KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Matt Besler scored in stoppage time to help Sporting Kansas City beat the Columbus Crew 3-2 on Sunday night and extend its unbeaten streak to four games.

Besler headed home the winner, off Ike Opara’s feed, in the 91st minute. It was Besler’s first goal since 2011.

Ola Kamara gave Columbus (3-6-7) the lead in the 22nd minute.

Tyson Wahl received a red card in the 48th, leaving the Crew a man down the rest of the way, and Benny Feilhaber’s penalty kick tied it about a minute later.

Graham Zusi’s first goal of the season put Sporting (7-8-4) up 2-1 in the 56th minute, but Kamara raced behind the defense to side-net a long feed from Tony Tchani and tie in the 75th. Kamara has seven goals in the last five matches.

Columbus, which was limited to just six shots, has just one win in its last nine games and is winless in its last four.
