MLS: FC Dallas beats Sporting KC, Orlando City ties Revolution
FC DALLAS 2, SPORTING KANSAS CITY 1
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Mauro Rosales broke a tie in the 68th minute and MLS-leading FC Dallas beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1 on Sunday night.
Rosales entered as a substitute in the 63rd minute and made his first touch of the game five minutes later on a free kick that hooked over the wall into the left corner. It was first goal since joining FC Dallas (5-1-2) during the offseason.
Sporting KC (4-3-0) remained fourth in the overall standings, tied with the Eastern Conference-leading Montreal Impact.
FC Dallas tied it in the 35th minute when Michael Barrios pounced on Kellyn Acosta's long ball and powered home a right-footed shot despite a deflection off goalkeeper Tim Melia's hands. It was Barrios' fourth goal in five games.
Sporting's Lawrence Olum opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with a point-blank header to finish Benny Feilhaber's corner.
REVOLUTION 2, ORLANDO CITY 2, TIE
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Lee Nguyen scored on a penalty kick in the 96th minute to give New England the tie with Orlando City.
Kevin Molino had put Orlando City (2-1-3) in front in the 92nd minute with a low close-range blast.
Orlando players argued the hand-ball penalty that led to Nguyen's penalty kick, suggesting the ball hit Servando Carrasco on the shoulder. Referee Baldomero Toledo also initially called the penalty outside the area and then changed the call after some discussion with his crew.
The Revolution (1-1-5) disputed Molino's goal, arguing he committed a hand ball.
Kaka opened the scoring in the second minute with the fastest penalty kick in MLS history at 1:37. He converted after Orlando's Julio Baptista drew a foul 15 seconds into the match.
Teal Bunbury tied it in the 37th minute for the Revs.
