Sporting KC

After a tough loss in the season opener game to New York City FC on March 4, the current Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup champion and former MLS cup winner has shown it needs to improve on its scoring and defense in order to continue the team's success from previous seasons. 

Behind two first half goals from Daniel Salloi and Diego Rubio, Sporting KC cruised to a 2-1 victory over the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon to move within a point of the Western Conference lead. The team will face the current Western Conference leading Vancouver Whitecaps next Saturday. 

A red card on former Sporting KC player Krisztián Nemeth in the early stages of Saturday's game led to an ultimate 3-1 victory for Kansas City over the New England Revolution. Sporting KC will face the New York Red Bulls in the U.S. Open Cup Final next Wednesday at Children's Mercy Park.

 After not participating in Sporting Kansas City’s 1-1 tie against Real Salt Lake Saturday night, and then not being present for training on Tuesday morning, Sporting KC has confirmed that Dom Dwyer will be transferred to Orlando City Soccer Club.
