Slumpbuster

A game against Chivas USA was just what the doctor order for Sporting KC. After four straight losses, SKC got back on the winning track, handing Chivas their worst loss of the season winning 4-0 with four goals from four different players.

The opening of the game saw a back and forth affair with both sides having stretches of possession, but neither side able to really test the opposing goalkeeper. The best chance in that stretch fell to KC in the 27th minute. Graham Zusi played a great corner right to the middle of the box. Dom Dwyer had gotten in front of Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and got his head on the ball, but put the header wide of Dan Kennedy's goal. With Dwyer's form this season you would at least expect him to test the goalkeeper on that attempt. In the 39th KC finally grabbed the lead and it came on the counter. After some poor attempts to clear the ball KC finally settled the ball and quickly worked it up field. The ball ended up wide to Zusi near the haf way line. Zusi played a great ball over the top towards Dwyer who was racing towards goal. Dwyer let the ball bounce in front of him and continue down the field, which through off Kennedy. Dwyer continued to follow the ball and beat Kennedy to it, touching it past him and it rolled into the net to give KC the 1-0 lead and give Dwyer KC's single season scoring record. Chivas attempted to respond in the 44th with Felix Borja firing from long range, but it was easily pushed aside for a corner by Andy Gruenebaum. In first half stoppage time, KC doubled their lead. After some good possession, the ball came to Zusi who played a nice through ball for Dwyer. His first touch though took him away from goal. Dwyer recovered though and played a ball wide to an open Toni Dovale. Dovale took a touch into the box and then tried to curl a shot into the far corner. His shot hit the post and bounced back into the middle of the box. Benny Feilhaber was following the play and was able to get his foot up and knock the ball into the net for his fourth goal of the season and send KC into the half time break up 2-0.

Early in the second half, KC made it 3-0. Igor Juliao brought the ball up KC's right before playing a cross field ball to Zusi who was wide open. Zusi controlled the ball and cut to the middle. He dribbled across the top of the box before firing a shot that beat Kennedy and went into the net to make it 3-0. KC almost made it four just minutes later. After Zusi was fouled near midfield, Feilhaber took a quick restart playing Dwyer through on goal, but Kennedy got down well and made the save. Chivas had a great opportunity in the 62nd to pull a goal back. Akira Kaji played a great cross to the back post for Eric Avila. Avila raced onto the ball but first his shot well over the bar to keep them off the board. Dwyer had another good opportunity later in the half to make it 4-0, again played behind Chivas' defense, but this time he pushed his shot just wide of Kennedy's far post. Late on, KC finally did get their fourth. After some high pressure on Chivas' defense by Mikey Lopez, Hurtado tried to play the ball back towards Kennedy. The pass was read by substitute, Claudio Bieler, who raced back and intercepted the pass. He cut around Kennedy and from a tight angle rolled a ball into the net to make it 4-0 in the 87th.

Wizards Man of the Match - Graham Zusi - A goal and an assist and probably should have had at least one more assist. Took his shot well for his goal, a good game from the designated player.

Player Ratings - Gruenebaum 6, Sinovic 6, Besler 6, Collin 6, Juliao 6, Olum 5, Nagamura 6, Feilhaber 6, Zusi 8, Dwyer 7, Dovale 6. Subs Lopez 7, Saad 6, Bieler 6.

Match Day 29 - Need to Break the Streak

Tomorrow's game against Chivas USA isn't a "must win" for Sporting KC, in the sense that a loss here doesn't eliminate Sporting KC from the playoffs, or resign them to playing in the play in game even. But from the aspect of confidence and mentality heading into the final run of the season, and to calm down Sporting fans that are starting to get frustrated, this may as well be one. After losing four straight games, Kansas City needs to find some form.

Chivas may be the perfect team for Sporting to play right now. They have scored just two goals in their last eight games, and those two goals came in a 4-2 loss to Seattle and are winless in their last nine games. And they'll have to play Sporting KC tomorrow without their leading scorer, Erick Torres, who will begin a two game suspension for a red card he picked up against the LA Galaxy after he missed the last two games while on national team duty with Mexico. Torres has scored 14 of Chivas' 23 goals this year, and only two other players on their roster have scored more than a single goal this season. Meanwhile on the defensive side of the ball, Chivas have given up the third most goals in the league, behind Houston and Montreal. So on paper this looks like the perfect game for KC to break their slump.

Kansas City's troubles at the moment are numerous though. The team hasn't gotten a shutout since their 1-0 win over Portland in July. They've conceded 20 goals in that 12 game stretch, Sporting's center back pairing of Aurelien Collin and Matt Besler look tired and a bit worn out without Ike Opara to provide the occasional break. Igor Juliao looks like a 20 year old who is starting to hit a bit of a wall. Lawrence Olum's passing has left a lot to be desired in a position that has required a lot of passing for KC. Offensively, Dom Dwyer has continued to find net for KC, which is a bit of good news for them as he's tied the club record for goals in a season. Tomorrow against Chivas it's a question of how much rest Peter Vermes is considering for some tired legs with two Champions League games at home coming up next week. KC though needs to get back on track in MLS play, and at this point that has to take precedent over the CCL.

Gruenebaum
Juliao - Collin - Besler - Sinovic
Claros - Nagamura
Feilhaber
Saad - Dwyer - Zusi

Number to Remember - 11 - That's the number of goals that both teams have given up over their last four league games, all losses for both teams. KC has lost 3-0, 3-1, 3-1, and 2-1, while Chivas has lost 1-0, 3-0, 4-2, 3-0.

Key Match Up - KC defense vs Chivas attack - Chivas' attack has not looked good lately, but KC has been finding new ways to give up goals each game it seems, from counters, to set pieces, to PKs, to the spectacular, it seems it's a different one each game. While Chivas' attack has been less than stellar, KC's defense really needs to step it up.

PREDICTION - These are two teams that are not very good. Combined they've picked up five points since the beginning of August (14 games between the two teams). As the team that is second in the East and currently in a playoff spot, Sporting needs to be the ones that really take this game to Chivas. A loss here would be another demoralizing step for this team heading into CCL play. Really though, even with the defensive issues lately, I think KC has the fire power up front to take care of Chivas.

SKC - 2 (Dwyer x2)
CHV - 1 (Avila)

Kamara Scores for His Country - Former SKC Wizards Update

Most of the foreign leagues were off this past week with national teams playing friendlies, Euro Qualifiers and African Cup of Nations qualifiers. Former KC forward, Kei Kamara was one of those with his national team. While he looks for a new club, including rumors of a return to MLS and Columbus being interested, he captained Sierra Leone in their first qualifier of the group stage of qualifying in the Ivory Coast. Kamara scored the opener in the game before half time. Unfortunately two goals in a three minute span by the Ivory Coast saw Sierra Leone drop the game 1-0.
