TORONTO (AP) Substitute Jacob Peterson scored in the 80th minute to help 10-man Sporting Kansas City beat Toronto FC 2-1 on Saturday night.

The former Toronto midfielder took advantage of Toronto's inability to clear a deflected cross and poked the ball past goalkeeper Joe Bendik.

Graham Zusi tied it for defending MLS champion Kansas City (11-5-5) in the 48th minute.

Kansas City has won four straight and is 6-0-1 in its last seven games. It also extended its club-record road winning streak to five games.

Jackson scored for Toronto (7-6-5) in the 16th minute.

Kansas City captain Matt Besler was sent off in the 76th minute for a second yellow card.

CREW 2, REVOLUTION 1

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Ethan Finlay scored in the 84th minute and Columbus beat New England to extend the Revolution's losing streak to eight games.

Finlay ran down a long ball from Justin Meram, shrugged off a defender, and hammered a shot into the back of the net.

Federico Higuain opened the scoring for the Crew (6-7-8) in the 43rd minute, bending in a free kick around the wall from 23 yards out. New England's Kelyn Rowe missed on a left-footed shot in the 50th minute, but his ensuing corner kick to the head of A.J. Soares tied it at 1.

New England (7-11-2) is one short of the club record for consecutive losses set in 1997-98.
