A battle of basement clubs left the Vancouver Whitecaps looking up at the league after Sporting Kansas City came form behind to claim a 2-1 win at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park on Saturday night.
Davide Chiumiento and Camilo combined early to give Vancouver a lead just 15 minutes into the match, with Camilo heading home Chiumiento's service.
But Sporting responded in the 32nd minute when former Mexican international Omar Bravo drew a penalty after a foul from former USA international Jay DeMerit. Bravo knocked home the spot-kick to level the scoring, and wouldn't waste much time in helping it gain a lead.
Just eight minutes later the Mexican headed a corner back across the face of goal to Julio César, who smashed home the match winner.
The second half was much less eventful with only a handful of chances going either way, and the home fans saw their team create a bit of distance between itself and the bottom of the table.
