For the first time in seven years, Sporting Kansas City is in first place in the Major League Soccer standings!

Sporting KC faced off against the Columbus Crew Wednesday night at Livestrong Sporting Park.  The game was tied at 1, when in the 74th minute Crew defender Julius James headed in a Sporting throw-in, over the arms of their goal keeper!

The victory allowed Sporting KC to leap past Houston and take over first place in the eastern conference.
