Kamara Gives Sporting KC 2-1 Win Over FC Dallas
KANSAS CITY, Kan (AP) – Kei Kamara atoned for a missed penalty kick with a goal in the 88th minute to give Sporting Kansas City a 2-1 victory over FC Dallas on Sunday night.
Graham Zusi had two assists for Sporting (3-0), giving him an MLS-leading four in three games.
Dallas keeper Kevin Hartman saved Kamara’s penalty in the 51st minute, but Kamara gave Sporting the win when he slashed into the area and fired home Chance Myers’ cross. Zusi’s pass to Myers set up the play.
Dallas (1-1-1) became the first team to score on Sporting this season on Ricardo Villar’s free kick in the 25th minute.
Aurelien Collin equalized with a header in first-half stoppage time, off a free kick by Zusi. It was the 700th goal in club history for Sporting.
