KANSAS CITY (AP) — C.J. Sapong scored in the third minute of second-half stoppage time to salvage a draw for 1-1 Sporting Kansas City against Houston on Friday, pushing out their lead in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference to four points.
A day after Chicago had closed within three points, Sporting looked like going down to a dispiriting home loss as they trailed to Brad Davis' 58th minute goal.
However Sapong bobbed up with the last-gasp equalizer to extend Sporting's unbeaten streak to six games. By contrast, Houston has won only one of its past six.
In the Western Conference, Los Angeles moved up to third with a 2-0 home win over Colorado.
Robbie Keane scored on a Landon Donovan pass in the 15th minute and Swedish international Christian Wilhelmsson, making his MLS debut, netted from a long pass from Marcelo Sarvas in the 58th minute.
David Beckham was missing from the Galaxy team due to an ankle injury.
