KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) - Raul Rodriguez’s header went off the cross bar and goalkeeper Alec Kann’s back in the fourth minute of stoppage time to give the Houston Dynamo a 3-3 draw with Sporting Kansas City in Major League Soccer on Friday.

Boniek Garcia put a long free kick into the box as the closing seconds ticked off and the ball glanced off the back of Rodriguez’s head for the bizarre goal to end Sporting’s home winning streak at six.

Earlier, it appeared that it would be an easy win for Sporting KC with Jacob Peterson and Roger Espinoza scoring in the first 26 minutes. But Mauro Mantas scored the first goal conceded by Sporting KC at home in 376 minutes with a goal on the half-hour, before Alex equalized in the 59th minute.

Sporting KC took a 3-2 lead in the 81st minute when Dominic Dwyer pounced on a loose ball off a corner kick for his 13th goal of the season, but Rodriguez’s late strike salvaged a point for the Dynamos.

Sporting KC improve to 38 points and remain in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, while Houston stay in last place, five points behind the Vancouver Whitecaps.
