SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs PHILADELPHIA UNION LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. October 24, 2012 (WEEK 33, MLS Game #314) 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC SN; KSMO; TCN-Phi) Sporting Kansas City will be looking to close out their regular season Livestrong Sporting Park campaign and secure homefield advantage for the MLS Cup Playoffs when they entertain Philadelphia Union on Wednesday evening. Sporting can clinch the top spot in the East with a victory or a draw, coming off a scoreless draw at New York last weekend. It’s the final road match for Union this season, following a 3-1 defeat in Houston over the weekend. REFEREE: Ismail Elfath.

Union handed Sporting their heaviest defeat of the season in a 4-0 win June 23 at PPL Park, as Jack McInerney scored a pair of goals.  It was the first victory in the all-time series for Philadelphia, following three consecutive draws. Kansas City recorded a 2-0 win against Union on June 10, 2010 in their first meeting ever.  Coaches record: John Hackworth vs. KC: P1 W1 L0 D0 … Peter Vermes vs. PHI: P5 W1 L1 D3 LAST MEETING 6/23: PHI 4, KC 0 (McInerney 1, 42; Pajoy 81; Hoppenot 87)  Union took the lead with the first opening-minute goal in club history. Raymon Gaddis chased down a long ball and played the ball across the face of goal, where Lionard Pajoy managed to keep the ball in play. Jack McInerney latched onto the loose ball lashing a shot into the back of the net from close range.  McInerney showed off his poaching ability again just before the end of the first. A Freddy Adu service in the 43rd minute took a deflection and found defender Carlos Valdés, whose attempt on net was stopped. McInerney, though, was there to gobble up the rebound.  Union made the lead 3-0 with about 20 minutes to play. Substitute Antoine Hoppenot made a nifty cutback move in the box and was taken down by SKC defender Aurélien Collin, drawing a penalty kick, which converted by Pajoy.  Then, in the 87th minute, Hoppenot grabbed a goal of his own when Michael Farfan sent him in alone on goal, giving the forward time and space to loft a shot over KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-4-2): Zac MacMath - Raymon Gaddis, Amobi Okugo, Carlos Valdes, Gabriel Farfan - Freddy Adu (Antoine Hoppenot 59), Michael Lahoud, Brian Carroll, Michael Farfan - Lionard Pajoy, Jack McInerney (Keon Daniel 73).  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Lawrence Olum, Aurelien Collin, Seth Sinovic - Julio Cesar (Michael Thomas 64), Roger Espinoza (Jacob Peterson 84) - Kei Kamara, Graham Zusi, C.J. Sapong (Soony Saad 74) - Teal Bunbury.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City stretched their undefeated streak to 11 games, playing to a scoreless draw with the New York Red Bulls on Saturday evening at Red Bull Arena. Sporting are in first place in the Eastern Conference, with 60 points from 33 matches. LAST MATCH  Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen was credited with five saves on the evening in recording his league-leading 15th shutout of the season.  Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles made just one stop, but it was a vital one, as Kei Kamara headed a beautiful cross from Graham Zusi on target in the 86th minute only to see Robles keep it out with a great reaction save.  Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made two changes to the team that was pegged back into a 1-1 draw with the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium. Aurelien Collin returned to the back four in place of Lawrence Olum, and Jacob Peterson came into the midfield for Roger Espinoza.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-1-4-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Julio Cesar - Jacob Peterson (Lawrence Olum 79), Paulo Nagamura, Graham Zusi (Bobby Convey 88), Kei Kamara - C.J. Sapong. TEAM NEWS  It was the 15th shutout of the season for Sporting and goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen, one away from the league’s all-time single season record, set in 2000 by Kansas City goalkeeper Tony Meola.  “I think he's got to be a slam dunk for Goalkeeper of the Year,” manager Peter Vermes said. “He's had so many shutouts, so many great performances, been so consistent from Game 1 all the way through now to Game 33. He's just a big-time goalkeeper.”  It was the fourth clean sheet in the last five games for Sporting, who have not allowed more than one goal in any of their last 11 games, dating back to Aug. 4, conceding just five goals in that time.  “We kept the shutout but it was a total team effort. New York threw in a lot of numbers forward, they came out with a lot of energy tonight, but we did well to manage. It was a collective team effort,” said defender Matt Besler.  Nielsen is second in goals against average at 0.79, behind Seattle’s Michael Gspurning (0.72), who has played 13 fewer games. Both goals against averages will rank among the top five all-time in MLS history for a single season; the league record is 0.62, set by Kevin Hartman with FC Dallas in 2010.  “He was very big, very focused, very concentrated, even when he got killed in the goal that one time when they basically came and bum-rushed him,” Vermes said. “He still kept the ball out of the back of the net.”  With a victory or a draw vs. Philadelphia – or the failure of D.C. United to defeat the Chicago Fire on Saturday – Sporting will clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference and home-field advantage throughout the MLS Cup Playoffs – and possibly for the MLS Cup Final.  A year ago, Sporting won the Eastern Conference regular season title, but lost 2-0 to Houston in the conference championship at Livestrong Sporting Park.  Bobby Convey was able to make his first appearance since Aug. 4, a late cameo role as a substitute.  With Roger Espinoza sidelined with an ankle injury, Jacob Peterson made his second start in the last four matches. Espinoza did return to full training in the days leading to the Philadelphia match.  “If the game was right now, I couldn't play,” Espinoza said. “I'll see how I feel the rest of the day and [Tuesday], or even Wednesday morning or later. It was sore at the beginning, like any injury, but it loosened up. I'm taking it slow, though, because you don't know – when you're trying to go forward – if you're going to hurt it again.” PHILADELPHIA UNION Philadelphia Union saw their two-game winning streak come to an end, falling 3-1 to the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday evening. Union are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 36 points from 32 games. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo took the lead after just five minutes. After stripping Carlos Valdés of the ball, leaving the Union defender standing in pain, Macoumba Kandji raced in on goal and beat Philadelphia goalkeeper Zac MacMath with a calm, placed finish.  But Union pulled level in the 19th minute. Sheanon Williams capped an overlapping run with an early ball that found forward Jack McInerney slipping between the Dynamo defense to head home from the heart of the area.  Houston was back in front in the 71st minute. Brian Ching led the counter and picked out Boniek García on his left. After cutting in on his favored right foot, García hit a curling shot to the near post that MacMath could only deflect into the roof of the net for the eventual game-winner.  Four minutes later the game was sealed after Will Bruin was taken down by Valdés in the box, and Brad Davis stepped up to slot home the resulting penalty to MacMath’s right.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


