Sporting Kansas City 3-0 Houston Dynamo: Teal Bunbury grabs a brace for Sporting

Teal Bunbury grabbed a brace as Sporting Kansas City ran up a 3-0 win over a Houston team that finished with 10 men.

Sporting Kansas City moved, temporary, joint top of the Eastern Conference with a 3-0 win over the Houston Dynamo on Saturday afternoon.

Two goals from Teal Bunbury and one from C.J. Sapong were more than enough to finish off a Houston team that ended the match with 10 men after Carlo Costly's 64th minutes ejection.

Bunbury opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a lovely finish when he latched onto the end of a Graham Zusi ball. His second came after Costly's ejection. Julio Cesar found him with a wonderful ball that split the Houston backline in the 73rd minute, setting the big striker through on goal.

Sapong finished off the night's scoring when he received a pass from Bunbury's replacement, Kei Kamara, and touched it home.

Sporting is level with Columbus pending the outcome of the Crew's match against Toronto on Saturday night.
