Sporting KC beats Chivas USA 1-0 to move to 4-0

CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- C.J. Sapong scored in the 47th minute to

help Sporting Kansas City improve to 4-0 this season with a 1-0

win over Chivas USA on Sunday night.

After both teams struggled to create offense in the first half,

Sporting KC got things going only 2 minutes into the second

half. Midfielder Graham Zusi unleashed a shot that hit the cross

bar but was able to scoop up the rebound and send it across the

goalmouth to Sapong, who headed home his third goal of the

season.

Sporting KC nearly doubled the lead in the 74th when Kei Kamara

sent in a header that was stopped by a clutch palm save from

Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.

Chivas head coach Robin Fraser then had his team aggressively

push the ball, but poor finishing proved decisive and Sporting

KC was able to hold on.
