SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs HOUSTON DYNAMO LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. July 7, 2012 (WEEK 18, MLS Game #163) 7 p.m. CT (KSMO; FS-Hou/MultiMedios) A heated battle for Eastern Conference placing is in store on Saturday evening at Livestrong Sporting Park as Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo meet. Sporting put an end to their short losing run at midweek, coming back for a 3-1 win at the Montréal Impact. The Dynamo are still unbeaten at home this year, reaching a scoreless draw with the Chicago Fire, also at midweek. REFEREE: Chris Penso.

It was the second time the teams had met with a trip to the MLS Cup Final on the line (also 2007, also won 2-0 by Houston).  After winning the first meeting ever between the clubs, April 8, 2006 at Robertson Stadium, Kansas City has not won in Houston. The Dynamo have won three of the six MLS league and cup meetings since at home (with three draws).  In league play, Sporting have a three-game unbeaten streak alive vs. Houston, winning their last two meetings in Kansas City.  Coaches record: Peter Vermes vs. HOU: P5 W2 L1 D2 … Dominic Kinnear vs. KC: P18 W7 L5 D6 SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City put an end to their two-game losing run, storming back for a 3-1 win against the Montréal Impact on Wednesday evening at Stade Saputo. Sporting are in second place in the Eastern Conference with 32 points from 17 matches. LAST MATCH  The Impact took the lead four minutes into the second half. Felipe ran onto a Zarek Valentin through ball on the right side of the area and he cut back a low cross which evaded everyone in the box. It fell perfectly for Patrice Bernier, who came charging through the center and unleashed a first-time to the back of the net.  But Sporting were level six minutes later when Bernier was whistled for a hand ball in the penalty area. Kei Kamara stepped up to convert the penalty.  Yet another scramble in the Impact’s penalty area in the 75th minute saw Montreal captain Davy Arnaud foul KC substitute Soony Saad. Referee Sorin Stoica pointed to the spot once again, and this time it was Graham Zusi's turn to convert and put the visitors ahead 2-1.  Sporting added a third eight minutes from full time. Roger Espinoza’s cross from the left found Jacob Peterson on the opposite side and his hard drive deflected off a defender and flew past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts for the capper.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made two changes to the team that dropped a 1-0 decision to the Chicago Fire at Livestrong Sporting Park. Matt Besler came into the back four for Lawrence Olum, and Paulo Nagamura started in midfield in place of Julio Cesar.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Roger Espinoza, Paulo Nagamura (Peterson Joseph 86) - Kei Kamara (Soony Saad 69), Graham Zusi, C.J. Sapong - Teal Bunbury (Jacob Peterson 46). TEAM NEWS  Sporting put an end to a three-game winless run, winning their first league game since June 16.  The penalty kicks were the first of the season converted by Sporting KC. Kei Kamara saw a penalty saved by FC Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman on March 25.  “It’s not the ordinary thing to get two penalties on the road, but that happens. I think we deserved both of them,” said Sporting manager Peter Vermes. “I saw the action and it was a handball. Unfortunately it is, but it happens to all of us in the game. And on the other play, the player wasn’t playing the ball. He tackled the man and you can’t do that.”  Kamara was taken off between the two penalties, so Graham Zusi stepped up to take the second.  “He could have taken the first one if he’d wanted to,” Vermes said. “I like the way he stepped up and took it, and he finished it really well.”  The first penalty kick was KC’s first goal in 319 minutes, their longest goalless drought of the season, the first since Jacob Peterson’s eighth-minute goal June 20 vs. Seattle.  “It was one of those ugly games,” said Kamara. “But it’s finally about time when we can have an ugly game and then get points from it. So we’ll take the points back home and get back to what we’ve been doing.”  Jacob Peterson scored his second goal in his last three appearances. “Jacob is continually getting better with understanding how our formation plays, and his role and responsibility,” Vermes said. “I’m really happy for him. His work ethic when he came in was tremendous, and that’s one thing that really helped us get back in the game. The scoring was just the icing on the cake.”  Peterson came on as a halftime substitute in place of striker Teal Bunbury as Sporting made a tactical shift.  “We changed our style defensively. We were more compact, did better pressure, so they didn’t get a lot of occasions,” said defender Aurelien Collin. “We were better at blocking the passes between the lines. And then when everybody started to get tired, we waited for them to play, played on our strength and won a lot of air balls and second balls.”  Paulo Nagamura returned to the starting lineup in place of Júlio César after being unavailable for the previous four games. He was stretched off the field after 86 minutes, but it was not a recurrence of his groin strain. “He was cramping,” Vermes said. “So it was time to take him out.” HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo continued their undefeated run in their new ground, reaching a scoreless draw with the Chicago Fire at BBVA Compass Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Dynamo are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 24 points from 17 games. LAST MATCH  The teams combined for just three shots on target for the evening. Chicago’s Marco Pappa tested Tally Hall in the 12th minute with a left-footed strike from outside that box -- the only chance the Dynamo 'keeper had to deal with.  Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson made two saves on the evening, both in the final 45 minutes, greatly threatened by neither.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made one change to the team that got a late winner for a 2-1 win against Philadelphia Union at BBVA Compass Stadium. Adam Moffat came into the midfield in place of Geoff Cameron.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe - Luiz Camargo (Brian Ownby 69), Adam Moffat, Brad Davis - Boniek Garcia, Will Bruin (Brian Ching 65), Macoumba Kandji (Colin Clark 81). TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo kept a clean sheet for the first time in nearly two months, since a scoreless draw with the Portland Timbers on May 15.  “That’s the positive you take out of it, negating their chances,” Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear said. “The back four’s been solid. We’re not giving up chances in the run of play, which is nice to see.”  Said center back Bobby Boswell: “We gave up seven goals in two games during a stretch and that’s not us. Tonight was a good night for us in terms of keeping the ball out of the back of the net and limiting their chances. We just have to get ready for Kansas City, another team who can put a lot of goals up on you if you aren’t accountable.”  The Dynamo faced just one attempt at goal from Chicago, a season-low for the Orange this season.

