Steve Brisendine notes that Sporting Kansas City made unwanted history with its 1-1 home tie with the New York Red Bulls.
Never before -- not as the Wiz, not as the Wizards and not under their current brand -- had the MLS originals scored a goal, not allowed a shot on goal and come away with anything but a victory.
Kei Kamara's header gave Sporting a fourth-minute lead but then he deflected the ball into his own goal in the 28th minute. Despite posting a 60-40 edge in possession percentage, Sporting settled for a tie.
“At some point, teams have to come and get after you,” said Sporting coach Peter Vermes. “They can’t just sit back. (New York) bunkered in tonight. They’re happy to be leaving here with a point. ... We don’t go to places and say that we’ll be happy with getting one point. We want to go there and get three. It’s a little bit different mentality, for sure."
