Martinez Sent Off in Crazy Finish - Former SKC Wizards Update

Former Sporting KC midfielder, Alex Martinez was sent off this past week for Orange County in a crazy finish in their 2-1 loss to Wilmington. The craziness started in second half stoppage time with the game tied 1-1. Orange County won a corner kick. Martinez went over to take the kick, but before he could, some pushing in the box, just in front of the goalkeeper, led to a pair of red cards, one to a player on each team. Wilmington's Andrae Campbell had to be restrained by his teammates. As he left the field, a Wilmington coach followed him to escort him to the locker room. As he passed the corner flag where the ball was still set up for the corner, with the referee's back turned, the Wilmington coach kicked the ball away from the spot. Martinez took exception to this and after a quick appeal to the referee, followed after the coach and gave him a push. Th referee came over and spoke with Martinez and eventually gave him a red card. After Martinez appealed for a minute he turned and ran after the Wilmington coach who had kicked the ball away. The field cleared as the rest of the teams followed Martinez. After everything was cleared up, Wilmington scored a late winner.  Check out the game here, the fun begins around the 2 hour 25 minute mark.

Think SKC could use Mechack Jerome. Had some good performances last year. Better than Igor

haha, Mechack Jerome better than Ijor Juliao

Peter Vermes certainly doesnt think so and if you cant get a single minute in the Impact's backline, its rather telling
