace and goals from Darwin Ceren, Aurelien Collin and Cristian Higuita guide Orlando City to a 5-2 victory over Columbus Crew.

Orlando City have cruised to a 5-2 victory over Columbus Crew in their MLS clash at Citrus Bowl.

Columbus drew first blood on the six-minute mark when Federico Higuain latched on to Justin Meram's threaded ball before slotting home the opener in style.

City responded well to the setback and looked certain to equalise six minutes later when Luke Boden passed across the face of goal for Cyle Larin, but his side-footed effort was straight at goalkeeper Steve Clark.

However, the hosts did eventually draw level on 18 minutes when Larin squeezed between two defenders to tap home Corey Ashe's perfectly-weighted ball.

Tyler Turner came to the rescue just before the half-hour mark when he preserved parity by blocking Tony Tchani's header on the line.

It proved a crucial intervention as Darwin Ceren completed the turnaround on 38 minutes when his vicious half-volley from outside the six-yard box flew into the top corner for a half-time lead.

In the second half, Larin extended his side's advantage when he latched on to Ashe's low cross into the box before striking a first-time left footed effort past Clarke into the bottom corner.

Aurelien Collin put the game beyond doubt for the home side when he powered a header past Clark from Boden's corner at the near post.

City added a fifth goal when Cristian Higuita guided the ball past Clark from close range with his head, although the Crew got one back just before the full-time whistle as Collin steered the ball into his own net.