“We’ve always prided ourselves in being tough defenders and honest workers … and taking responsibility for our actions in the defensive end,” Davis said. “[Kinnear] puts, not necessarily pressure, but expects a lot of us and we expect to give that to him. I think it’s being accountable for the work and organization and staying in a good defensive block. Not giving a team anything easy … That’s what championship teams do.” While Houston were held without a goal for a second time in their new home, they did remain unbeaten in league play (4-0-3) at BBVA Compass Stadium. “I thought we had some good looks in the first half. I think as the game wore on, they went the way we thought they would,” said Kinnear. “They sat in deep and tried to break on us. They defend well. They take out passing lanes, so it’s important to try and get that first goal to try and open the game and unfortunately that didn’t happen tonight.” The Dynamo are unbeaten in league play in Houston since last June 18, and 10 of their games over the second half of the season will be at BBVA Compass Stadium. “One of the big things for us is to continue being undefeated at home,” said midfielder Brad Davis. “We haven’t had as many games yet, but whenever you defend your home, that’s a good thing.” Geoff Cameron missed out on the contest after suffering a hamstring strain in the days leading up to the match.

Sporting Kansas City News, Notes and headlines Results | Sporting Kansas City currently sit in second place of the Eastern Conference with a record of 10-5-2 (32 points) one-point behind D.C. United. The team had a historic start to 2012, garnering seven straight wins to begin the season. However, Kansas City experienced a slight decrease in their momentum losing three games in a row before earning a draw against Western Conference foe Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The momentum was back in Kansas City’s favor as the team won two Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup games against Orlando City SC and Colorado Rapids and added two MLS victories against the San Jose Earthquakes and Toronto FC. Sporting KC then went on the road and earned a tie at CenturyLink Field against Western Conference foe Seattle Sounders. The club has ten wins this season after just 17 matches. It took them 26 games in 2011 until they got their tenth win on August 28, 2011. Sporting KC experienced a second short slump in MLS play, suffering a 4-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park followed by a 1-0 loss to rival Chicago Fire at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. However, in between the two MLS matches, Sporting Kansas City hosted the Dayton Dutch Lions in Open Cup competition, in which they earned a 3-0 victory to send them to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup semi-finals. Sporting Kansas City got back on track in MLS competition on Wednesday when they beat Montreal 3-1 at Saputo Stadium. When they last met| Sporting Kansas City last played the Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Championship in their quest for the 2011 MLS cup. The match resulted in a 2-0 defeat for Kansas City ending a 2011 season that saw the club ascend from worst to first in the Eastern Conference. Houston began the scoring in the 53rd minute on an unassisted finish from Andre Hainault. The goal transpired from an Adam Moffat free kick on the right side. The ball was served in for Jermaine Taylor who directed his header on goal. Nielsen was there to make the play, but gave up a rebound that landed in the path of Hainault. As Sporting Kansas City pushed numbers forward in efforts to secure the equalizer, Houston patiently waited before capitalizing on the stretched out backline in the 87th minute when Luiz Camargo slipped a through ball in for Carlo Costly. The Honduran international striker took two touches before slamming a left-footed shot off the post and into the net. The defeat took place at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in front of a sell-out crowd of 20,839 fans on November 6. Six for All-Star | Sporting KC had six players up for the AT&T MLS All-Star Game of 2012. Nominated players were goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen, defend-

