Kansas City Wizards 3 - 0 New York Red Bulls Reserve game

The Wizards Reserves beat the New York Red Bulls Reserves 3 – 0 on Tuesday morning. Kansas City controlled the ball through most of the first half but it remained scoreless until after the break.

Marinelli was one of the starters and played the first half. Some observers were very impressed with his play. I was a little less impressed but I did think he played well. He had a rocket that went off the post late in the first half. It solidly rung the pipe.

Josh opened the scoring in the 58th minute. Wolff was freed behind the defense by a well played pass from Ryan Pore. Josh had little trouble beating the keeper 1 on 1.

The second goal was an Own Goal scored by John Gilkerson. Nelson Pizarro and Kerry Zavagnin played the give and go to give Nelson space down the wing.
Nelson crosses the top of the box.

Gilkerson dove to beat Kraus to the ball...

and slid it past his keeper. Thank you.

The third goal was a hard shot into the upper corner that Patterson had little chance on.

The game did have a few moments of emotion. Some players gather to discuss a call?

Overall, a good showing by he KC reserves. My player of the game was Pizzaro, with runner-up to Wolff and Zavagnin.
