First Published Jun 29 2014 11:05 pm • Last Updated Jun 29 2014 11:05 pm

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 their game, and fans held up signs in support of Tudor, who was off duty at the time of the strike.

"Here, you have a man like that who saves lives on a regular basis, who comes out on his off day to see us play," Crew forward Justin Meram said. "For something like that to happen to him, we’re hoping for the best for him and his family."

Dallas defender Zach Lloyd said he and his teammates were affected by the situation.

"I know a lot of guys were thinking about his family and their well-being," he said. "That was tough for our group. I think we did a good job of refocusing for the game."

Impact 3, Dynamo 0 • In Montreal, 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 earned points in consecutive games for the first time since April. They are 2-1-1 in their past four games. The Dynamo have lost five games in a row, and haven’t scored in a league game since May 17.
