Reserves Come From Behind Again

While the first team could not come back from a 2-0 deficit, the Wizards reserves could, coming from behind to beat Toronto FC 3-2 today after the first team game. TFC grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first 26 minutes, before Ryan McMahen scored a blast from 30 yards out right before half time. In the second half, the Wizards continued to fight back, with Scott Sealy grabbing the equalizer in the 70th minute. In a crowd, Sealy was able to get his foot on the ball and hit it off the underside of the cross bar and in. Five minutes later, the Wizards had the winner, guest player, Nelson Pizzaro played the ball across the middle, where it was met by Jonathan Leathers who slotted the ball under the keeper for the winner.

Hillcrest Road has their report up on the game. Lineup for the game is here:
Eric Kronberg, Jonathan Leathers, Rauwshan McKenzie, Aaron Hohlbein, Matt Marquess, Nelson Pizarro, Ryan McMahen, Carlos Marinelli (Michael Kraus 33), Sasha Victorine (Yomby William 46), Eloy Colombano, Scott Sealy

Subs Not Used: Boris Pardo, Geoff Miles, Josh Howard

UPDATE: The Hillcrest Road write up gives credit to the second goal to Matt Marquess, not Scott Sealy.

McMahen has scored, I think, in each of the last reserve matches. Give him a look with the first team!
