Columbus Crew face Gyasi Zardes for first time since trade


The Crew developed a plan in the offseason at the same time they stated they saw Gyasi Zardes and Miguel Berry as two starting-caliber strikers.

That plan included the possibility of trading Zardes to the highest bidder, thus opening a designated player spot to sign a high-level striker to lift the team’s attack.

Now the Crew have the goal-scorer they were after in Cucho Hernandez, and Zardes, now with the Colorado Rapids, has scored five goals in five games and is coming off a hat trick heading into a reunion against his old club Saturday at 9 pm .

There’s a bit more on the line than just two teams in opposite conferences fighting for better playoff positioning with about two months remaining in the regular season.
