Just Short of a 4-Peat, Sounders Fall in PK's

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Sporting Kansas City won the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday night, outlasting Seattle in a penalty shootout to derail the Sounders' bid to become the first team to win four straight titles.

Kansas City won the shootout 3-2 after the teams finished overtime tied 1-1.

Sporting converted three of five attempts, while the Sounders missed their last three.

Eddie Johnson's shot over the bar on Seattle's last attempt sealed Kansas City first Cup title since the then-Wizards won it in 2004.

Kei Kamara opened the scoring for Kansas City on a penalty kick in the 84th minute after Zach Scott was called for a handball in the area. Scott redeemed himself in the 86th with a header from 12 yards off Mauro Rosales' free kick.
