KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Benny Feilhaber and Lawrence Olum scored either side of halftime as Sporting Kansas City defeated the Los Angeles 2-1 to extend its unbeaten streak to six games and end the Galaxy's eight-game unbeaten streak in Major League Soccer on Saturday.

Feilhaber opened the scoring in the 11th minute, drilling a free kick from just outside the box into the upper left corner past Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo.

Sporting made it 2-0 in the 60th minute after Graham Zusi's cross was headed by Jacob Peterson — which was blocked by Penedo — but the rebound came straight to Olum who headed it past a sprawled Penedo.

Robbie Keane cut the Galaxy deficit in the 79th minute with his 10th goal of the season off a corner.

Will Bruin opened the scoring for Houston in the 11th minute when he collected a poor back-pass from Toronto's Bradley Orr and scored into an open net.

At Frisco, Texas, Andres Escobar and Tesho Akindele both scored as Dallas dealt New England its seventh-consecutive loss, 2-0, while Sebastien Le Toux scored from a penalty in added time to give the Philadelphia Union a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire.
