[MLS] Tommy Heinemann tallied twice and Bernardo Anor scored one goal and set up another as the Crew reversed a loss to New England last weekend by beating the Revs, 3-1, at the Atlanta Pro Soccer Challenge in Kennesaw, Ga.

Ilija Stolica scored for New England, which lost for the first time in preseason. It had run its record to 4-0 by beating the Crew, 2-1, on Saturday in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Columbus connected on its first shot in the 16th minute and scored again a minute later to take a 2-0 lead. Anor got the first goal by gliding into the penalty area unmarked to head home Robbie Rogers' free kick from the left flank, and Heinemann capitalized on a fluffed back pass by defender A.J. Soares to chip a nice goal over keeper Matt Reis and under the crossbar.

The Crew cut open the Revs eight minutes into the second half for its third goal. Anor ended a lengthy passing sequence with a square ball that Heinemann poked into the open net. New England got its goal in the 62nd minute on a passing move of its own, with Zach Schilawski providing the final pass for Stolica to drive high into the net.

New England concludes its preseason schedule Sunday in the final Atlanta Pro Soccer Challenge match against Houston; the game will be televised live on Comcast SportsNet New England (3 p.m. ET). The Crew plays Houston Friday.
