Toronto FC’s home winning streak ends with 0-0 tie against Kansas City You’d think the Canandian Press would realize a “tie” is a game and a “draw” is when that tie ends with both teams having the same score 🙂
Wizards winless streak hits seven Pretty much same story as above only appeared on KC-MLS

Wizards, Toronto FC battle to scoreless tie Finally a KC Star story
If someone reads all the above stories they get a cookie.
KC remains in last place in the East. Three points behind DC United depending on their result today. Overall KC are just 2 points ahead of San Jose. We are 14 points out of Supporters Shield but only 6 points out of 8th playoff spot (Which is held by Chicago right now, could be DC at day’s end).
Wizards played better than last week but still not well. Starting lineup saw Myers and Leathers to the bench with Jack Jewsbury at right back. Roger Espinoza played left mid and Carlos Marinelli rode the pine the whole game. Midfield were Sasha Victorine and Kerry Zavagnin. Hohlbein started over Wahl again in central defense. Kurt Morsink, Ryan Pore and Jon Leathers were the subs for the game, replacing Zavagnin, Sealy and Lopez. Espinoza got a straight red card for an open handed shove in the back of a players head in the 93rd minute. Not good Roger cause you had a pretty good game.
Scott Sealy still needs to finish. He’s not a target forward at all. But he did have some chances. One header he should have put a way for sure. Lopez was his usually self and Arnaud was fine on the right. Leathers had the best chance to score when he came on – in the midfield actually – but his left footed shot went wide. I thought that Micheal Harrington had the best game of any of the players. Holding on defense and coming forward a lot. He and Roger played off each other really well.
The defense was good this game and Hartman didn’t have much to do. Jimmy and Aaron seemed to do well though on one play they both went to Amado, right at the top of the box, and left another player wide open, luckily Amado flubbed the ball. Jack did well at right back. Kerry though was slow in the game. He was doing a lot of chasing of players when the ball was cleared from the TFC end.
So, 0-0 was the result. KC did outshoot TFC which was nice. Still need to make better passes. Passing is reckless and too hopeful.
Best player goes to Harrington, then Lopez and finally, no one will agree with this, Roger Espinoza. Too bad you won’t be starting next week.
And for those of you that notice, no I haven’t given top 3 for the C-bus game. They were Lopez, Jewsbury and Arnaud. Totals later.
Next up is home game against RSL.
Happy 28th Birthday Davy. Last player to have a birthday got released. Pretty sure it isn’t gonna happen to you.
