Sporting Kansas City 2, Sounders 1: Box score

With the Seattle loss, the New England Revolution (21-4-6) clinched the Supporters’ Shield. Kansas City (16-7-7) moved within three points of first-place Seattle (17-7-7) in the Western Conference.

Russell has scored six goals in seven career games against Seattle, including one in each of the three games this season. He joined Fanendo Adi (Portland in 2016) as the only players to score in three different games against Seattle in a regular season.

Kansas City, which lost at Vancouver in its last match, has not lost consecutive matches since September 2020. Seattle, which ended a three-match losing streak against Sporting KC in September, hasn’t defeated Sporting multiple times in a season since 2011.