The All-Star First XI will be announced on July 8 during the ESPN broadcast of Chicago Fire versus LA Galaxy at 2pm CT. While the gameday roster will be announced during the ESPN broadcast of the New York Red Bulls versus Seattle Sounders on July 15 at 3pm CT. Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup | Sporting Kansas City advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup after garnering victories against Orlando City SC, Colorado Rapids and the Dayton Dutch Lions. Sporting KC hosted Orlando City SC at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park on May 29th earning the 3-2 victory on a goal from Paulo Nagamura followed by two more from Michigan native Soony Saad. A week later Kansas City was home again in the fortress that is LIVESTRONG Sporting Park as they defeated a familiar MLS foe, the Colorado Rapids 2-0. Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin was able to get on the end of a Graham Zusi free kick. Collin’s header was initially blocked by Rapids goalkeeper Matt Pickens, but his slight touch only guided the ball into the post before bouncing off the back of his head and into the back of the net to give Sporting KC the 1-0 lead. Teal Bunbury added an insurance goal in the 79th minute to boost Sporting KC’s lead to two, where it would stand at the final whistle. The quarterfinals were held on June 26th against the Dayton Dutch Lions at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. Sporting Kansas City earned the early lead when C.J. Sapong was able to redirect a shot by Seth Sinovic. The scoring continued when Graham Zusi hammered a shot from 20 yards out to beat Dayton goalkeeper Matt Williams. It was Sapong again on the third tally as he headed home a Soony Saad corner kick. With the win, Sporting Kansas City advance to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup semifinals and will face the Philadelphia Union on July 11th at PPL Park.

Dynamo newcomer Boniek García makes impressive debut: Honduran midfielder Boniek García made his debut in the  Dynamo starting lineup on June 30 against Philadelphia and made immediate contributions. García began the sequence and  earned an assist on Brad Davis’ opening goal and was a part of the buildup before Brian Ching earned a penalty kick in the  second half. García played 90 minutes in his MLS debut. The 27‐year‐old Designated Player played for Honduran  powerhouse C.D. Olimpia since 2007 after his first tenure with the club from 2003‐06. With García, Olimpia captured the  2011‐12 Honduran League Apertura and Clausura championships. The midfielder debuted for the Honduras national team  in 2005 and has 69 appearances for his country, including five appearances in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The  Dynamo will face Olimpia in CONCACAF Champions League group play on Aug. 30 in Honduras and Oct. 23 in Houston.  

Ching ties Preki on MLS all‐time goal list: Dynamo forward Brian Ching scored his 79th career MLS regular season goal  with his game‐winning penalty on June 30 vs. Philadelphia. Ching tied Preki, the Serbian‐born U.S. international who  tallied 79 goals for Kansas City and Miami from 1996‐2005. With Ching’s next goal, he will tie Josh Wolff (still active with  D.C. United) and Brian McBride for 12th on the all‐time scoring list.   

