MLS kicks back into action this weekend after their break for the Copa America Centenario and Sporting KC will kick off on Sunday in the heat against co-leaders of the Western Conference, FC Dallas. I wouldn't expect a game that has a lot of pretty soccer to it unfortunately because of the situations both teams find themselves in.

Not There Yet, But That's a Start

It wasn't the prettiest game of soccer that you're ever going to see played, but Sporting Kansas City may have taken a step forward in turning around what has quickly become a disaster of a season for the club. Having won just one of their last 10 games, going to LA to take on a team that had lost just once in their last 10 games most fans were expecting little to nothing from Kansas City out of last night's game against the Galaxy.

What's Gone Wrong, and is There a Way to Fix it?

Sporting Kansas City is mired in their worst run of form since the start of the 2011 season when they won just one of their first 11 games. That run though saw Kansas City play 10 of those 11 games on the road before the opening of Children's Mercy Park. This run of form is worse because KC has had five of their last 10 games at home, and has picked up just four points in those five home games.

We assign numbers to those who wore Black-and-Red Friday night.

D.C. United came into Friday night's game with Sporting Kansas City with nary a road win in a stat that was particularly entertaining to some jerk on the masthead. So naturally when a 1-0 win happened for the good guys following a hectic 24 hours of travel and redirection, combined with a weather delay, it was a earned win in the karma department to some degree.

D.C. United's 2016 season has been a roller coaster, with wins and losses generally following one another with regularity. They have one last chance to put together a winning streak before MLS takes a break for the Copa America Centenario, and that requires taking all three points against a Sporting Kansas City team that is also looking to bounce back from a dissatisfying loss last weekend.

For the first time in five weeks Sporting KC finally got a win on Sunday with a 2-1 win over Orlando City. Now with that monkey off of Sporting KC's back, the club needs to move forward and start to string some results together. This is especially important because while still early, Kansas City is below the red line in terms of playoff positioning and have played the most games in MLS so far this season (along with Dallas and Vancouver).

Super-sub Jacob Peterson snapped Sporting KC's winless streak Sunday afternoon, coming on as a halftime substitute and recording a goal and an assist in Sporting KC's 2-1 win over Orlando City. A barrage, and even a club record, of shots for Sporting was barely enough for Sporting to get the win.

A pair of teams with a combined 11 games winless meeting in a game, while a draw was a possibility, something had to give. Unfortunately for Kansas City that didn't give in their favor as they fell on the road to the Houston Dynamo 2-0 to end the Dynamo's six game winless streak, and extended Kansas City's to six, their longest since 2011.
