Kansas City Wizards 5 - 0 Arizona Sahuaros

Update: The team will be putting a post up later today but I was told that some of the information that I provided was incorrect.

The last goal was scored by Casian, not Pizzaro. Escobar is not there yet so he was not the one that got a red card. The unknown defender was not McKenzie, he has been waived.

Kansas City defeated the Arizona Sahuaros in the Wizards first preseason game. Kansas City played 3 full teams for 30 minutes each. The first team scored 4 goals and the third team added one as well.

Thanks to Dennis St. Lawrence for providing these details.

The goals were as follows:
6:00 – Wolff - Wizards played a short corner from Espinoza to Arnaud and
back to Espinoza who crossed it into Wolff who headed it in.
9:00 – Wolff – Zoltan sent a nice ball in the middle which Wolff one-timed
in.
10:00 – Zoltan – Fuzetti had a nice assist
16:00 – Fuzetti scored pounding a ball in from the back side.
77:00 – Pizzaro – diving header from the left side

Here were the line-ups for each thirty minutes:
GK – Crayton
Leathers, Conrad, Holbein, Harrington
Arnaud, trialist X, Fuzetti, Espinoza
Wolff, Zoltan

Zoltan looked really good, and Wolff was finishing. There were
several bad passes (poor decisions) by veterans, that would have cost
us if playing a higher level team.

30-60 Minutes:
GK – Alex Horwrath
??? (possibly McKenzie), Cardenas, Besler, Aiyegbusi
Casian, Auvray, Hirsig, Smith
Bunbury, Kamara

The second group just did not seem to all be on the same page and both
Kei and Teal appeared to be frustrated – really not many opportunities
to show themselves. Cardenas played well on defense with that group as
did Besler. Smith made some good runs and Casian showed potential.

60-90 Minutes:
GK – Boris Pardo
Kostrov, Sarkodie, Gehring, Escobar?
Zusi, Myer, Souter, Pizarro
Kraus, Brown
I think it was Zusi created the play that Pizarro scored on. Escobar
was red-carded for a rough tackle in the 80th minute. This group did
created scoring chances.

Morsink was nursing some injury so did not play.

It was in the 60’s and rained some during the middle and end of the game.
It was evident that it was early in the season and that they have not
played together much.
