Peterson, Feilhaber Lead Sporting KC to 1-0 Win Over Timber
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Jacob Peterson scored and Benny Feilhaber had an assist to help Sporting Kansas City beat the Portland Timbers 1-0 on Sunday.
Peterson flicked a header, off a free kick by Feilhaber, to the bottom-right corner in the 50th minute.
Alec Kann made a diving stop of a strike by Darlington Nagbe — Portland's only shot on goal — in the 10th.
The Timbers (7-8-8) had chances in stoppage time. Jack McInerney blasted a right footer from the left side of the box off the crossbar in the first minute, and Fanendo Adi's header, off a cross by Vytautas Andriuskevicius, from the right side of the 6-yard box missed wide right about three minutes later.
Kansas City's Jimmy Medranda earned and fifth yellow card and will be suspended for Sporting's next match, August 7th at Portland.
