Columbus Crew SC vs New York Red Bulls (Eastern Conference Finals Leg One)

WHAT. A. NIGHT.

FULL HOUSE = CHECK

GAME PLAN = CHECK

PLAYERS CAME OUT ON FIRE = DOUBLE CHECK (especially when you score 9 seconds into the game)

NORDEKE BROUGHT THE NOISE = CHECK

A GOOD WIN WITHOUT ALLOWING THE OTHER TEAM TO SCORE = CHECK

Yes, there is another leg to come AND it's away from the friendly confines of MAPFRE stadium, BUT Columbus Crew SC took a large step and put themselves in a good position to qualify for the final and a shot at MLS Cup.
