May 11, 2013 at 11:57 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 11 (UPI) -- Former Columbus star Edson Buddle scored in the 8th minute Saturday and the Colorado Rapids went on to a 2-0 win over the Crew.

Buddle, who supplied 42 goals in 106 games for Columbus from 2001-05, gave the Rapids all the scoring they would need early in the contest when he fired in a ball left for him in the middle of the box by Atiba Harris.

Dillon Powers doubled the advantage in the 69th minute as Colorado (4-4-3) improved to 4-1-2 in its last seven games.

The Crew, meanwhile, fell to 3-4-3 with their second straight home defeat.
