D.C. United had some help in dropping two points that were basically in the bag, but they still gave up a late equalizer to a 10-man Crew to draw 1-1.

I'm going to be saying this a lot in this write-up: Juan Guzman is a coward. On a night where D.C. United traveled to Ohio and drew the Eastern Conference-leading Columbus Crew 1-1, referee Juan Guzman is the story.

It also represents a chance to see how far the Black-and-Red have come since that 3-0 dismantling.

Federico Higuain's late first half goal was canceled out by Chris Wondolowski's early second half header as the San Jose Earthquakes and Columbus Crew settled for a 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Despite a defeat to Toronto FC last week, Crew head coach Gregg Berhalter went with the exact same starting eleven and while they came out in the opening 20 minutes with more energy, they failed to find any targets in the box on crosses.
