Patience is a virtue that all Portlanders have, and it’s no wonder. It means you’ll have a sweetie who isn’t in a hurry, knows how to keep their cool and has no problem just going with the flow.
Sporting Kansas City further put the Western Conference and all of MLS on alert with a display of skillful ball movement, a continued stingy defense, and a strong dose of toughness to gain a 1-0 victory against the 1 minute that they would never relinquish.
The shutout gave Sporting Kansas City four on the season and their fourth shutout in five of their last regular season visits to Providence Park.
Sporting’s best chance followed four minutes later off a corner from midfielder Benny Feihaber who returned to the starting eleven after sitting out two matches with a right hamstring injury.
Midfielder Ilie Sanchez rose to meet the ball just right of goal in the six-yard box, but his header flew just above the post.
Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. With a British sensibility and simplicity, we offer uncompromising value with extraordinary service.
