Wizards settle for 1-all tie with Burn

July 7, 2002


— Matt McKeon scored his first goal of the season to lift the Kansas City Wizards into a 1-1 tie against the Dallas Burn on Saturday night.

The Wizards (5-5-6) scored first in the 52nd minute when Dallas goalkeeper D.J. Countess deflected a shot directly into the path of McKeon, who scored.

The Burn (7-3-6) tied it 10 minutes later on Ronald Cerritos' goal. Bobby Rhine charged down the right side of the Wizards' penalty box, crossing the ball in front of the goal. Wizards' goalkeeper Tony Meola dived for the ball, but missed the save by inches as the ball rolled directly to Cerritos, who tapped it into the goal.

The Western Division rivals had struggled through a muggy 93-degree heat in a scoreless first half.

The Wizards are 0-2-6 in overtime games this season.
