COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Robbie Keane scored in the 64th minute to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-1 draw with Columbus in the Crew’s first match since the death of rookie midfielder Kirk Urso on Aug. 5.

The Crew (8-8-5) controlled the first half but couldn’t score until Jairo Arrieta’s skimming 22-yarder eluded goalkeeper Josh Saunders in the 47th minute.

Keane tied it for LA (11-11-4) with a tap-in off a goalmouth pass from the right side by Sean Franklin.

Urso died at age 22 and the team honored him in several ways with a video tribute and a moment of silence as well as armbands and patches on their jersey with Urso’s No. 15 before a crowd of 17,019 at Crew Stadium.
