Crew rallies for tie in Champions League

Steven Lenhart scored two second-half goals to rally the Columbus
Crew to a 2-2 tie against Toluca of Mexico on Tuesday in the first
leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series.

Lenhart cut the 2-0 deficit in the 66th minute with a
half-volley 13 yards off goal. He tied it in the 84th minute from
nearly the same spot on the right side of the penalty area.

Antonio Naelson Sinha scored in the 19th minute and Antonio
Rios in the 45th for Toluca.

The return match of the two-game, total goals series is March
17 at Toluca.

Major League Soccer teams have lost 10 of 11 knockout series
to Mexican clubs in the competition.

The game was the first for an MLS team since the collective
bargaining agreement expired on Feb. 25.
