Sporting KC Defeats Montreal 3-1

With a 3-1 road win over Montreal on Wednesday night, Sporting KC moved their record to 10-5-2. They are now only one point behind first-place D.C. United in the Eastern Conference of MLS.

After both teams finished the first half scoreless, Montreal struck first in the second, with Patrice Bernier scoring a goal in the 49th minute.

That seemed to awaken the Sporting players, who exploded for three goals in the next 25 minutes. The first two came from penalties, as Sporting attacked the box and were rewarded for their aggression by the referees.

Six minutes after he scored Montreal's only goal, Bernier was penalized for a handball, which Kei Kamara converted into the back of the net. The winning goal came in the 74th minute, with Graham Zusi scoring on a penalty drawn by Soony Saad while fighting for position in a corner kick.

In the 83rd minute, Jacob Peterson sealed the game, scoring on a cross from Roger Espinoza that deflected off of one of the Montreal defenders.