Union interim manager John Hackworth made three changes to the team that defeated the New England Revolution 1-0 at PPL Park. Sheanon Williams came into the back four for Gabriel Farfan, and Danny Cruz and Freddy Adu came back into the midfield for Gabriel Gomez and Keon Daniel.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-2-3-1): Zac MacMath - Raymon Gaddis, Carlos Valdes, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams (Antoine Hoppenot 64) - Michael Lahoud, Brian Carroll, Danny Cruz (Roger Torres 78), Michael Farfan, Freddy Adu (Gabriel Gomez 58) - Jack McInerney. TEAM NEWS  The trip to KC will be the final road match of the season for Union, who are 3-9-4 on their travels. With a win they would match their most road victories in a season in club history, after going 4-7-6 last year.  “I’m pretty disappointed in the way we played,” Union manager John Hackworth said. “I didn’t feel like our team performed at the level we are capable of. With that said, you have to give Houston credit. It’s incredibly hard to play here. They made it hard. They came out with a ton of pressure. They fought for everything.  Jack McInerney scored for a fourth consecutive match, a new Union club record.  “It definitely feels good but I would have rather won tonight,” McInerney said. “It (stinks) to lose. ... I thought it was a sloppy match by us. They came out strong and pushed us. We had a tough time controlling the ball and getting forward. It just wasn’t good enough for us tonight.”  McInerney has scored all eight of his goals since he was installed into the starting lineup by then-interim manager John Hackworth, June 16 vs. D.C. United. All of McInerney’s eight goals have come in his 18 appearances since.  Making his return to the back four, Sheanon Williams recorded his second assist, his first since July 29. Both of his assists have come on crosses to McInerney for header goals.  “The ball got out wide. Freddy [Adu] and I got in the box and Sheanon [Williams] played a good ball right-footed and I just tried to flick it back post and it went over Tally [Hall’s] head,” said McInerney.  After a three-match absence, Freddy Adu returned to the Union lineup, playing 58 minutes in a midfield role.  Danny Cruz also returned to the lineup after a one-match absence, after he was forced from the field before halftime because of injury in the win at Chicago on Oct. 3.  “We couldn’t seem to find our rhythm. We gave up an early goal that should never have happened. We did well to get back into the back, but we failed to control the tempo we way we wanted to. Part of that is that this is an incredibly tough place to play,” Hackworth said.

