Reserves Lose Too

The Wizards reserves followed the example of the first team, and lost 3-2 to the Columbus Crew in reserve league play today. Like the first team, the reserves fell behind 2-0 early. Unlike last night, though, the reserves fought back and Ryan Pore scored right before the half to make it 2-1. In the second half, the Wizards controlled the play, especially down their left wing. Matt Marquess on one of those runs, drew a penalty kick that Pore put away to tie the game at 2-2. The Wizards continued to have the better of possession, with Roger Espinoza and Ivan Trujillo have penalty shouts turned aside. Late in the match, the Crew struck again for the winner, giving them a clean sweep of the two games against the Wizards.

On a positive note, the Wizards supporters group defeated the Crew supporters in a match before the reserve game. While their team had more Wizards fans then Crew fans on it to make up numbers, they were still on the losing end, giving only a small amount of solace to Wizards fans.
