Sporting Kansas City (M.L.S.) 4, Minnesota United FC (M.L.S.) 0
2015 U.S. Open Cup champs, Sporting Kansas City disposed of Minnesota United with a dominant 4-0 win in the Fourth Round of the Open Cup, halting the Loons’ Open Cup campaign for the third time in four years. Sporting KC’s goals came in bunches, first over a span of two minutes at the end of the first half. Ike Opara headed U.S. MNT defender Graham Zusi’s corner past a charging Patrick McLain in the 43rd minute. Just a few ticks later, Gerso Fernandes tallied an unassisted goal when he calmly converted on a rebound. Dom Dwyer furthered the lead with a left-footed finish in the 72nd minute, followed by a nifty Daniel Salloi marker in the 83rd minute.
