Maxime Crépeau had a pretty busy day at the office, but he was left to fend for himself as the Vancouver Whitecaps fell 3-0 to Kansas City Sporting on Sunday.
The goalkeeper saw the opposing team shoot no less than 27 shots towards his cage. Of the group, seven were on target. This is quite a contrast to the nine shots attempted by the Whitecaps with only two on Sporting’s net.
Daniel Salloi opened the scoring for SKC in the 28th minute. Only four minutes later, Alan Pulido scored his first goal of the game on a penalty.
He put the game out of Vancouver’s side in the 58th minute. Crépeau made several spectacular saves in the meeting, including a few when diving as Sporting put pressure on their net at the end of the second half.
Cincy loses before facing Montreal
Gonzalo Higuain scored a brace, including the winning goal late in the game, as Inter Miami CF beat FC Cincinnati 3-2 at TQL Stadium.
Nick Hagglund thought he had given Cincy a point snatch from his rivals when he headed in the 82nd minute.
But Higuain threw a cold shower on the local crowd, scoring just three minutes later.
Brek Shea rose to the record books by making himself the first goalscorer in TQL Stadium history in the 7th minute to give Miami a 1-0 lead.
FC Cincinnati is the next opponent of CF Montreal. The two clubs will meet each other next Saturday at 1 p.m., at the temporary home of the Montrealers.
The Sounders still undefeated
The Seattle Sounders have gone undefeated in six games this season as they outscored Los Angeles FC by 2-0.
Xavier Arreaga opened the scoring in the 57th minute with a header redirection after a corner kick from Joao Paulo.
The combination Alex Roldan and Brad Smith made their own in the 73rd minute. Roldan spotted Smith at the end of his run and Smith pushed the ball into the back of the net for his third goal of the campaign.
Carlos Vela made a comeback after his injury as he made his debut in the 70th minute.
The Revolution goes with victory
A late goal from the New England Revolution saw him take a 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew.
Brandon Bye skillfully spotted his teammate Adam Buksa in the box who made the strings vibrate in the 86th minute. He made his coach look good, who had brought him into the match only three minutes earlier.
So far, both teams had generated little offensive action. At the end of the meeting, the Revolution recorded three shots on target while the Crew sent only one ball which reached the cage of New England.
Orlando was ready for his match
Orlando City benefited from a quick goal to slip away to a 1-0 victory over DC United. Mauricio Pereyra worked hard for his net in the seventh minute.
He inherited the ball in the penalty area following a long cross. After missing his first control, he was able to recover the ball before unleashing a strike that ended its race at the back of the net.
Orlando then held on in defense as DC United only got one shot to his goal despite 55% of possession time in his favor.
