Sporting Kansas City


Sporting Kansas City reached the half-way point of the 2014 MLS season on Sunday with a 1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire at Sporting Park.


It’s possible that the Fire can clinch a playoff berth in Saturday’s last regular season home match against Toronto FC – but don’t count on it.


A peek at the Major League Soccer standings suggests that a match against D.C. United is just what the Fire needs to jump-start its hopes of playing in the postseason.


No question the Columbus Crew needed to win Saturday’s match more than the Fire did — and it certainly showed.
