    Rebels game
    called in 4th
    ANDOVER — The Newton Rebels got off to the start they wanted in the first game of a doubleheader against the Kansas Cannons in Andover, but Mother Nature did not cooperate.
    Newton took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth, where the game was suspended because of rain.
    In the first inning, Trent Brisboe singled, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on a Cooper Langley single. In the second inning, Justin Harris hit a two-run triple and came home on a Toby Cornejo single.
    The Cannons put two runners on base with no outs in the bottom of the fourth when the game was called.
    Seth Marlar allowed just three hits with no walks as the game was called.
    No make-up date has been set. Saturday's game against the Park City Rangers also has been postponed. It will be made up July 5 in Newton as part of a doubleheader.
    Newton plays the North Central Knights in a twinbill at 5 p.m. Sunday at Dean Evans Stadium in Salina.

    Sporting KC
    recalls Dwyer
    KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Sporting Kansas City recalled forward Dom Dwyer from his loan to USL PRO affiliate Orlando City Soccer Club on Thursday after a productive first half of the season.
    Dwyer will be available for Saturday's game against the Columbus Crew.
    "I feel confident that anywhere I am that I can score goals," said Dwyer, a production of Generation adidas. "So I'm excited to help out at Sporting KC and thank them for drafting me in the first round of last year's draft and for giving me this opportunity."
    Dwyer appeared in two MLS games as a rookie last season, but was loaned out along with three others to Orlando City in March. Together, they've helped the Lions to a 10-1-2 record midway through the season.
    "We are always aware of the loan agreement that they could call him up," Orlando City coach Adrian Heath said. "We respect that decision and it's something we knew that could happen.
    "He's a great kid to have around with a great personality," Heath said, "but we are going to continue on with our season. It's time for one or two players to step up and continue that goal scoring."
    Page 2 of 2 - The 22-year-old Dwyer scored 18 goals in all competitions for the Lions, including a record 15 in 13 league games. He scored three goals in Orlando City's surprising run to the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals and recently scored in a friendly against Brazilian champion Fluminense FC.
    "Dom has been very productive and in good form with our USL PRO affiliate," Sporting KC coach Peter Vermes said, "and we hope he can continue that same form back in Kansas City."
