SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs HOUSTON DYNAMO LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. September 14, 2012 (WEEK 28, MLS Game #262) 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC SN) Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo meet for the third time this season in a match that has huge implications on the Eastern Conference playoff chase when the clubs face off Friday evening at Livestrong Sporting Park. The teams are separated by just five points in the East. Sporting lead after their 2-1 win vs. Toronto FC two weeks ago that extended their unbeaten streak to five games, while the Dynamo are coming off a dramatic 1-0 home win vs. Real Salt Lake last week that put an end to a four-game winless run.

After a scoreless draw in Kansas City on July 7, the Dynamo took a 2-1 win at home July 18 behind a pair of goals from Calen Carr.  The teams met in last year’s Eastern Conference Championship, won 2-0 by the Dynamo at Livestrong Sporting Park. 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 four of the seven MLS league and cup meetings since at home (with three draws).  Coaches record: Peter Vermes vs. HOU: P7 W2 L2 D3 … Dominic Kinnear vs. KC: P20 W8 L5 D7 LAST MEETING  The Dynamo took the lead in the 25th minute following a 23-pass sequence. Will Bruin took an Andre Hainault ball into the box and slotted a pass to Calen Carr, who had little trouble placing the ball past SKC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.  Sporting evened terms in the 41st minute. After Teal Bunbury was fouled from behind in the box by Hainault, prompting referee Mark Kadlecik to point to the spot, Kei Kamara converted the resulting penalty.  But just before halftime, SKC were reduced in numbers when Peterson Joseph was sent off for a sweeping, two-footed tackle from behind on Carr.  The home side hit for the winner in the 79th minute. After setting Brad Davis up out wide, Carr made a run in the box for the return ball, collided with the pass in a mass of bodies and watched it trickle into the goal.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe Boniek Garcia, Warren Creavalle (Luiz Camargo 68), Brad Davis - Calen Carr, Will Bruin (Brian Ownby 78), Macoumba Kandji (Brian Ching 60).  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Michael Harrington, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic (Chance Myers 79) - Michael Thomas, Paulo Nagamura - Kei Kamara, Peterson Joseph (sent off 47+), Jacob Peterson (Bobby Convey 82) - Teal Bunbury (C.J.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City return to action after extending their undefeated run to five games with a 2-1 win against Toronto FC on Sept. 1 at Livestrong Sporting Park. Sporting are in first place in the Eastern Conference, with 50 points from 27 matches. LAST MATCH  TFC took the lead a minute from halftime. Robert Eckersley sent a ball over the top to Ryan Johnson, who had slipped behind Sporting's back line. He collected the ball at the edge of the penalty area and calmly slotted his left-footed shot past goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen and into the lower right corner of the goal.  Sporting equalized on the hour mark after a fortunate carom at the edge of the penalty area. Paulo Nagamura hit a right-footed volley from Jeremy Hall's headed clearance that took a short bounce off the pitch and looped over goalkeeper Freddy Hall's head.  The game-winner came three minutes from time from substitute Oriol Rosell. Chance Myers laid a pass that found Rosell at the top right corner of the penalty area, and his first-time shot eluded goalkeeper Hall and rolled inside the far post.  Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made two changes to the team that played to a 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls at Livestrong Sporting Park. Lawrence Olum came into central defense for the suspended Aurelien Collin, and C.J. Sapong replaced the injured Teal Bunbury up top.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-3-3): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Lawrence Olum, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Paulo Nagamura, Julio Cesar (Oriol Rosell 78), Roger Espinoza - Graham Zusi, C.J. Sapong (Dom Dwyer 86), Kei Kamara. TEAM NEWS  Sporting have won four times in their five-game unbeaten streak, the longest for the club since opening the season with seven consecutive victories.  “It’s good for the mental aspect to maintain the mindset of winning the Supporters’ Shield. It keeps us ahead in our conference, which is the most important thing,” said SKC manager Peter Vermes. “We want to solidify playoffs and get home field advantage. It’s a good mentality to have.”  Paulo Nagamura scored his first goal with Sporting KC, since coming to the club in the offseason from Chivas USA. It was the third time in his eight-year MLS career Nagamura has scored a goal and assisted on another in the same game.  “Shooting is one of my strengths. I’m not a goal scorer, but it is good to step in and score when the team needs something. I saw the ball come to me and it sat well, and it was a good strike,” said Nagamura.  Oriol Rosell made his second appearance with Sporting – his longest after coming on as a late substitute Aug. 11 vs. D.C. United – and scored his first MLS goal.  “What he did really well when he came in was that he was moving the ball, circulating the ball like we wanted him to,” Vermes said. "That's a real specialty of his game. … He made a good decision – the place that he went to, his timing – on the ball that went out to Chance. He arrived at the right place, and his finish was excellent.”  In the first match since Teal Bunbury was lost for the season with a knee injury, C.J. Sapong filled the central striker role, his first start since July 21.  Rookie Dom Dwyer made his MLS debut, coming off the bench for the final four minutes. “The reason why he was in was because the work he's been putting in has been showing up in training,” Vermes said. “That's the reason he gets his shot. But the discouragement was something he had to deal with.”  Said Dwyer: “I've been frustrated. You just have to work hard, keep yourself ready mentally and keep yourself prepared physically. It's been tough. I'm happy, but I'm not satisfied yet. I just want to keep working and get as many minutes as I can.”  Bobby Convey was again unavailable for a fourth consecutive match and has not yet been able to return to full training.  “We're slowly bringing him along," Vermes said. "He has a good day, then he has a bad day. So we're just trying to manage things and get through to where he can have a week of good and then get through it. … I wish I could tell you when he'll be back, but I think he'll be back by the end of the season, for sure.”  Kansas City came back from a second-half deficit to win for the first time since Sept. 22, 2010, when the thenWizards came back from 3-1 down at halftime to defeat Houston, 4-3.  “The patience from us in the second half was huge. What we were able to do was to be patient and circulate the ball. And that sometimes is the most difficult thing to do in the second half because you are so antsy to get the goal,” Vermes said. “To have that calmness and composure is great. You have to take each game in 45minute sections. We built it up in the second half to get those two goals and secure the win.” HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo put an end to their four-game winless streak, getting a dramatic late penalty kick for a 1-0 win against Real Salt Lake last Thursday at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo are in third place in the Eastern Conference with 45 points from 28 games.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


