Sporting KC rolls past Colorado Rapids 3-1 at sold-out Children’s Mercy Park

(April 9, 2017) -- Sporting Kansas City extended its unbeaten start to the 2017 campaign with a commanding 3-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Sunday at sold-out Children's Mercy Park.

Veteran Seth Sinovic bagged his first career regular season goal in the sixth minute before Gerso and Dom Dwyer added second-half strikes of their own in a wire-to-wire performance. Colorado pulled one back through Kevin Doyle's late penalty kick, but it wasn't near enough to deny the hosts all three points in front of a national television audience on FS1.

The result extends Sporting Kansas City's (2-0-3, 9 points) home unbeaten run to 12 regular season matches dating back to last June, tying an all-time club record, and snaps a five-game losing skid to the Rapids. Sporting KC remains one of three MLS teams without a loss through Week 6 and vaults to fourth place in the Western Conference, while Colorado slips to ninth.
