Lawrence Olum lifts Sporting KC past Union, 2-1

Lawrence Olum scored in stoppage time to give Sporting Kansas

City a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

Graham Zusi also scored for Kansas City (17-10-7), which will

claim the Supporters Shield for the best record in the MLS if New

York loses or draws Sunday against Chicago. Philadelphia was

eliminated from playoff contentions with the loss and finished the

season 12-12-10.

Zusi opened the scoring in the 47th minute. Jack McInerney

scored his team-best 12th goal to tie it for Philadelphia in the

88th minute.

Philadelphia lost its final two games and missed the playoffs

for the third time in four seasons. The Union played without

midfielder and captain Brian Carroll because of yellow card

accumulation.