Ching passes Ralston on game‐winning goals list: Ching’s goal on June 30 also marked his 20th career MLS regular season  game‐winning goal. The game‐winner moved Ching past Dynamo assistant coach Steve Ralston, New York forward  Kenny Cooper and Roy Lassiter for 12th on the all‐time chart.  

Davis passes De Ro for second on Dynamo scoring list: Brad Davis’ goal in the first half on June 30 was his 25th regular  season goal with the Dynamo. He moved past Dwayne De Rosario into second on the franchise list.  

Bruin bags ninth goal: Dynamo forward Will Bruin scored his ninth goal of the season with a first‐half equalizer on June 23  at Montreal. The second‐year forward is tied for third in the MLS Golden Boot race with Thierry Henry, Chris Pontius and  Danny Koevermans. The four players trail Chris Wondolowski (14 goals) and Kenny Cooper (11). 

Bruin in historic Dynamo territory: Bruin’s 9 goals are the most for a Dynamo player since Brian Ching set a franchise  record with 13 goals in 2008. Bruin reached 9 goals in the fastest number of games (15) in team history. Ching reached 9  goals in Houston’s 16th game in 2006, but Ching missed six of those games due to U.S. men’s national team duties for the  2006 World Cup. Ching scored his ninth goal of 2006 in his tenth game of the season. Bruin’s 9 goals in 2012 have come in a  12‐game stretch (April 15 at Chicago to present). The next two best goal‐scoring stretches in Dynamo history are Ching in  2008, when he scored 9 goals in his first 18 games played (the 9 goals came in a 12‐game stretch) and Dwayne De Rosario,  who scored 9 goals in a 21‐game span in 2006.      


Three in a row for Bruin: Will Bruin scored in three consecutive games (6/16, 6/20, 6/23) for the second time this season  (4/15, 4/21, 4/28), with four goals in each three‐game scoring streak. He is the first Dynamo player with a pair of three‐ game scoring streaks in the same season, and just the second player to record two streaks overall (Ching). His current  streak marks the sixth time a Dynamo player has scored in three consecutive games (Bruin 2012 (twice); Ching 2006, 2008;  Joseph Ngwenya 2007; Stuart Holden 2009). No Dynamo player has ever scored in four consecutive games.  

More Bruin: Bruin has 14 regular season goals in his two‐year career. With his next goal, he will tie Stuart Holden for  fourth on the franchise list. Bruin has already surpassed his 2011 total for shots on goal, with 24 this year after posting 23  shots on goal in 2011.  

Possession: The Dynamo have won the possession battle in 14 of 17 games on the season. Houston had 61% possession vs.  Chicago on Tuesday, 55% vs. Philadelphia, lost the possession battle, 53‐47%, at Montreal, had 63% possession vs. Toronto,  54% against FC Dallas, 54% at Vancouver, 60% vs. LA, 62% at New England, 60% vs. Portland, 56% vs. D.C., 53% at New  York, 54% at D.C., a 49‐51% disadvantage at Columbus, 55% at Chicago, 56% at Seattle, a disadvantage (48‐52%) at San Jose,  and 53% at Chivas USA.  

Dynamo productive in final 15 minute: Ching’s goal in the 83rd minute on June 30 was Houston’s seventh goal in the final  15 minutes of games this year. The Dynamo are in fourth in the league in goals scored in the final 15 minutes (San Jose leads  with 13). Last year, Houston scored 14 goals in the final 15 minutes of games, the second most in MLS (Seattle). 

Dynamo are defensive in final 15 minutes: While the Dynamo have scored seven goals in the final 15 minutes of games  this year, they have allowed just one goal in the final quarter hour (June 10, at Vancouver). Houston and Chicago (1 goal  each) are tied for the fewest goals allowed in the final 15 minutes of games.    

Ching ties Mullan for second on assists chart: With his assist on June 23 at Montreal, Brian Ching reached 19 regular  season assists with the Dynamo to move into a tie for second with Brian Mullan on the franchise list.

