Saturday, August 6, 2011
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Mauro Rosales and Lamar Neagle scored less than two minutes apart at the close of the second half, giving Seattle Sounders a 2-1 win Saturday night and snapping Sporting Kansas City's 14-match unbeaten streak.
Kansas City (7-7-9) lost its first game since May 21 -- ending a 6-0-8 stretch.
Rosales tied the game at 1 in the 90th minute for Seattle (11-5-8), and Neagle's game-winner in the second minute of stoppage time came on a loose-ball scramble in the area.
Sporting forward Omar Bravo was issued a straight red card -- his second of the year and Kansas City's club-record seventh of the year -- for a hard challenge on Pat Noonan in the 58th minute.
Kei Kamara's leaping header put Kansas City up 1-0 in the 20th minute.
