KANSAS CITY, Kan. Kevin Souter, who made the Kansas City Wizards roster on an open tryout, scored his first MLS goal in a 2-0 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night.
Souter, who signed in April and made his debut last week, came in as a sub in the 76th minute for forward Abe Thompson. Josh Wolff sent a cross into the area three minutes later, and Souter used the outside of his left foot to flick the ball over keeper Greg Sutton.
Jack Jewsbury converted a penalty kick in the 63rd minute for the Wizards (8-9-8), who earned their first back-to-back wins since opening the season with victories over D.C. United and Colorado. Toronto FC (7-12-6), which didn't record a shot on goal all night, is winless in five matches.
Kevin Hartman recorded his ninth shutout despite not making a save.
Sutton kept Toronto in the match with two first-half saves. But in the 61st minute, Tyrone Marshall fouled Wolff on a run through the penalty area. Sutton guessed correctly on Jewsbury's kick, diving to his left, but the ball sailed past his outstretched fingers for a 1-0 lead.
Jewsbury will have to sit out Kansas City's next game after getting a yellow card for a reckless foul in second-half stoppage time.
