Nkufo scores 3 goals, Sounders beat Crew 4-0

Sep 19, 2010 - 1:50 AM COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Blaise Nkufo scored the first three goals of his Major League Soccer career to help the Seattle Sounders beat the Columbus Crew 4-0 on Saturday night.

Nkufo, playing his sixth MLS game, scored on a rebound in the fourth minute, struck again in the 39th and completed the hat trick in the 75th.

Nathan Sturgis converted a penalty kick in the 42nd minute for his first MLS goal.

Seattle (10-9-6) is 6-1-3 in its last 10 games.
