Wizards Win!

In their final preseason tuneup, Kansas City defeated Real Salt Lake 1-0 in the Saturn Challenge Cup in Norman, Oklahoma.  Captain Jimmy Conrad (pictured here after the Wizards 1-0 win versus FC Dallas in the inaugural game in 2006) finished off a Carlos Marinelli set piece in the 65th minute to lead the boys in blue to victory. 

RSL was without last year’s leading scorer Robbie Findley, Generation Adidas players Chris Seitz and Nikolas Besagno, as well as Nathan Sturgis, Kenny Deuchar, Nikolas Besagno, and Brennan Tennelle.  Claudio Lopez did not appear for KC.

Play-by-play commentary is available on the KCW team blog, the RSL team blog, and RSLFM.com (with pics).
