Top overall performer/Top Crew performer
Lucas Zelarayán (25 points) – It’s a beautiful time, as the top overall performer for Week 21 is also a member of the Crew. Zelarayán takes home the honors in what was a whirlwind of a week for the Black & Gold. On Wednesday, despite a goal from Zelarayán, Columbus lost late in dramatic fashion to CF Montreal. The Crew then had a quick turnaround at home against New York City FC, and the Armenian international rose to the occasion and put in his best performance of the 2022 season to save the Black & Gold from dropping back-to-back games at home.
Over two matches, Zelarayán played 163 minutes (4 points), scored three goals (15 points), registered one assist (3 points), helped to hold Montreal scoreless in the time he was on the pitch (1 point) and took nine shots (2 points).
