Three teams win in stoppage time on road
[VIDEO PICK: MLS] The Columbus Crew made it three wins in three games to start the season for the first time ever in stunning fashion as Justin Meram's goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time gave the Crew a 2-1 win at Seattle.
Meram's goal came seconds after the Crew thought it had the winner, but a
Bernardo Anor shot from was cleared off the line by Oswaldo Alonso.
On the ensuing corner kick, Meram took Federico Higuain's short pass
and curled a perfectly placed shot past goalkeeper Stefan Frei to secure the win.
Two other games were decided in stoppage time as New England won for the first
time in 2014 with a 2-1 victory at San Jose on Lee Nguyen's breakaway goal off a quick restart, and Dom Dwyer's
near-post blast gave Sporting Kansas City 3-2 win at Colorado.
Justin Meram (90+4 minute, Seattle 1 Columbus 2):
Dom Dywer (90+2 minute, Colorado 2 Sporting KC
Lee Nguyen (90+3 minute, San Jose 1
New England 2):
