Woodbury's Brent Kallman Scores as Minnesota United Plays Sporting KC to a Draw

October 07, 2017 09:54 PM

Brent Kallman tied it with a header in the 84th minute and Minnesota United held for a 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.
    
Kallman sent Abu Danladi's cross buzzing past Sporting's backup goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra. Starter Tim Melia was limping and grabbing at his right hamstring in the 59th minute when Dykstra entered as a substitute. It was Melia's first time not on the field for Sporting KC this season.
    
Diego Rubio opened the scoring for Sporting (12-7-12) in the second minute of first-half stoppage time, controlling Latif Blessing's pass in a tight space and slotting it home with his left foot.
    
Minnesota's Joseph Greenspan was sent off for his second yellow card in the 91st minute, but Bobby Shuttleworth helped United (10-16-6) preserve the draw with a reaction save in the 93rd.
    
Sporting KC moved alone into second place in the Western Conference with the point earned.
