Colorado Rapids Vs. Sporting Kansas City, 2012 MLS: SKC Blows 2-0 Lead

Sporting Kansas City entered Saturday losers of three straight, so a draw isn't the worst of results, but it is when they were two goals up. After going up 2-0, Sporting allowed the Colorado Rapids to score twice and snatch a draw that has the former undisputed best team in MLS wondering what is going on.

Teal Bunbury got his first start in a while and made it count, scoring twice to put Sporting in front. First he was somehow unmarked at the top of the six-yard box, so finishing Seth Sinovic's cross was easy. Matt Pickens then gifted Bunbury a goal when the goalkeeper spilled a cross right at Bunbury's feet for a tap in.

Colorado came storming back, though. First, Martin Rivero's free kick found Tyrone Marshall right in front of goal for a simple header that beat Jimmy Nielsen to cut Sporting's lead in half. Later on, a free kick did it again. When the initial attempt was stopped, Conor Casey jumped on the loose ball and crossed for Kosuke Kimura, who tapped the ball in and Sporting's lead was gone, but their winless streak was still very much intact.
