The Columbus Crew scored a home victory over Premier League opposition Tuesday night, defeating Stoke City 2-1 in a friendly at Crew Stadium.

Stoke got on the board first in the 23rd minute when Ryan Shotton's cross found Jon Walters, who opened the scoring with a header.

The Crew turned the tables in the game's final 20 minutes, thanks to two home grown players. First, Aaron Horton scored in the 71st minute, then Ben Speas scored with only minutes left off a deflected cross to give Columbus the win.
