MLS wrap: Sporting KC keep pressure on

5 August 2012 13:39

Sporting Kansas City kept pace with Houston Dynamo on top of the MLS Eastern Conference on Saturday with a 1-0 win over New England.

In a tight tussle at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts it was the visitors who came away with the three points thanks to Teal Bunbury's 20th-minute strike.

The win moved Sporting equal with Eastern Conference leaders Houston on 40 points.

Elsewhere in the Eastern Conference, Chicago Fire enjoyed a 2-1 home win over lowly Toronto FC.

The visitors left the crowd in Illinois stunned in the early going with a 16th-minute goal from Jamaican striker Ryan Johnson giving Toronto the lead.

But Chicago fired back in the second period, with goals from Marco Pappa and Austin Berry lifting them past the Canadian franchise.

DC United moved within two points of the Red Bulls in fourth place when a strike from Chris Pontius powered them to a 1-0 triumph over Columbus Crew at Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium.

Montreal Impact had goals from Andrew Wenger and Felipe Martins to thank for their 2-0 home win over Philadelphia Union in a spiteful affair that saw Montreal's Nelson Rivas and Philadelphia's Jack McInerney both sent off in an ugly second-half incident.

Rivas was dismissed first for a head butt on Union substitute Antoine Hoppenot, with McInerney seeing red for his retaliatory strike.

In the Western Conference, Real Salt Lake missed the chance to go top of the table when they slumped to a 1-0 defeat away to the struggling Colorado Rapids.

Joseph Nane scored the only goal of the game seven minutes before half-time.
