New England Revolution 0-1 Sporting Kansas City: Bunbury seals win with solo effort

The big forward pounced on a poor pass early in the match and earned a win against a side reeling from the sale of its captain.

Stephen McCarthy, Matt Reis: New england Revolution
Winslow Townson
Teal Bunbury pounced a lazy back pass from the New England's back line and gave Sporting Kansas City a 1-0 win over the Revs on Saturday night.

Bunbury's goal came just 20 minutes into the match and the Revs failed to recover.

Dimitry Imbongo had maybe the best chance to pull New England level just after the break. Chris Tierney's whipped cross found the forward open in front of goal.

Fernando Cardenas had a nice chance of his own just minutes later, storming forward and blasting his shot wide of the target. Late on Tierney had a shot at goal take a deflection, but Jimmy Nielsen reacted well preserved the win for Sporting.

Earlier in the week New England dealt captain Shalrie Joseph to Chivas USA.
