Lost in the hoopla of the Crew's dramatic and unprecedented 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Union was a milestone set by Black & Gold 'keeper Steve Clark. By making four saves against the Union, Clark hit 102 on the season and thus surpassed the 100-save milestone in his first season between the goalposts for the Crew.

In doing so, Clark became the first club goalkeeper to reach the century mark in stops since Andy Gruenebaum in 2012 (124 saves). Clark and Gruenebaum are the only two Black & Gold goalkeepers to hit 100+ saves over the club's last 10 seasons.

The all-time Crew list of 100+ save seasons is below:

Name Year Saves
Tom Presthus 2001 136
Jon Busch 2004 132
Brad Friedel 1997 131
Andy Gruenebaum 2012 124
Mark Dougherty 2000 111
Mark Dougherty 1999 106
Juergen Sommer 1998 106
Steve Clark 2014 104
Jon Busch 2003 104

Anthony Precourt joined MLS ExtraTime Radio recently to discuss the #NewCrew reveal event and the club's future as Columbus Crew SC. Among the questions Precourt received was why the club decided to change to "Crew SC" as opposed to "Crew FC."

"We are in the heartland of America," said the club's Chairman and Investor-Operator. "The Ohio State Buckeyes are extremely relevant in town. We thought it was important to differentiate ourselves from football ... We play soccer here, we don't play football."

Steve Clark has made 19 saves over the past four matches for the Crew. Only one other club has received more saves from its starting goalkeeper over that span (Real Salt Lake, 22). Conversely, Philadelphia, this weekend’s opponent, has received just five saves from its starting goalkeepers (Zac MacMath and Rais Mbolhi) over that span, which is the lowest total of any MLS club. 

Finlay secured his ninth goal of the campaign last weekend at New England. With that tally, Finlay became one of just three Americans under the age of 25 to record at least nine goals in MLS this season. The Marshfield, Wisconsin native joins LA’s Gyasi Zardes (16 goals) and Houston’s Will Bruin (10) on that list. 


The Crew and the Union first met this season on March 22. In the time span from that date until Saturday’s meeting on October 11, 203 days will have passed. That gap is the longest timeframe between meetings of the Crew and any other Eastern Conference opponent this season by a wide margin, exceeding the 108 days between the Black & Gold’s battles with the Houston Dynamo on May 7 and August 23.
