COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Jairo Arrieta's second goal of the game came in the 86th minute Saturday and handed the Columbus Crew a 4-3 victory over New England.
The two teams combined for five goals in a wild first half.
After trailing 2-0 early in the contest, Columbus used tallies by Federico Higuain in the 26th minute and Arrieta in the 32nd to forge a tie.
Higuain then put the Crew (10-8-6) ahead 3-2 in the 43rd minute on a pile-driving free kick that Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis was unable to stop.
New England (6-14-5) scored an equalizer in the 81st minute when Lee Nguyen converted a penalty kick after a foul on the Crew's Julius James.
But Arrieta notched the decisive tally when he slotted a shot past Reis for his fifth goal in eight games.
Ryan Guy and Jerry Bengtson got the Revolution's early goals.
