FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Graham Zusi scored two goals, including one off a stunning 50-yard free kick in the 55th minute, to help lift Sporting Kansas City to a 4-1 victory over FC Dallas Sunday night.

For FC Dallas, the defeat was the first since April 17, snapping a nine-game unbeaten streak (6-0-3). After surrendering just two goals and posting six shutouts in their previous seven contests, Dallas and goalkeeper Kevin Hartman allowed a season-high four.
Sporting played a man down from the 57th minute after Milos Stojcev was ejected after accumulating his second yellow card of the day.
