Sporting Kansas City tops Timbers 1-0

Posted: Updated:

Jacob Peterson scored and Benny Feilhaber had an assist to help Sporting Kansas City beat the Portland Timbers 1-0 on Sunday.

Peterson flicked a header, off a free kick by Feilhaber, to the bottom-right corner in the 50th minute.

Alec Kann made a diving stop of a strike by Darlington Nagbe -- Portland's only shot on goal -- in the 10th.

The Timbers (7-8-8) had chances in stoppage time. Jack McInerney blasted a right footer from the left side of the box off the crossbar in the first minute, and Fanendo Adi's header, off a cross by Vytautas Andriuskevicius,  from the right side of the 6-yard box missed wide right about three minutes later.

Sporting (10-10-4) has won two in a row and five straight at home.

Portland has lost two straight after an nine-match unbeaten streak.

Kansas City's Jimmy Medranda earned a fifth yellow card and will be suspended for Sporting's next match, Aug. 7 at Portland.
