COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Dominic Oduro scored in the 93rd minute and the Montreal Impact rallied to tie the Columbus Crew 4-4 on Saturday night.

Didier Drogba had a glancing header of Ambroise Oyongo’s long throw in and Oduro was left open at the far post for an easy finish.

Montreal (4-3-3) was down 4-1 early in the second half but Drogba pulled the Impact within 4-2 on a penalty kick in the 57th minute and Ignacio Piatti cut it to 4-3 a minute later when he finished Oduro’s back pass.

Kei Kamara opened the scoring in the 16th minute for Columbus (2-4-3) after heading home Justin Meram’s cross. Piatti tied it at 1-1 in the 26th minute on a curled shot, but Kamara gave the Crew a 2-1 lead in first-half stoppage time. Kamara ran past the Impact defense to win Michael Parkhurst’s long ball, pulling out goalkeeper Evan Bush, and Kamara touched the ball into the open net.

Federico Higuain made it 3-1 in the 48th by controlling a loose ball in the 6-yard box and easing a ball into the back of the net. Higuain scored his second goal in five minutes when he netted a penalty kick to put Columbus up 4-1.
