Crew Blank United


UPDATED: Saturday April 27, 2013 11:13 PM

Dominic Oduro, Josh Williams and Federico Higuain scored in the first half to help the Columbus Crew beat D.C. United 3-0 on Saturday night after a videoboard fire delayed the start 50 minutes.
 
The teams were warming up when the blaze broke out in the top of the videoboard in a speaker cabinet above the south stands about 25 minutes before the scheduled kickoff. Fans were cleared from the area and no one was injured, team president Mark McCullers said.
 
Oduro put the Crew (3-2-3) ahead in the 15th, Williams scored off Higuain's corner kick in the 26th, and Higuain a penalty kick in in first-half stoppage time.
 
D.C. (1-6-1) has lost five straight.
