COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Emilio Renteria's stoppage-time goal provided the difference Saturday in the Columbus Crew's 2-1 victory over Montreal.

Chad Marshall had erased a 1-0 deficit in the 80th minute for the Crew on a set piece by Federico Higuain, who fed a pass that Marshall finished with a header over Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins.

Higuain -- who now has three goals and six assists in five games -- also set up Renteria's game-winner in the 93rd minute, delivering a pass to the Venezuelan for an easy shot past Perkins.

The Crew (12-8-6) used the victory to forge a third-place tie with Houston.

Marco Di Vaio scored in the 73rd minute for the Impact (12-14-3), who saw their five-game winning streak snapped.
