Another month of the season is in the books for Sporting KC. In the month of May, KC went 0-2-1 in league play, and added a win against New England in the US Open Cup qualifier. KC scored 2 league goals in the 3 games, with Ryan Smith and an Omar Gonzalez own goal accounting for those goals. CJ Sapong and Chance Myers added a brace in the Open Cup game, with Aurelien Collin adding a goal as well.
For me there's really not a contest this month for who wins the award. For me the award goes to Craig Rocastle. Rocastle played in 3 of the 4 games this month, and in those three games, KC's performance has improved. The one game that Rocastle didn't play in was the 4-1 loss to LA. Rocastle's performance has calmed the midfield, he's helped to give KC some semblance of a midfield the past few games as well. It looks like KC will at least have Rocastle around for one more game before leaving to join Grenada for the Gold Cup.
