Metros drop one on late goal as drought continues
May 24, 2001

Kansas City MetroStars
05.24.01 · League

Onandi Lowe scored in the 92nd minute in his first MLS game to hand the MetroStars their second straight shutout defeat, 1:0. After missing numerous opportunities earlier in the game, Lowe finally put one in past Tim Howard, denying Metros the point. After being on a scoring tear early in the season, the Metros have only scored one goal in three games, and that was a penalty kick.

The Metros looked out of sync offensively in the first half, as Alex Comas was floating uselessly once again. The Metro defense hand its hands full with Lowe and Roy Lassiter, who although looked dangerous for most of the half, could not break through. The second half saw much of the same, with Metros only occasionally sustaining offensive pressure. In the end, they had probably one good chance on goal, but that went wide. The game seemed headed into overtime when Lowe took the feed from Chris Klein two minutes into injury time and ended the game.

By playing in his 92nd game, Mike Petke broke Miles Joseph's team record for most games played (regular season only). Counting all competitions, Petke is second overall to Tab Ramos, who pushed his games number to 107. Petke has 104.

Lineup: Howard, Perez, Petke, Jolley, Chung, Alvarez, Williams, Villegas, Ramos, Mathis, Comas. Subs: Faria.
