Sporting Kansas City Beats Colorado 2-0

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Teal Bunbury scored goals in the 49th and 59th minutes leading Sporting Kansas City to a 2-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Sunday night in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The second goal came on a penalty kick. Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen made one save.

This is the first leg of a home-and-home series where the winner advances based on aggregate goals.

Colorado was without midfielder Jamie Smith, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last Thursday in the team’s the wild card victory over Columbus.

The defending MLS Cup champions lost two more players in Sunday’s game, Forward Caleb Folan (left knee) and Kosuke Kimura (left foot) in the first half.
