Sporting Kansas City 2-0 Columbus Crew: Champs go top of the Eastern Conference

Sporting Kansas City went back to the top of the Eastern Conference after a 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew at Sporting Park on Sunday afternoon.

The home side got on the board within 10 minutes of the opening whistle. Chance Myers got a low cross off from the right flank and Paulo Nagamura’s shot was blocked. After a scramble, the ball fell to Jacob Peterson, who finished from close range.

The Crew would have equalized 31 minutes in, but Eric Kronberg produced an outstanding save to deny a low Bernardo Anor header off the line.

As Columbus looked to get back into the match, Wil Trapp tackled Benny Feilhaber from behind with 10 minutes to play, earning a second yellow card and leaving his team down a man.

As the clock ticked down, a Michael Parkhurst mistake allowed Graham Zusi to collect the ball and chip a great ball across the box to Claudio Bieler, who was left with a tap-in to seal the game.
