COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Crew and FC Dallas paused before their scoreless draw Sunday to support the recovery of a firefighter who was struck by lightning in the southwest parking lot of Crew Stadium.

The Major League Soccer teams were scheduled to play on Saturday night, but their game was rescheduled after Stu Tudor was hit during a pregame storm. The 54-year-old lieutenant in the Columbus Fire Department is in critical condition in the intensive care unit of the Ohio State Medical Center.

The Crew and FC Dallas held a moment of silence before the game, and fans held up signs in support of Tudor, who was off duty at the time of the strike. Columbus Fire Department Battalion Chief Tracy Smith said it's not known if Tudor was struck directly but he had to be resuscitated. Smith said it takes between two and three days to determine the effects of a possible lightning strike.

IMPACT 3, DYNAMO 0

MONTREAL (AP) — Jack McInerney scored two goals and Marco Di Vaio added another to help Montreal beat Houston.

Coming off a 0-0 draw in Vancouver on Wednesday night, the Impact (3-7-5) earned points in consecutive games for the first time since April. They are 2-1-1 in their past four games.

The Dynamo (5-10-2) have lost five games in a row, and haven't scored in a league game since May 17 — a club-record span of 479 minutes. Houston had Honduran midfielder Boniek Garcia back from the World Cup, but is still missing U.S. international Brad Davis.
