Sporting KC forges ahead; Revs fall again

[MLS: Saturday] Sporting Kansas City extended its lead over D.C. United in the Eastern Conference to four points with a 2-1 win at Toronto FC on Jacob Peterson's goal with 10 minutes to play. The Columbus Crew climbed into a tie for third place with a victory by the same score at New England on a late goal by Ethan Finlay. The loss was the Revs' eighth straight and dropped them into sixth place.

Sporting KC won its fifth game in a row on the road despite a red card to U.S. World Cup defender Matt Besler with 15 minutes to play for his second yellow card. Jackson put Toronto ahead in the 16th minute, but Sporting KC sent the sellout crowd home disappointed with goals by Graham Zusi and Peterson in the second half.

D.C. United, which has two games in hand on Sporting KC, was one of four MLS clubs playing English opposition on Saturday.

The Revs' defeat was their eighth straight, marking their longest losing streak in the post-shootout era in MLS (2000-present). A.J. Soares had evened the score after Federico Higuain had fired a curling free kick from just outside the area past Bobby Shuttleworth two minutes before the break.
