Sporting Kansas City 4, Minnesota United FC 0 | 2017 U.S. Open Cup Recap

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Dom Dwyer became Sporting’s career Open Cup scoring leader, his sixth tally in the competition coming in a rout for the home side.

Ike Opara headed home Graham Zusi’s corner kick in the 43rd minute, and Gerso made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time when he corralled Daniel Salloi’s shot off the woodwork and put it back in. Dwyer made it 3-0 in the 72nd and Salloi scored his first career goal for Sporting in the 83rd.

The match was delayed for about 10 minutes in the second half when Minnesota defender Joseph Greenspan was injured in a collision with Sporting midfielder Roger Espinoza. Greenspan was placed on a backboard and taken out on a gurney; his condition and the nature of his injury were not immediately available.
