COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Justin Meram and Ryan Finley had been finding little success around the net this season. Rafinha Jersey . The recent coaching change in Columbus could have a positive effect if Wednesday night was any indication. Meram and Finley each had a goal and an assist to lead the Crew to a 2-0 win over the Houston Dynamo in the debut match for Columbus interim coach Brian Bliss. Bliss, who remains the teams technical director in charge of player personnel, moved into the coaching job after Robert Warzycha was fired Monday in his fifth season. "When youre coaching youve got a little more invested for 90 minutes than when youre sitting up in the box as the technical director," Bliss said. Meram set up Finleys goal in the 47th minute then added his first of the season in the 74th with a strike from the left side of the box to the far post, helping the Crew (9-13-5) end a two-game skid. Finleys goal came off a pass from the left flank by Meram, who redirected the ball from about six yards out. "Justin made a great play," Finley said. "It was a pretty easy tap-in. Once you get the first goal hopefully more will come." Three minutes after Finley put the Crew ahead, his penalty kick was denied by Tally Hall. Houston (10-9-7) fell to 0-2-1 in its past three matches. "Anytime theres a coaching change youre going to see guys fighting," Houston goalkeepers coach Tim Hanley said. "They want to impress. That part didnt surprise us. We had some really good chances early but we didnt capitalize." With normal PK taker Federico Higuain suspended, Bliss let Finley take it for the first time. "I wish I had that one back," Finley said. "He made a pretty good save. I thought I struck it well. I probably wont be taking many more PKs from now on." Finley got off the hook when Meram scored moments after hitting the crossbar with a shot. "Honestly, I was thinking probably not the way things were going," Finley said when asked if he was worried about not scoring this season. "Its a little bit of a relief." Still, he credited a goal-line save by Crew defender Chad Barson off a Will Bruin shot 40 seconds into the match for setting the tone. "I dont think any of this would have happened without his hard work," Meram said. "Thats an unbelievable play."

Almost 18 months after Armstrongs seven Tour wins were wiped from the record, an independent panel created by the new International Cycling Union leadership has begun work to discover the extent of the sports past problems. "I hope that anyone who does have anything to contribute would get involved." Froome told The Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday. The three-man Cycling Independent Reform Commission aims to investigate how doping happened from 1998-2013 and possible UCI complicity in helping Armstrong and his teams avoid scrutiny. "I am hoping that at the end of the day people will be able to say of it, Right, that was that era, we can now put that to bed and stop asking questions about it," Froome said. Armstrong and former UCI presidents Hein Verbruggen and Pat McQuaid will be invited for confidential, closed-door interviews with the panel which is based at Lausanne, Switzerland. None of the trio has committed publicly to meeting with the panel, which is chaired by Swiss politician and prosecutor Dick Marty. Froome said the panel could engage "not just necessarily those three, but anyone really who is part of that era and can contribute to resolving it." "Its going to be more negative publicity for the sport. Thats never good," Froome acknowledged. The Team Sky leader, who made a winning return to racing last month at the Tour of Oman, said he had not heard much tallk about the commission among current riders, who must help restore the sports credibility. Kingsley Coman Jersey. "Theres a lot of really, really talented young riders coming through the system now that I believe in personally." Froome said. "These are going to be the guys carrying the torch going forward." Froome will be 29 when he is scheduled to start defending his Tour title on July 5 in northern England -- probably with 2012 winner Bradley Wiggins alongside him. "Im confident whoever is in there, we are going to have the strongest team possible," said Froome, whose frayed relationship with Wiggins was mended in the off-season. "He can do a lot of damage to the peloton. Hes one of the best climbers in the world and we know his time trialing ability." Froome expects to follow the path both he and Wiggins followed to Tour success, competing in -- and winning -- stage-race preparations at the Tour de Romandie in Switzerland and Criterium de Dauphine in France. "I think it would be crazy to really change things up too much," Froome said. "We found it has been a good system that has worked quite well for us." Speaking at the Geneva Motor Show, on the sidelines of a Team Sky sponsors event, Froome said extra work being a Tour champion was "a bit of a juggling act" with his training program. Still, the Oman victory suggests he got the balance right. "It just backs up that I have had a really good winter preparation," Froome said. "Im where I need to be for the season coming up."
