Dallas Burn blank
Wizards in MLS play
Kansas City, Mo. (ap) -- Jason Kreis scored the only goal as the Dallas Burn clinched the fourth and final playoff spot from the MLS's West Division with a victory over the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday night.
The Burn (15-16) eliminated the Wizards (12-19) as Kansas City, also shut out 1-0 in Chicago by the Fire on Thursday, needed at least a win or a draw to stay in playoff contention.
The Wizards, who had just two shots on goal in Chicago, had 12 against Burn goalkeeper Mark Dodd.