LAST MATCH  The Dynamo had a glorious opportunity to take the lead in the 75th minute. Macoumba Kandji squared a ball towards the center of the box for a streaking Will Bruin, where he was knocked to the ground by RSL defender Chris Schuler prompting referee Ismail Elfath to point to the spot. Brad Davis stepped up to take the resulting penalty, but goalkeeper Nick Rimando made a great diving save to his left.  Just when it looked as though the teams would settle for the scoreless draw, Rimando made the mistake of rushing off his line to punch away a cross, only to run over Kandji in the process. This time it was Colin Clark who stepped up to take the spot kick and he drove the ball hard down the middle for the full three points.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made four changes to the team that went down to a 3-1 defeat by the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park. Kofi Sarkodie, Calen Carr, Luiz Camargo and Colin Clark all came into the team, with Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Boniek Garcia and Je-Vaughn Watson all on international duty.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-3-3): Tally Hall - Kofi Sarkodie, Ricardo Clark, Bobby Boswell (Cam Weaver 74), Corey Ashe - Calen Carr, Luiz Camargo, Brad Davis - Macoumba Kandji, Will Bruin (Alex Dixon 89), Colin Clark. TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo put an end to their four-game winless run with their first victory since Aug. 3. “There was a lot of adversity tonight and the guys fought really hard. It’s a valuable three points,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. “ ... I think the guys are spent. Mentally it’s been tough and physically it’s been more tough, but the three points are there and hopefully the wins continue.”  Besides the players lost to international duty, Kinnear faced some real selection issues because of illness. The Dynamo had just five available substitutes, as potential substitutes Nathan Sturgis and Brian Ownby were both unavailable to post.  “Coming into the locker room, we had a team in mind and what you saw running out wasn’t the same that we planned on,” Kinnear said. “We had three lineups on paper, knowing guys were sick and just in case they couldn’t make the game. I’m very proud to coach this team to see what they have gone through over the past few days and to come out of here with three points is very valuable for us.”  Making his first start since June 23 – and his first MLS appearance since July 3 – Colin Clark played the full 90 minutes and contributed his first goal of the season, hammering home the late penalty after Brad Davis was earlier denied.  “I think a lot of the guys here are always prepared to play,” said Colin Clark. “When your name is called you just do what you can. We had some people sick, some hurt which gave people some chances and I think everyone did pretty well tonight.”  The shutout was the 11th of the season for goalkeeper Tally Hall, tying the club record set by Pat Onstad in 2007. “[Tally] was excellent,” said Brad Davis. “You need your goalie to come up big in some games and he was excellent tonight keeping us in the game and giving us a chance to win.”  After playing every minute of every match thus far this season, center back Bobby Boswell was also ill and forced to come off after 74 minutes.  Kofi Sarkodie made his first league start of the season, playing 90 minutes at right back. In addition, Ricardo Clark moved to center back after starting the previous two matches in central midfield.  “I thought it was good. Ricardo [Clark] had a good game back there. I wasn’t planning on playing him back there, but it worked out. He made some great interceptions, had good individual defending at times and passed well out of the back. He showed he can play well back there for us,” said Kinnear.  Luiz Camargo made his first appearance since Aug. 10. Cam Weaver made just his second appearance – both as a substitute – over the past four months.  “There were a lot of guys out there struggling physically and gutting it out,” said Calen Carr, who moved to right back late in the match. “You just look around man to man everyone’s giving it all they’ve got. Everybody put in a hard shift and we got rewarded.”  The win extended the Dynamo’s home unbeaten streak to 22 games in league play, tying the Columbus Crew (2008-09) for the second-longest in MLS history. Real Salt Lake’s 29-game streak from 2009-11 is the league record.  “We pride ourselves on getting results at home; not just results but wins,” said Colin Clark. “It’s a mentality throughout the team. Even coming in shorthanded, we still wanted to come out and win.”

