All Stars Lose

The MLS All Stars loss to a foreign opponent for the first time tonight in Salt Lake as Everton defeated in penalty kicks. After Everton took the lead through Louis Saha, Brad Davis tied the game for All Stars. The second half stayed 1-1 and went into PKs. Tim Howard saved 3 PKs, including one by Wizards midfielder, Davy Arnaud, while Kasey Keller saved one and had one go wide. The final was 4-3 Everton in the PK shootout.

Arnaud came on in the 63rd minute for the All Stars and had a few good moments, including a diving header late in the second half that he probably should of done better with, as it had plenty of power but was right at Howard, who paried the shot away. In the PK shootout, Arnaud went 3rd for the All Stars. It put his shot high to Howards right, but Howard was able to get his arm up on his dive and touch the ball away. Not a horrible shot, but a good save by Howard on Arnaud.
