Black & Gold 20

Sirk's Note: Three-goal comeback at Philadelphia

In almost 20 full seasons, Crew SC has earned three points when trailing after 75 minutes a grand total of eight times. If you make it trailing by two goals after 75 minutes, they’ve earned three points exactly ONCE.

After a lackluster hour and 15 minutes at PPL Park, the Black & Gold completed one of the most stunning comebacks in MLS history. Not only did they overcome a late two-goal road deficit in the final 15 minutes to defeat Philadelphia 3-2, but they did it in the most astounding fashion by scoring all three goals in the span of four minutes and 22 seconds. And that includes all of the time spent celebrating and getting ready for kickoff after two of the goals!

It happened like this:

  • 78': Ethan Finlay (Hector Jimenez, Tony Tchani)
  • 79': Justin Meram (Jairo Arrieta)
  • 82': Jairo Arrieta (Tony Tchani, Bernardo Anor)

Unfrigginbelievable. I still can’t believe that it happened.
