08-08-08: Wizards Weekly Update

08/08/2008 8:00 AM - The Kansas City Wizards train this week with Chivas USA in mind as the team prepares for a rematch against last year's opponent in the Western Conference semifinal series. Kansas City defeated Chivas 1-0 at home on the strength of a long-range free kick goal from Davy Arnaud, then tied 0-0 in Los Angeles to advance to the conference finals. Kansas City qualified for the playoffs as the 5th place team in the Eastern Conference and switched over to play in the West by having more points than the 4th place team in that conference. The Wizards will train at 5 p.m. Tuesday as the team holds an organization-wide picnic at the conclusion of practice. The Wizards will then train at CommunityAmerica Ballpark Wednesday.
