FC Dallas Reserves down Laredo Heat 2-1

Peri Marosevic and Bryan Leyva find the back of the net for Dallas

FC Dallas Reserves downed USL Premier Development League side, the Laredo Heat, 2-1 in an exhibition match on the adidas field at Pizza Hut Park today. Dallas’ goals came from Home Grown player Bryan Leyva and 2009 first round selection Peri Marosevic. Laredo’s Damian Lopez scored the lone goal for the Heat.

Leyva put the home side up 1-0 in the 21st minute with a 25-yard strike to the far upper corner of the goal. The play began with a build-up down the right flank between Ricardo Villar and trialist Ryan Guy. The combination play between Villar and Guy opened space for FC Dallas to switch the ball to the opposite flank. The cross was initially won by Laredo, but Leyva found the loose ball in space and hammered it high to the far post for a one-goal lead.

In the 85th minute when Eric Alexander slid a ball inside to Marosevic. From just outside the area, Marosevic opened a shooting lane and struck a hard shot to the far post for the 2-1 victory.
