The Crew squared off against the IMG Academy Under-19 team this afternoon, defeating the youth squad 4-0, in its second preseason match of the day.
Forward Jason Garey was the story in today’s afternoon match, as he provided three of the Crew’s four goals. Garey started things off in the fourth minute when he took a pass from Kamil Witkowski and sent his shot into the back of the net for the opening tally.
Then in the 25th minute, Eric Brunner sent a long clearance into IMG’s half of the field, which Garey took on a breakaway that eventually led to his second score of the afternoon, putting the Crew up 2-0.
Twenty-five minutes later, Garey struck yet again when rookie midfielder Dilly Duka found him with a nifty pass into space and Garey did the rest with a clinical finish past the IMG goalkeeper.
Duka picked up his second assist of the match on the Crew’s fourth and final goal when his corner kick found the feet of Adam Moffat, who quickly struck for his first goal of the 2010 preseason.
The Crew will now return to training over the next several days before taking on D.C. United this Saturday, Feb. 13.
