KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Kei Kamara scored two goals, including the game-winner in the 80th minute, to lead Sporting Kansas City to a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

Claudio Bieler also scored and had the assist on Kamara's second goal for Sporting (7-5-5), which snapped a four-match winless streak and moved into a second-place tie with Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference.

Jairo Arietta and Dominic Oduro scored for Columbus (5-7-5).

Sporting led 1-0 at the half on Kamara's 34th-minute goal, but a wild flurry in the first eight minutes of the second half saw Columbus tie the score at 2-all.
