Sporting Kansas City 2-3 FC Dallas: Hoops come from behind to claim win

Ed Zurga

Dallas came from two goals down to claim a very late win over Sporting Kansas City. The host side was down to 10 men after Teal Bunbury saw red.

FC Dallas had to claw back from two goals down to earn a 3-2 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.

A mistake from the Dallas defense in the first half gifted Kei Kamara the opener in the 22nd minute, and Omar Bravo doubled the lead in the 68th minute when he cleaned up a Teal Bunbury shot.

But Dallas came storming back quickly. Daniel Hernandez sent a free kick at Sporting's goal just two minutes later which took a slight deflection off of Ugo Ihemelu before finding the net.

Sporting took another blow in the 76th when Bunbury was sent off for picking up his second yellow, leaving the home side to defend its lead with just 10 men.

Brek Shea and Maicon Santos hooked up for the equalizer in the 89th, with Shea sending in a cross and Santos finishing with his head. It would not be the last goal of the night. Shea got loose again in stoppage time and once again found a his mark, this time Bobby Warshaw, who put away another header to give Dallas a win with mere moments left on the clock.
