Sporting Kansas City 2, Impact 0

Claudio Bieler scored his third goal of the season, and Sporting
Kansas City defeated previously unbeaten Montreal 2-0 on Saturday
night in a match that saw the ejection of Impact coach Marco
Schaellibaum.

Schaellibaum was sent off in the 81st minute, shortly after
Graham Zusi’s goal put Sporting up 2-0, for squirting water out of
a water bottle at Sporting’s bench and fourth official Matthew
Foerster. He will miss the Impact’s home game against Columbus on
April 13. Montreal lost for the first time after a 4-0 start.

Sporting (2-1-2) broke a three-match winless streak and a
197-minute goal drought, and Jimmy Nielsen recorded his third
straight shutout. Benny Feilhaber recorded his first two assists of
the season.

In the fifth minute, Feilhaber sent a through ball to Bieler,
who made one touch to get free and put his shot into the lower
right corner. Zusi made it 2-0 in the 80th, taking Feilhaber’s pass
and shaking off defender Karl Ouimette before chipping the ball
home.

Montreal did not get a shot on goal until the 60th minute, when
Nielsen had to dive to his left to knock away Marco Di Vaio’s
left-footed volley.
