Brad Davis’ first goal with Sporting KC beats Toronto FC 1-0

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Brad Davis scored the first goal with his new team in the 70th minute Sunday night and Sporting Kansas City stayed atop the MLS standings with 1-0 win over Toronto FC.

Davis joined Sporting KC (3-0-0) for his 15th MLS season after playing the last 10 years for the Houston Dynamo.

He beat defender Justin Morrow to a loose ball near the end line, used a hesitation dribble to create an opening and slotted a left-footed shot into the far corner. It was his 56th career MLS goal.

Morrow fell to the turf during the tussle with Davis and received a yellow card after the play for arguing the no-call.

Sporting KC went down a man in the 84th minute when Roger Espinoza was sent off for a serious foul.

Sebastian Giovonco’s free kick for Toronto FC (1-1-1) was blocked by the wall in the final minute of second-half stoppage time.
