Sporting down Impact 4-0

When it rains it pours. Since the rebrand, Sporting Kansas City have scored four goals in a game only three times in MLS play. On Saturday, Dom Dwyer and Aurelien Collin made it four times – scoring two goals each. Sporting (3-1-2) defeated the Montreal Impact (0-4-3) 4-0 in front of another sold out crowd at Sporting Park – the 40th consecutive – and it felt downright historical and magical.

Scoring got underway in the 31st minute after Matt Besler rifled a throw into the box, which eventually ricocheted off of Callum Mallace for an own goal. Aurelien Collin was initially credited for the score, but after seeing several reviews, it was clear that Mallace had the definitive touch.

Montreal is a bad team right now, and this goal is an apt metaphor for the club’s current state of affairs.

Collin was not to be denied on the night though. He notched a goal (Lawrence Olum with the assist) in the 71st minute to put Sporting up 2-0.

The fun was just getting started.

Dom Dwyer added goals in the 74th minute (assist by Jacob Peterson) and 86th minute (assist by Graham Zusi).

Even after a scoring barrage, Dwyer was critical of his own performance. When asked about his brace, he replied, “It’s funny, because I was more pleased with the way I played a few weeks ago in regards to my hold up play. I gave it away a bit easily tonight. But I got myself in the right position and got two goals, so I’m pleased in that sense.”

Peter Vermes was much more complimentary about the striker’s performance: “He was a pain in the ass for their defenders.”

That might be the understatement of the year as Dwyer was running circles around the Montreal defense for most of the night. The only defense that the Impact could muster was through overtly physical play.

Dwyer is quickly shaping up to be the goal scoring forward that Sporting has needed for some time. At the very least, Aurelien Collin won’t need to score all the goals anymore.

It is easy to overlook the outstanding defensive display that earned Sporting their third clean sheet of the season. Eric Kronberg looked every bit the role of starter, and he has only gotten better with each match under his belt. He wasn’t called upon much against the Impact, but when he was, he was more than up to the task. The one time that Kronberg was caught out of position, Collin bailed him out with a wonderful goal line clearance.

“I was lucky. He had the whole goal open and I tried to stay on my feet. Thank god I stopped the ball,” said Collin after the match.

The 2014 edition of Sporting Kansas City took a massive step forward against the Impact. As long as Peter Vermes is gaffer, Sporting Kansas City will be a defensive minded squad. Against the Impact though, supporters got a glimpse at just how potent Sporting’s offense can be when the club is firing on all cylinders.

Next up, Sporting will travel to New England to face the Revolution (2-3-2) on April 26 at 6:30. The game will be televised locally on KMCI-TV.
