COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Columbus Crew closed out its remarkable 22-year run at Historic Crew Stadium by beating Chicago 2-0 Saturday night.

This was the first full capacity game at Historic Crew Stadium since March 1, 2020.

Zardes recorded a record-breaking 32nd goal at Historic Crew Stadium 17 minutes later thanks to great ball control and an unselfish pass from Derrick Etienne Jr.
