After back-to-back League draws, Crew SC will hit the road to take on Sporting Kansas City in a nationally televised clash on Sunday. Leading up to the inter-Conference contest on Sunday night, here are three things to know about Sporting KC.
Sporting KC’s leading scorer Dominic Dwyer has eight goals on the season, scoring twice in Sporting’s most recent match at Montreal, marking the second time in League play this year that he has scored two goals in a match and the seventh time in his MLS career. Dwyer is also one of the League leader’s in shots with 60 on the season, ranking fourth.
SKC has been on a good run, going unbeaten in its last three matches. The team's last loss was over a month ago on May 27 when it was defeated 1-0 at home by D.C. United.
