Wizards Cool Off Burn 1-0
Jul. 18, 2004
DALLAS (AP) _ Tony Meola made three saves for his MLS-record 55th career shutout, and Diego Gutierrez scored in the 42nd minute to lead the Kansas City Wizards to a 1-0 victory over the Dallas Burn on Saturday night.
Meola, the MLS leader this season with seven shutouts, helped Kansas City (9-4-4) push its unbeaten streak to eight games.
Gutierrez scored his second goal of the year, firing a shot from 10 yards into the right corner of the net. Defender Chris Klein helped set up Gutierrez by clearing the ball from outside the penalty box to forward Davy Arnaud.
Kansas City played the final 19 minutes with only 10 players after defender Shavar Thomas was ejected after receiving a red card for a hard foul on Eddie Johnson.
Dallas (5-6-5) has been shutout in consecutive games at home.
