After winning its opener, Sporting Kansas City has been on a tear in its first three games. Now 3-0 on the year, the boys in blue are coming off a 2-1 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps FC in which Dom Dwyer netted both goals for SKC.
Dwyer, one of the more exciting and talented players in MLS, continues to get better and better each year for Sporting.
Peter Vermes has stuck with the same lineup and it seems to be working well. Dwyer scored just 5 minutes into the match and with excellent defense and more importantly a red card handed out in first half stoppage time to give Kansas City a man-advantage, Sporting came away with the victory.
Next up was a showdown with Toronto FC at Children’s Mercy Park which resulted in a 1-0 victory with the lone goal coming from second-half sub Brad Davis.
The win vaulted Sporting to the top of the Supporters’ Shield standings and is now the only club with a 3-0-0 record in MLS.
Davis came over from the Houston Dynamo in January, and is playing in his 15th year in the league. His goal came in the 70th minute, and Sporting unbeaten streak against Toronto now spans to 7 matches.
Vermes again kept the same starting lineup, the first time he has done so for three consecutive games in two years.
Sporting has equaled its best start in club history. Sporting won’t play for a week while players from around the league will play with their respective national teams. Sporting’s Roger Espinoza (Honduras), Matt Besler (United States) and Soni Mustivar (Haiti) will play in 2018 World Cup qualifier matches before returning for an April 2nd match against rival Real Salt Lake.
