KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Sporting Kansas City won the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday night, outlasting Seattle in a penalty shootout to derail the Sounders' bid to become the first team to win four straight titles.
Kansas City won the shootout 3-2 after the teams finished overtime tied 1-1.
Sporting converted three of five attempts, while the Sounders missed their last three.
Eddie Johnson's shot over the bar on Seattle's last attempt sealed Kansas City first Cup title since the then-Wizards won it in 2004 — also the last time the final went beyond regulation. Kansas City also snapped a seven-game winless streak against Seattle across all competitions.
Kei Kamara opened the scoring for Kansas City on a penalty kick in the 84th minute after Zach Scott was called for a handball in the area. Scott redeemed himself in the 86th with a header from 12 yards off Mauro Rosales' free kick.
Sporting went up a man in the 119th minute, when Patrick Ianni was given his second yellow card, but was unable to take advantage.
REAL MADRID 5, AC MILAN 1: At New York, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a pair of second-half goals, Kaka had three assists against his former and perhaps future team and Real Madrid routed AC Milan in an exhibition at Yankee Stadium between two of Europe's most successful teams.
