Sporting Kansas City pride themselves on being contenders, on their home field being “a fortress.” However, before last Saturday, Sporting Kansas City had gained only three points in four home matches since July 21. The trend was not ideal. So, Saturday’s 2-0 victory over visiting Chicago Fire was a welcomed (and needed) result. Momentum only exists when it is sustained.
And sustained it was. Sporting played rude hosts, overwhelming Minnesota United in a 4-0 win Wednesday evening at Children’s Mercy Park. Kansas City’s front three combined for three goals and three assists on the night, leading Sporting’s rush, and building momentum at home as the MLS stretch-drive beckons.
