Sporting news: Reserves draw with Dallas, Harrington to start Saturday

Sporting KC's reserve team drew 2-2 with FC Dallas on Tuesday night at the Swope Park Training Center.

KC's goals came from Michael Thomas and Dom Dwyer. The reserves are 1-2-2 in the Central Conference.

• With Seth Sinovic sidelined recovering from surgery on a broken hand, Peter Vermes told

today that one-time starter Michael Harrington will fill in against Montreal this Saturday.

"I had the offseason to take off and kind of refocus, make a fresh start and just kind of start over with a good work ethic and a good mentality coming in," Harrington told "I knew that the team would probably be the team that did so well from the end of the season last year, so I just kind of came in, didn’t put too much pressure on myself and just tried to keep a really good mentality, kind of hoping this day would come."

Harrington has played just one minute this year, but was the starting right back to start the 2011 season.
