HARRISON, N.J. – Just call him cool hand Lucas.

Lucas Zelarayán struck for a pair of late free kicks to rally Columbus Crew SC frorm a one-goal deficit into 2-1 victory over New York City FC at Red Bull Arena Saturday night.

The loss snapped NYCFC’s three-game unbeaten streak and left the team stunned and mightily disappointed.

“Very tough results in this game,”  head coach Ronny Deila said. “Today we are really organized, we are working really hard as a Club, we create quite more, so in that way I’m very happy with a lot of things the boys are doing, but of course you see that losing that way is terrible.”

The Argentine leveled the match struck in the 82nd minute firing a free kick past goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the NYCFC net as Columbus drew level to prevent what would have become a three-match goalless streak.

Zelarayán connected off another set piece five minutes into stoppage time for the game-winner.

NYCFC was nursing a 1-0 lead off Ismael Tajouri-Shradi’s first goal of the MLS season in the 18th minute.

“I had a few chances where the ball did not want to go in, but I am more than happy today that the ball finally found the net,: Tajouri-Shradi said. “It was a great feeling for me and was good for the team, but in the end if you don’t get the three points the goal doesn’t mean anything. I am happy to score but we wanted to get the three points.”

The hosts almost doubled the lead several minutes later but goalkeeper Eloy Room denied Jesus Medina off a Taty Castellanos pass.
