It felt like it just was not going to be Sporting Kansas City’s day. A few miscues messed with their rhythm. An injury. Possession but no fruition. And a two-goal deficit at home to a surging FC Dallas. Then Johnny Russell’s goal cut that lead in half in the 53rd minute. As Sporting lifted their effort entire, a result seemed to be coming.
Sporting Kansas City (6-3-2) came into the match off their first win – 1-0 at home over Minnesota United FC last Sunday – after two losses and two draws, while FC Dallas (4-2-4) had put together back-to-back triumphs.
