Sporting K.C. lead Western Conference after blanking Galaxy – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Colorado Springs, Colorado 2021-10-28 02:19:07 –

Johnny Russell scored goals in each half as Sporting Kansas City defeated LA Galaxy 2-0 on Wednesday night in Kansas City to take first place at the Western Conference in Major League Soccer.

Sporting KC, which is tied to the Seattle Sounders in points, is in first place thanks to its excellent goal difference. Kansas City (17-7-7, 58 points) also closed the home playoffs with the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Russell scored eight consecutive club record wins.

Russell’s second goal was 82 minutes, almost the same as the score in the first half. He took ownership just outside the box on the right. After slipping through the defender, he fired it past Galaxy keeper Jonathan Bond. The only difference was the foot I used because I used offfoot in the first half.

The sport will play against both Seattle and Colorado Rapids in 3rd place. Colorado Rapids maintained 55 points after losing 1-0 in New England on Wednesday night.

Sport will score at least two goals this season 17-0-0. 0-7-7 if you do not score one or all goals.

6th place Galaxy (13-12-7, 46 points) missed the chance to win the ground with a playoff push. They are one of five teams with less than three points in the last three playoff spot races in the west.

The sporty backlines of Andreu Fontas, Nicola Ishimato Mirin, Luis Martins and Graham Zusi built a wall in front of goal-scoring John Pulskamp. Pruskamp replaced Timmeria, who had been suspended for one match due to a severe foul, in a SKC match against Seattle on Saturday night. Pruskamp faced only 9 shots all night and scored only 2 shots.

Ilie Sanchez hit the left post from a close distance, so Sporting almost got on the board in two minutes. Although there were many scoring chances in the first half, sports could not gain momentum.

However, Russell grabbed the loose ball on the right side of the box in the 40th minute. He fluttered for a moment, avoiding the defender and firing over the bond with his right foot.

The first half was played in heavy rain.