Sporting Kansas City Game Notes | September 14, 2012 vs Houston Dynamo| www.SportingKC.com

Sporting Kansas City News, Notes and headlines RESULTS | Sporting Kansas City currently sits in first place of the Eastern Conference with a record of 15-7-5 (50 points). 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. 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 in July when they beat Montreal 3-1 at Saputo Stadium followed by 0-0 home draw with the Houston Dynamo. Sporting KC then went on the road earning a 2-0 victory over the Columbus Crew moving them back up the standings and into sole possession of first place among Eastern Conference rivals before dropping a 2-1 decision against Houston in their first ever match at BBVA Compass Stadium. Sporting Kansas City returned back to LSP to face the New England Revolution in the first of four consecutive home matches in all-competition. The match resulted in a scoreless draw. Sporting KC then fell to Montpellier Herault SC 3-0 in their first of two international friendlies before losing to Eastern Conference foe Columbus 2-1 despite outshooting the Crew 25-12. Sporting Kansas City then went on to draw 1-1 with EPL side Stoke City FC with a late equalizer in second half stoppage time. After the friendly, Sporting KC earned the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title after defeating the Seattle Sounders FC in a shootout at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. In their most recent MLS matches, Sporting Kansas City hosted D.C. United and earned a 2-1 victory at LSP followed by a 1-0 road win over Toronto FC at BMO Field. Upon arrival back to the States, Sporting Kansas City earned a 1-1 draw against the New York Red Bulls and a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC. LAMAR HUNT U.S. OPEN CUP CHAMPIONS | Sporting Kansas City was crowned the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Champions for the first time since 2004 after beating the Seattle Sounders FC at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park 3-2 in penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw in regulation. Sporting KC took the lead on a Kei Kamara penalty kick in the 84th minute after a hand ball by Zach Scott. The goal marked Kamara’s second goal in U.S.

Open Cup competition since joining Kansas City. Just two minutes later, Seattle’s Scott got a bit of redemption when he notched the equalizer off a free kick from Rosales. After two overtime periods the match was still tied and headed to a best-of-five shootout. Sporting KC, shooting first, began with Kamara’s second successful attempt of the night. The Sounders would match it with a make of their own through Brad Evans’ shot to his left. Gspurning gave his team the advantage with a stop on Espinoza and Seattle momentarily led following Marc Burch’s blast down the middle. Besler pulled Sporting KC back level with a shot off the underside of the crossbar and into the back of the net. Alonso and Zusi both sent their shots over the crossbar in back-to-back attempts, and Nielsen made a superb save to his left to deny Christian Tiffert to send it to the fifth and final penalty kick with it all to be decided. Nagamura’s initial attempt was saved by Gspurning, but he was ruled to have come off his line early and the Brazilian calmly converted the ensuing second chance to his left to put Sporting KC ahead in dramatic fashion. Johnson walked to the spot with LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in a frenzy, needing to score to keep Seattle alive. Back in Kansas City for the first time since he played with the then-Wizards in 2007, Johnson’s shot sailed over the crossbar and brought an end to the shootout with Seattle’s third straight miss from the mark. Prior to the shootout loss, the Sounders had won three straight U.S. Open Cups, and had not been bested in the competition since August 12, 2008, when they were still a United Soccer League franchise. WHEN THEY LAST MET | Sporting Kansas City last faced the Houston Dynamo on July 18, 2012 in their first ever visit to BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo earned the 2-1 result to extend their home unbeaten streak which has expanded to 9-0-5. Calen Carr put the Dynamo on the board first. Will Bruin and Andre Hainault combined for a give-and-go up the right sideline before Bruin played the ball sqaure to Carr who placed his shot past Nielsen from six-yards out. Kamara equalized in the 42nd minute after being rewarded a penalty when Hainault dragged down Jacob Peterson in the box. The momentum was short lived as Sporting Kansas City’s Peterson Joseph was shown red in second half stoppage time for his tackle on Carr. The man-advantage for Houston proved too strong as Carr finished his second goal of the night in the 79th minute when he was able to redirect a cross from the Dynamo captain Brad Davis.

