Youngest/Oldest Goal Scorers for Sporting KC

More statistics, this time I'm updating my list of the youngest and oldest goal scorers for Kansas City in league play and in all competitions.

In league play, no new players joined the list in 2014. A number of Kansas City's draft picks could join this list should they score in the 2015 season though, so there could be some shake up here.

1. Soony Saad - 19 years, 0 days - 8/17/2011 vs Portland
2. Yura Movsisyan - 19 years, 293 days - 4/25/2007 vs Toronto
3. Oriol Rosell - 20 years, 56 days - 9/1/2012 vs Toronto
4. Teal Bunbury - 20 years, 137 days - 7/14/2010 vs Columbus
5. Francisco Gomez - 20 years, 146 days - 6/20/1999 vs New York
6. Michael Harrington - 21 years,  80 days - 4/14/2007 vs DC
7. Scott Vermillion - 21 years, 243 days - 8/23/1998 vs Miami
8. Roger Espinoza - 21 years, 266 days - 7/17/2008 vs Columbus
9. Ryan Pore - 21 years, 344 days - 9/3/2005 vs New York
10. Eddie Johnson - 22 years, 1 day - 4/1/2006 vs Columbus
11. Chris Brown - 22 years, 31 days - 4/10/1999 vs San Jose
12. CJ Sapong - 22 years, 82 days - 3/19/2011 vs Chivas
13. Jose Burciaga - 22 years, 223 days - 6/26/2004 vs San Jose
14. Matt McKeon - 22 years, 240 days - 5/22/1997 vs Columbus
15. Matt Taylor - 22 years, 246 days - 6/19/2004 vs New England
16. Vicente Figueroa - 22 years, 299 days - 8/16/2000 vs San Jose
17. Davy Arnaud - 22 years, 350 days - 6/7/2003 vs New York
18. Dom Dwyer - 23 years, 4 days - 8/3/2013 vs New York
19. Jack Jewsbury - 23 years, 39 days - 5/22/2004 vs Dallas
20. Chris Klein - 23 years, 124 days - 5/8/1999 vs LA

In all competitions, Kansas City had two additions to the list. The lone goals by Kevin Ellis and Alex Martinez in 2014 saw both of them jump onto the list. The pair knocked Davy Arnaud and Dom Dwyer off the list of goal scorers in all competitions.

I forgot Eddie Johnson was that young when he was here.
