The league-leading Earthquakes (12-7-2) opened the scoring in the 25th minute.

Five minutes later, Kansas City forward Stephen Armstrong took Chris Klein's pass just outside the penalty box and kicked the ball past Cannon.

Kansas City (7-6-7) handed the Earthquakes their fourth straight road loss.