DYNAMO NOTES 

_

Short‐handed Dynamo earn resilient 1‐0 win over Real Salt Lake: Missing four players to international duty, and several  more to injury or a stomach virus, the Dynamo could only field a five‐man bench against Real Salt Lake on Sept. 6. In the  end, Colin Clark’s penalty four minutes into stoppage time was enough for the Dynamo to halt a four‐game winless streak.  In a goalkeeping exhibition, Tally Hall and Nick Rimando matched each other save‐for‐save, with Rimando saving a Brad  Davis penalty and Hall making outstanding saves on all three of Salt Lake’s shots on target. Hall earned his 11th shutout of  the year to equal former teammate Pat Onstad’s franchise record for shutouts in a season.  

Wonderful vs. West: With the 1‐0 win over Real Salt Lake on Sept. 6, the Dynamo improved to 5‐2‐1 on the season against  the heralded Western Conference. Houston also has wins against FC Dallas, LA Galaxy, San Jose and Chivas USA.      


Four Dynamo players return from international duty: Four Dynamo players – Boniek Garcia, Andre Hainault, Jermaine  Taylor and Je‐Vaughn Watson – return from international duty for Friday’s showdown with Sporting KC. Taylor started  and played 90 minutes for Jamaica in both of its games against the United States. Watson also started both games for  Jamaica, playing 90 minutes on Friday and 75 minutes on Tuesday. Hainault played 90 minutes in both of Canada’s  matches with Panama. Likewise, Garcia played 90 minutes for Honduras in both of its wins over Cuba.  

Dynamo newcomer Giles Barnes eligible for debut: Midfielder Giles Barnes has received his P‐1 Visa and international  transfer certificate and is eligible for selection on Friday at Kansas City. Barnes, 24, joins Houston with eight years of  experience in the upper levels of English soccer. He has 138 total appearances in all competitions, including 35 games in the  Barclays English Premier League. Barnes also made 12 appearances for England’s U‐19 national team. The attacking  midfielder joined Derby County of England in 2005 at age 17 and helped the Rams gain promotion to the English Premier  League in 2007. Barnes scored ten goals in 84 appearances with Derby County and earned its Young Player of the Year  award in 2007. The London native spent 2010‐11 with West Bromwich Albion of the English Premier League and made 19  appearances for the Baggies. Barnes played the 2011‐12 season with Doncaster Rovers of the English Championship, the  second tier of English soccer. The winger tallied one goal and four assists in 36 appearances in all competitions last season.   

Hall ties former mentor Pat Onstad: Goalkeeper Tally Hall extended his career high with his 11th shutout of the season in  the 1‐0 win over Real Salt Lake on Sept. 6. With the clean sheet, Hall equaled former teammate Pat Onstad, who set a  franchise record with 11 shutouts in 2007, when the club had a total of 13 clean sheets in 30 regular season games. Hall is  tied for the most shutouts in MLS in 2012 with Jimmy Nielsen of Sporting Kansas City.  

Dynamo in historic home territory: With the 1‐0 win over RSL on Sept. 6, the Dynamo have equaled the second‐longest  home unbeaten streak in league history, at 22 games. Houston is now 9‐0‐5 at BBVA Compass Stadium since its opening  on May 12. The Dynamo have not lost a home game in over a year, with their last home defeat on June 18, 2011, a 2‐0 loss to  Columbus. The chart below details the longest regular season home unbeaten streaks in Major League Soccer history:  Team

First CCL road win in Dynamo history: The 3‐1 win at FAS on Aug. 22 was the first Dynamo road win in Central America  in team history. It was Houston’s first road win in international competition since a 3‐1 win over D.C. United on July 19,  2008 in the SuperLiga.  

Bruin passes Holden: Will Bruin’s goal on Aug. 25 vs. Toronto was his 16th regular season goal in his two‐year career.  Bruin moved past Stuart Holden for fourth on the franchise list. Dwayne De Rosario (24 goals) is next on the list.
