Final Score: Real Salt Lake 0, Kansas City 0
Kansas City, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt
played to a scoreless draw on Saturday at Sporting Park in a rematch of last
season's MLS Cup final.
Saturday's clash had a little less excitement than the Cup final last
December as both sides found scoring chances difficult to come by in the
opening 45 minutes.
The match opened up a bit in the second half as Sporting had the best chance
of the half in the 52nd minute when Graham Zusi ran onto a through pass in the
penalty area, but sliced his left-footed strike wide of the right post.
Real Salt Lake struggled to generate any offensive rhythm as the defending
Western Conference champs finished with just one shot on target, but had one
final opportunity with a corner kick in the final minute of play. But Chris
Schuler's header off the corner was easily grabbed by Sporting goalkeeper Eric
Kronberg and the sides settled for a share of the spoils.
The result sees Sporting Kansas City improve to seven points from its first
five matches, while RSL remains in second place in the West with nine points.
