Miami, Fla. – The Miami FC closed out its preseason schedule, Saturday, with a matchup against the Miami Fusion. An offensive flurry led to four goals as Miami FC shut out Fusion.

Forward Jaime Chavez opened the scoring in the fourth minute, slipping the ball into the back of the net after receiving a pass from the left wing.

Just eleven minutes into the second half, midfielder Blake Smith tallied the third goal of the night with left-footed shot, beating the keeper to the far post.

Substitute Pablo Campos put the game away, scoring on an open goal after some nifty passing in the penalty area.
