Sporting Kansas City had a tough outing on Saturday night as they were shutout 4-0 by the Philadelphia Union.

The Philadelphia Union took it to Sporting Kansas City and easily defeated them 4-0. The game started off poorly for Kansas City as they allowed the Union's Jack McInerney to score his first of two goals of the match just one minute into the game. McInerney's goal came from the left side of the six yard box and was assisted by Lionard Pajoy.

McInerney's second goal came just before the half at the 42nd minute and was at point blank range and left goalie Jimmy Nielsen with no chance of stopping the shot.

The scoring leveled off until the 81st minute when the Union were awarded a penalty shot after the foul by Aurelien Collin, and the goal was converted by Lionard Pajoy. The final goal was scored at the 87th minute by Antoine Hoppenot.

The Kansas City offense held the ball for 60 percent of the time, but they only manged three shots on goal.
