CARSON, Calif. -- Federico Higuain scored early in the second half as Columbus beat Chivas USA 3-0 on Saturday night in the teams' regular-season opener.

Josh Williams and Dominic Oduro added late goals for the Crew.

Higuain's score came in the 51st minute as he lined up a 25-yard shot that went in off the right post. In the 88th minute, Williams knocked in a ball off a corner kick sent in by Eddie Gaven in the 88th minute to make it 2-0.

In stoppage time, Oduro raced 75 yards after a Chivas coner kick, got around Chivas' Dan Kennedy and easily finished into an empty goal.

Chivas featured nearly an entirely different roster from 2012. Seven players -- including five on loan from Chivas Guadalajara -- made their MLS debuts, as did coach Jose Luis Sanchez Sola.

Referee Chris Penso handed out four yellow cards to Chivas.
