                         === SKC doubles up on Crew ===
 
 Kansas  City,  KS (SportsNetwork.com) -  A goal in  the 10th minute from Jacob
 Peterson  and another in the final moments from Claudio Bieler helped Sporting
 Kansas City to a 1-0 home victory against the Columbus Crew on Sunday.
 
 Peterson's  goal held up  over the final 80 minutes with Bieler coming off the
 bench  to score just  before the final whistle, while the Crew played the last
 10 minutes with 10 men after Wil Trapp picked up a second yellow card.
 
 The result extends the Crew's winless streak to five games, while Sporting has
 won two of its last three contests.
 
 A  deflected shot from  Graham Zusi inside the penalty area led to the opening
 goal  as the ball bounced around the box and ended up at the feet of Peterson,
 who drove home a first-time shot from eight yards.
 
 Sporting  goalkeeper  Eric Kronberg had to  be alert to keep out a point-blank
 header from the Crew's Bernardo Anor in the 31st minute, but the hosts had the
 better of the play in the second half.
 
 Dominic Dwyer squandered a good chance in the 49th when he failed to turn home
 a  pass  from Zusi  seven yards from  goal, while Benny  Feilhaber sent a shot
 whistling  past  the top corner  of the net after  he gained possession in the
 final third.
 
 Trapp  was sent  off after  he received  a second  yellow card  for a  foul on
 Feilhaber  in the 80th minute, and Bieler put the finishing touches on the win
 with a tap in after being set up by Zusi.
