Sporting Kansas City reaches 6-0
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Aurelien Collin scored on a 63rd-minute header, and Sporting Kansas City continued the best start in team history with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Graham Zusi recorded his league-leading sixth assist for Sporting, the first team to start a season 6-0 since the Los Angeles Galaxy won their first 12 games in 1998.
Real (5-2) had its shutout streak broken at 267 minutes, while Sporting recorded its fifth clean sheet in six outings. Kansas City also extended its MLS-record streak of not allowing a shot on goal to 335 minutes before Jimmy Nielsen had to save Nat Borchers' header in second-half stoppage time.
Collin scored his second goal of the season when he ran onto Zusi's corner kick and nodded it past Real's Nick Rimando.
