DID YOU KNOW?
  • Sporting KC won its three opening matches. The good news: Of the 14 other clubs to post 3-0-0 starts, only one failed to make the playoffs. The bad news: That team was Kansas City, in 2006.
  • SKC beat Chivas USA the last two times it traveled to the Home Depot Center.
  • With Juan Pablo Angel out for the beginning of 2012 with a concussion, rookie Casey Townsend scored the Goats' first goal. It stood up as the only strike in a surprise 1-0 win away against Real Salt Lake.
  • The Goats now bizarrely have a perfect away record and a pointless home record in 2012.
  • With two assists in the 2-1 win over FC Dallas, Graham Zusi now leads MLS with four total. He has at least one in each game this season.