Kansas City Connections... •

• •

• • • •

When Sporting Kansas City midfielder Bobby Convey was drafted by D.C. United in 2000, he became the youngest player ever to sign with MLS. Philadelphia’s Freddy Adu became the youngest American athlete to sign a major league contract in more than 115 years when he also joined D.C. United as the number one overall pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft. Convey was born in Philadelphia. Philadelphia midfielder Michael Farfan played two years of collegiate soccer at the University of North Carolina. Sporting KC defender Michael Harrington also played at UNC, although their time spent in Chapel Hill did not overlap. Philadelphia’s Chandler Hoffman played college ball at UCLA from 2009-2011. Philadelphia’s Amobi Okugo also played at UCLA, but just for one season (2009) before signing his professional contract. Sporting KC defender Chance Myers played just two seasons at UCLA in 2006 and 2007. Philadelphia midfielder Greg Jordan played at Creighton University with Sporting KC defender Seth Sinovic from 2008-2009. Philadelphia Union back-up goalkeeper Chris Konopka played for Kansas City in 2007. Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Lahoud and Sporting KC midfielder Paulo Nagamura were teammates from 2009-2011 at Chivas USA. Philadelphia’s Zac MacMath played three seasons at the University of Maryland before signing his professional contract in 2011. Sporting KC’s Graham Zusi also played for the University of Maryland. In MacMath’s freshman season and Zusi’s senior, the duo helped the Terrapins win the National title.

Sporting Kansas City and the New York Red Bulls played to a scoreless draw at Red Bull Arena. Sporting Kansas City is now 17-7-9 on the season and remains in first place in the Eastern Conference with 60 points, three points ahead of second place D.C. United. With the draw, Sporting Kansas City secured one of the top two spots in the Eastern Conference for the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs. With the draw, Sporting KC has earned the most ties in MLS history among all teams (109). Sporting Kansas City went undefeated against New York this season with a 1-0-2 record. Sporting Kansas City is 18-17-11 against the New York Red Bulls all-time and 4-10-8 on the road against the Red Bulls. With the draw, Sporting Kansas City is now unbeaten in 11 straight matches. The streak is the longest active unbeaten streak in MLS currently and is the longest undefeated streak by an MLS team this season. Saturday’s match marks the first time Sporting KC has been outshot by their opponents in their last 14 games. The last time Sporting KC was outshot was in a 2-0 win at Columbus on July 14th.

