KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Krisztian Nemeth scored his seventh goal of the season and Sporting Kansas City beat the Colorado Rapids 2-0 on Saturday night.

Chance Myers and Benny Feilhaber assisted on Nemeth’s goal in the 32nd minute. It was Feilhaber’s MLS-leading ninth assist.

Myers returned to MLS action for the first time since rupturing his Achilles tendon on May 23, 2014. The defender’s first competitive action came in a 1-0 Open Cup win over St. Louis FC on June 16.

Rapids midfielder Sam Cronin conceded an own goal in the 64th minute on a misplay of Feilhaber’s cross.

Luis Solignac nearly pulled Colorado even 10 minutes earlier, but his shot missed inches wide of the left post.

Kansas City improved to 7-3-6, and Colorado dropped to 2-6-9. The Rapids, who have not won in Kansas City since 2002, stretched their MLS winless streak to six.
