HARRISON, N.J. (AP) Benny Feilhaber and Dominic Dwyer scored to help Sporting Kansas City beat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 on Saturday night.
Goalkeeper Tim Melia had six saves – including a diving stop of a penalty kick by Bradley Wright-Phillips – for his MLS-leading third shutout for Sporting (4-1-0).
Dwyer beat two New York defenders on the dribble, then slipped a pass to a streaking Graham Zusi, who crossed to Feilhaber for a far-post goal in the 17th minute.
Dwyer spun around a defender and put away a left-footer, off a throw-in from Saal Abdul-Salaam, from just outside the 6-yard box to make it 2-0 in the 60th.
New York (1-4-0) outshot Sporting 22-7, including 10 by Wright-Phillips – the highest game total in MLS this season.
The Red Bulls, who won the Supporters’ Shield last season, have been shutout in each of their four losses.
