KC Lose Late a Game They Did Not Deserve

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
For 45 minutes last night, Sporting KC looked like they'd be able to walk out of the Stub Hub Center with one or three points. For most of the second 45 it looked like they'd just be able to hang on to that one point, but in stoppage time, KC was crushed by a late goal by substitute Omar Gonzalez as Sporting KC fell 2-1 to the defending MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy.

For the first time since 2004, Sporting KC will be playing the LA Galaxy this weekend as a conference rival. With the additions of Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA back in 2005, KC has played the Galaxy in cross conference match ups. KC has played the Galaxy more than any other team in the league, 53 times in league play going 19-23-11 (across all competitions they've played 62 times, four fewer than the 66 KC has played against Colorado).

The MLS Team Of Week has four members of the Colorado Rapids, after they took apart FC Dallas 4-0 last Friday. Interestingly, the starting XI from whoscored.com, includes players from only four teams, the Rapids, Red Bulls, Houston Dynamo and LA Galaxy.

It is not often that Player of the Week honors goes to a goalkeeper in a winning cause, but that is the case with Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo who was brilliant in LA's 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders at the weekend.

1. A Little Joy For NYCFC

NYCFC's rollout was rough. It ranged from brutally mismanaged to the deliberately misleadingin the signing of Frank Lampard. The team still doesn't have a stadium plan, the New York Yankees are moaning about their use of Yankee Stadium, and what became painfully obvious over the last year was that MLS saw Manchester City's money, saw the New York City location, and rushed a franchise to debut before it was ready.

The Galaxy may be without Keane and Zardes, but they'll still bring a strong team to RFK tonight.

Optimists will look at the timing of this D.C. United game against the LA Galaxy and be thankful. LA, having flown across the country, is missing Robbie Keane, Gyasi Zardes, and Jaime Penedo. Keane and Zardes, in particular, would both individually be huge absences: Keane is either the best or second-best forward in MLS, while no one on the Galaxy roster has the mix of speed, size, and exuberance that Zardes brings to the table.