Second Half Savants: Houston’s 0‐0 draw with the Fire on Tuesday improved its record to 6‐1‐5 when tied or leading at the  break. The Dynamo are 3‐1‐5 in games in which they were tied at halftime and 3‐0 when leading at halftime. Houston is 0‐4‐ 1 when trailing at the interval after its comeback draw with Toronto on June 20.   

Cameron, Hainault, Taylor, Watson return from national duty: Three members of Houston’s heralded backline and regular  starting midfielder Je‐Vaughn Watson returned from national duty for the June 16 match against FC Dallas after missing  the June 10 game at Vancouver. Geoff Cameron played the second half off USA’s 1‐1 draw at Guatemala on June 12. The  center back also played 90 minutes in a friendly vs. Scotland on May 26. Andre Hainault was called in by Canada and  played 90 minutes in a friendly vs. the U.S.  and 90 minutes in both of Canada’s Olympic qualifiers against Cuba and  Honduras to reach 28 caps. Watson started three matches for Jamaica, including a 2‐1 win over Guatemala and a 0‐0 draw  vs. Antigua & Barbuda in a pair of qualifying matches. Taylor did not appear in any of the three games for Jamaica.

First Comeback Win: The Dynamo recorded a 2‐1 win on May 26 over the LA Galaxy for their first come‐from‐behind win  of the season. Prior to the Galaxy game, the Dynamo were 0‐3‐1 on the season when allowing the first goal of the game. 

Daytime Dominance: Houston’s 3‐1 loss at Vancouver on June 10 was its first loss in a day game this season, with its record  dropping to 4‐1. The Dynamo have daytime wins over Chivas USA, San Jose, D.C. United and the Galaxy. The Dynamo are  2‐4‐5 at night, but eight of the 11 night games have been on the road. Houston has two more day games this season (July 28  at Toronto FC and Sept. 29 at Philadelphia).    

Cameron’s streak ends: Geoff Cameron missed the May 26 game with the Galaxy while playing for the U.S. in its 5‐1 win  over Scotland. It was the first MLS game that Cameron missed since May 4, 2011 vs. Colorado. Prior to May 26, Cameron  had started and played full time in 40 consecutive matches (playoffs included), the longest streak among Houston field  players in team history. Cameron played 3,576 consecutive minutes in MLS play (playoffs included) before his latest  absence. In a similar feat, Brad Davis’ streak of 45 consecutive starts was broken at Chicago on April 15 due to a calf strain.  

BBVA Compass Stadium opener: The Dynamo opened the 13th soccer‐specific stadium in Major League Soccer on May 12.  On a gorgeous, 82‐degree day in front of a sell‐out crowd of 22,039, the Dynamo honored past legends, including Wade  Barrett, Pat Onstad, Eddie Robinson and Craig Waibel in a pregame ceremony that included the unveiling of 2006 and  2007 MLS Cup championship banners. Brad Davis provided a signature opening moment, delivering a beautiful, curling 30‐ yard strike for the game‐winning goal in the 67th minute.  

Clutch: Luiz Camargo’s 87th‐minute equalizer at New England on May 19 was Houston’s third late goal on the road this  season. Brian Ching’s equalizer in the 81st minute at Columbus on April 21 and Hainault’s game‐winner two minutes into  stoppage time at Chivas USA on March 11 were also reminiscent of 2011 for the Dynamo. Last year, Houston scored 14  goals in the final 15 minutes of games, the second most in MLS (Seattle).      


Six years after the club’s first match on April 2, 2006, only two players remain on the Dynamo roster: Brian Ching and Brad  Davis. Defender Eddie Robinson retired in January and joined the front office as an assistant coach with the team’s Youth  Academy and as a color analyst on TV broadcasts. 

 

UP NEXT: THREE HOME GAMES IN SEVEN DAYS The Dynamo open a key three‐game homestand with two games against teams they are trailing in the standings. The three  games are Sunday, July 15 vs. D.C. United, Wednesday, July 18 vs. Sporting KC and vs. Montreal Impact on Saturday, July 21.
