Smith scores first MLS goal, Sporting KC beats Earthquakes

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Graham Smith scored his first MLS goal, Benny Feilhaber also connected and Sporting Kansas City beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 on Saturday night.

Smith tapped in a rebound from point-blank range to make it 2-1 in the 76th minute. Johnny Russell's free kick from just outside the area was parried by goalkeeper Daniel Vega, but Smith, a 23-year-old defender in his ninth MLS appearance, first-timed a side-footer into a wide-open net.

Sporting KC (8-11-7) snapped a two-game skid and won for just the second time in their last six games.

Chris Wondolowski gave San Jose a 1-0 lead in the 25th, heading a corner kick by Cristian Espinoza off the far post and into the net. The 36-year-old Wondolowski has an MLS-record 154 career goals, scoring at least 10 goals in 10 consecutive seasons.

Feilhaber first-timed a half-volley between a trio of defenders from the top of the box to tie it in the 50th minute.

San Jose (11-9-5) is winless, with back-to-back losses, in its last three games following a four-game winning streak.
