Revolution jump out to early lead, but lose to Sporting KC, 3-1

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Diego Rubio scored twice to help Sporting Kansas City beat the New England Revolution 3-1 on Saturday night.

Sporting KC (11-6-11) stretched its club-record home unbeaten streak to 23 games.

New England (10-14-5) has lost two straight, including 7-0 against Atlanta on Wednesday night. Teal Bunbury scored in the fourth minute for the Revolution, but they lost the early momentum when Krisztian Nemeth threw a high elbow at Graham Zusi in the 11th minute. After video replay, Nemeth was ejected and New England finished with 10 players.

Gerso Fernandes scored in the 16th minute for Sporting KC. Rubio slid a shot behind goal keeper Brad Knighton just before half to make it 2-1. Benny Feilhaber bounced a shot off the left post and Rubio tapped in the rebound in the 57th minute.

Galaxy score twice in stoppage time, beat Revs 3-2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Chris Pontius scored twice, including the go-ahead goal in the 93rd minute, and the 10-man the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied with two stoppage-time goals to beat the 10-man New England Revolution 3-2 on Saturday night.

Dave Romney made it 2-all for the Galaxy (8-7-4) with a header to finish Romain Alessandrini's corner in the 92nd minute.

The Revolution (7-5-7) spent most of the game down a man, but took a 2-1 lead on Luis Caicedo's goal late in the first half and held that edge until the Galaxy's late outburst.

The Revs' Cristian Penilla was sent off in the 23rd minute for kicking back at Alessandrini after getting knocked to the ground.

Diego Fagundez opened the scoring five minutes later for New England and Pontius scored his first goal in the 38th minute for LA.

Ashley Cole was shown his second yellow card in the 85th minute and was sent off for the Galaxy.

The Galaxy's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was held out to rest.
