The Associated Press

SHEFFIELD, England (AP) -- Harvey Barnes' spectacular second-half strike clinched Leicester a 2-1 win at Sheffield United on Saturday for the team's first victory of the season.

The substitute crashed an unstoppable half-volley high into the net after a header was cleared to the edge of the area in the 70th minute.

Oli McBurnie headed in an equalizer for United in the 62nd, after Jamie Vardy had fired Leicester ahead with his first goal of the campaign just before halftime when he ran onto James Maddison's sumptuous pass off the outside of his boot.
