Kamara, 30, has been hot spicy since joining Crew SC this season, as he now totes seven goals in nine games.
The Sierra Leone forward was once again the star of the Columbus Crew side, the striker headed home Waylon Francis’ cross in the 10th minute to open the scoring for Columbus.
Seattle’s Clint Dempsey tied the match at 1-1 in the 24th minute. He was given space near the penalty arc and took advantage with a left-footed goal through traffic.
Federico Higuain gave Columbus a 2-1 lead 4 minutes after halftime. In the 58th minute, Kamara’s casual redirection of a Hector Jimenez pass made it 3-1.
Before Clint Dempsey scored his second of the day to reduce the deficit in an aggressive encounter with plenty of attacking option.
Columbus Crew next match up is against SJ Earthquakes Sunday 17, May 2015 away from home.
