2012 MLS Standings: Kansas City 3 Points Out In Supporter's Shield Race

The Supporter's Shield race in MLS this season has been a two dog race for quite some time between the San Jose Earthquakes and Sporting Kansas City. Both teams are currently in first place of their respective divisions, though the Quakes currently have the overall lead. With seemingly no intentions of slowing down regarding their form, the Earthquakes are starting to look like the all-out favorites to take the trophy given to the league's best team.

Sporting KC is right behind them, though, with 50 points to San Jose's 53. Both teams have seven games left to play on their 2012 schedules, which should keep it a close race all the way until the end when the playoffs begin -- at that point, the two teams can look forward to a hopeful meeting between the two top teams in the league in the MLS Cup Final.

Kansas City will take on the Houston Dynamo on Friday in a matchup between playoff teams as Sporting looks to keep themselves in the race for their second trophy of the season.
