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.
