COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)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.
