On the road at Red Bull Arena, Sporting Kansas City had no problems on Wednesday night in a 2-0 shutout of New York. CJ Sapong had Sporting in front by the 12th minute and Kei Kamara finished off the scoring seven minutes later, heading in a Graham Zusi corner. Jimmy Nielsen needed four saves for the shutout.
Columbus needed an 89th minute goal from Justin Meram to beat Chivas USA 1-0 at Crew Stadium. Though Columbus took 21 shots on goal to Chivas USA's 9, Chivas USA had the advantage on chances putting five of theirs on frame to the Crew's 4.
At Bucks Shaw Stadium, Danny Mwanga had Portland up two goals by the 62nd minute, but Chris Wondolowski scored in the 73rd and 92nd to split the points in the 2-2 draw. Wondolowski had subbed on in the 58th minute.
“My goal was just trying to add a spark," Wondolowski said. "To be honest, I wanted to give a 90-minute performance in a 30-minute period. Anytime you play a Western rival, it’s going to be a battle and will get heated. With 60 minutes on the bench, I could study the game and you get to come out fresh. The coaches told me to compose myself and do as much as I could.”
