4/1/09: Guest Player Tony Labudovski Has Good Showing

Scored lone goal in Crew Reserves victory on Sunday.

Tony Labudovski scored the lone goal in the Crew Reserves game on Sunday, Labudovski collected a ball from Stanley Nyazamba in the 29th minute and struck it into the net to give the Crew Reserves a 1-0 win over the University of Louisville. Labudovski originally from Reynoldsburg, Ohio went to Wright State where he scored 20 goals and 9 assists as a left midfielder during his career. Labudovski led Wright State in 2005 with 9 goals and made Horizon League's All First Team. If I had to guess from his bio page which has Labudovski playing in 2003, 2004, and 2005. Labudovski must have missed the 2006 season because of some sort of injury as in college you get only four years of eligibility. Because here are some match reports from 2007 with Labudovski in the Wright State lineup. Then in 2008 Labudovski went overseas to play for Vagnharad SK of the Swedish Third Division which apparently doesn't have a website, wikipedia page, or much else in the way of information online. However, Crew fans that know of Labudovski said he tallied 9 goals and 5 assists during his season over there.

Has been at the Info Sport Combine the last couple of years:
Not a bad review in 2008or 2009. But, not amazing reviews either.

Anyways, either we are bringing Labudovski in because of injuries and we need warm bodies for the Reserves. Or Pat Noonan's injury may be worse then we all expected and we may have a roster spot open for half the season until Noonan comes back from a possible injured reserve designation. That's a little speculation as the Crew probably brings in extra bodies all the time for reserve matches.
