Question of the Day
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) - New England Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth stopped Juan Luis Anangono’s penalty kick in the first minute of stoppage time Saturday to preserve a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire, who matched a Major League Soccer record with their sixth straight tie.
The Fire have tied each match since losing their opener. The six straight draws equaled an MLS mark last set by the Colorado Rapids in 2011.
Before Shuttleworth’s save, Chicago forward Mike Magee hit the post on a breakaway with 25 seconds left in regulation.
New England (2-3-2) tied it on a penalty kick in the 31st minute when Chicago defender Patrick Nyarko pulled down Revolution defender Kevin Alston in the penalty area. Lee Nguyen’s right-footed shot just eluded Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson’s dive to the left.
Quincy Amarikwa scored his fourth goal of the season for Chicago in the 16th minute.
SPORTING KC 4, IMPACT 0
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Dom Dwyer scored two goals in the second half, giving him four in his last four matches, and Kansas City moved into a share of the Eastern Conference lead with its victory over winless Montreal.
Dwyer scored in the 74th minute and the 86th for Sporting (3-1-2), which is unbeaten in its last five matches and tied with Columbus atop the East.
Aurelien Collin also scored for Kansas City with a left-footed shot just inside Troy Perkins’ left post in the 71st.
Montreal (0-4-3) fell behind 1-0 in the 31st minute when midfielder Calum Mallace headed a throw-in into his own net.
Eric Kronberg needed to make just two saves to record his third shutout of the year for Kansas City.
FC DALLAS 2, TORONTO FC 1