The all-time series between Sporting Kansas City and the Philadelphia Union is 1-1-3 in MLS competition. Sporting Kansas City is 1-0-1 at home against the Philadelphia Union all-time and 0-0-1 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. Wednesday’s match-up marks the second match between the two clubs during the 2012 MLS regular season and first match at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. Sporting Kansas City’s 17 victories are the most victories earned during a single-season in the club’s history surpassing their previous benchmark (16) set in 2000 when the club won the Supporters’ Shield and MLS Cup title. Graham Zusi leads the League with 15 assists this season. Zusi is tied with Mauro Rosales, Javier Morales and Landon Donovan with five game-winning assists in 2012. Zusi is one of six MLS players with seven or more assists in both 2011 and 2012. The others are 2011 MVP finalists Mauro Rosales, Dwayne De Rosario and Brad Davis, as well as David Beckham and Patrick Nyarko. Zusi’s next game-winning assist will see him set the club record for most in a single-season in club history with six. He would become just the second player in the last 10 years to record six or more game-winning assists, along with David Beckham (7 in 2011). Sporting Kansas City has allowed 26 goals in 33 matches for a 0.79 goals against average, the best defensive mark in MLS. Sporting Kansas City is 23-2-8 all-time with the backline of Chance Myers, Seth Sinovic, Matt Besler and Aurelien Collin starting in defense in all competition. Sporting Kansas City is unbeaten in the last eleven games Chance Myers started (6-0-5). Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen is the only Sporting KC player to have played every minute of the 2012 MLS regular season. Nielsen has played in 5,220 straight minutes of MLS action (including playoffs). Nielsen’s 0.79 goals against average is currently the best singleseason mark in club history, leading Tony Meola’s historic 2000 season (0.92), in which he won MLS MVP and Goalkeeper of the Year. Nielsen’s 32 shutouts are the second most in MLS since 2010, trailing only Nick Rimando. Sporting Kansas City leads MLS with 528 shots, while allowing the fewest shots against (318). The club has led MLS in shots in five of the past seven seasons, finishing first in shots in 2006 (408), 2007 (420), 2010 (393) and 2011 (488). Kansas City were also League leaders in shots in 2002 and the inaugural 1996 campaign, and lead MLS in all-time shots taken with 7,142. Kei Kamara is one of only four players in MLS with nine or more goals in each of the last three seasons, along with Alvaro Saborio, Chris Wondolowski and Fredy Montero. Kamara leads MLS with 132 shots and is second behind Chris Wondolowski with 49 shots on goal in 2012. Sporting Kansas City finished in first place in the Eastern Conference last season. The club has never finished in first place in their conference in back-to-back seasons. With a draw or victory on Wednesday, Sporting KC will claim first place. Should Sporting Kansas City lose to the Philadelphia Union, Sporting KC could still clinch the Eastern Conference title pending the result of D.C. United versus the Chicago Fire on Saturday.


Sporting Kansas City Game Notes | October 24, 2012 vs Philadelphia Union| 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 17-7-9 (60 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. Sporting Kansas City next 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 before salvaging a point with a second half stoppage time goal against the Houston Dynamo. Five days later Sporting KC travelled to Red Bull Arena, handing the New York Red Bulls their first 2-0 loss at home during the 2012 regular season before earning one point in a scoreless draw at Saputo Stadium. Sporting KC returned home to defeat the Chicago Fire 2-0 at LSP, but, were back on

the road when they salvaged draws against the Columbus Crew and the New York Red Bulls. Sporting Kansas City is now undefeated in eleven consecutive matches in MLS competition. 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 bestof-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. Team Awards | Prior to the match Sporting Kansas City will announce their 2012 team awards in four categories: Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year and Humanitarian of the Year. In addition, the 2012 Bob Gansler Award for the Most Outstanding Academy Player of the Year will be presented at halftime.

Philadelphia Union have won 10, drawn six and lost 16 of their 32 MLS games this season and sit in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Since being named interim team manager on June 13th, John Hackworth has led the Union to an 8-94 record in MLS regular season games. Jack McInerney is the Union’s leading scorer with eight goals this season, all of which have come after Hackworth’s appointment. He is currently on a four game goal scoring streak, which is a franchise record.

Sebastien Le Toux scored 11 in 2010. Michael Farfan is the Union’s leader in assists with five assists this season. The Union is fifth in the league in goals against this season with 40. Only Kansas City (26), Seattle (32), Salt Lake (35) and Houston (39) have given up fewer goals. Goalkeeper Zac MacMath has set single season records for the Union in games started (30), minutes played (2700), saves (88), wins (10) and shutouts (8). The Union have committed 437 fouls this season, which places them third in the MLS behind Kansas City (440) and Vancouver (474). Goalkeeper Chris Konopka was drafted by Sporting Kansas City in the 2007 Supplemental Draft and spent one season with the team, then called the Kansas City Wizards.

Jack McInerney became the first Union player since its inception to score in four consecutive MLS games.

He then beat a pair of Union defenders and slotted the ball past the Union’s keeper Zac MacMath in the 5th minute.
