Sporting KC suffers 3-1 loss to New York City FC
New York City (9-3-8) has won two consecutive games. Kansas City (6-9-7) has not won this season when allowing the first goal.
Anton Tinnerholm scored his first goal of the season in the 41st minute by knocking home Alexander Ring‘s cross to give NYCFC a 1-0 lead. Héber chipped it over goalkeeper Tim Melia on a breakaway in the 54th for his ninth goal.
Sporting KC got to 2-1 in the 73rd on an Ilie Sánchez header, but NYCFC answered four minutes later when Ring scored from distance.
Benny Feilhaber is frustrated that #SportingKC couldn’t come up with a win against NYCFC: “We need points. It doesn’t matter how well or how poorly we react in the game. We’ve got to get results. It’s a frustrating night all around.” #NYCvSKC pic.twitter.com/9sPurx3h2C
