Sporting KC Vs. New York Red Bulls: Kei Kamara Makes It 1-1 At Halftime

First place is on the line in the MLS Eastern Conference tonight at LIVESTRONG Park between Sporting KC and the New York red Bulls. Sporting KC entered the night two points clear of the Red Bulls with eight games to play after tonight's contest. So far, that lead is holding steady as New York and Kansas City are tied 1-1 at halftime.

Sporting KC started the scoring with a very early goal. Kei Kamara scored in the fourth minute on a header of a cross from Teal Bunbury. Unfortunately, Kamara also had a hand in the New York goal as well.

In the 28th minute Kamara made an error on defense and was credited with an own goal, giving him the rare distinction of scoring for both teams in the same match. It is an extremely rare feat that famously happened to Ernie Brandts in the 1978 World Cup finals for the Netherlands against Italy.

Tim Cahill and Aurelien Collin each have a yellow card thus far.
