Sporting KC net three in 14 minutes, snap Revs' unbeaten streak

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) — Krisztian Nemeth scored a goal in each half as Sporting Kansas City beat the New England Revolution 4-2 on Wednesday in Major League Soccer.

New England scored the first and last goals of the game after Juan Agudelo beat two defenders and sent a shot past the oncoming goalkeeper in the 11th minute. Scott Caldwell angled home Charlie Davies' back-pass in the 64th.

The game swung when Sporting KC scored three first-half goals in 14 minutes.

Dominic Dwyer equalized it at 1-1 in the 29th minute by rolling in a left-footed shot after settling a cross with his chest.

Nemeth's glancing header of Benny Feilhaber's free kick gave Sporting KC a 2-1 lead in the 39th. Four minutes later, Feilhaber converted a penalty after New England was called for a questionable foul in the penalty area.

Nemeth made it 4-1 in the opening minute of the second half when Jacob Peterson won the ball deep in New England territory and fed a cross to an unmarked Nemeth.

Sporting KC had not played since May 9 because its match against Colorado was postponed last weekend. New England had its nine-game undefeated streak snapped.
