Reid scores first MLS goal as Sporting KC blanks Chicago 1-0
Sporting Kansas City (8-5-2) has won two straight matches. The Fire (4-8-4) have lost two in a row.
The Fire’s Robert Beric, who had scored a goal in five straight matches, missed wide on a right-footed shot from close range in the 88th minute.
Goalkeeper Tim Melia dove to his left to deflect a penalty kick by Beric in the 2nd minute. Beric shot again off the deflection, but Russell cleared the ball away. Fabian Herbers also missed a possible goal on a header for the Fire in the first half.
Shuttleworth and Melia each made two saves.
Winston Reid deflects credit after #SportingKC's second straight win: "It doesn't really matter if I score at all. Obviously it's nice, but we needed to get a win, which is important — get back-to-back wins. Most importantly, I'm happy about a clean sheet." pic.twitter.com/SsuUBHuHoi
