Kansas City, Kan. Claudio Bieler scored his third goal of the season, and Sporting Kansas City defeated previously unbeaten Montreal, 2-0, on Saturday night in a match that saw the ejection of Impact coach Marco Schaellibaum.
Schaellibaum was sent off in the 81st minute, shortly after Graham Zusi’s goal put Sporting up 2-0, and will miss the Impact’s home game against Columbus on April 13. Montreal lost for the first time after a 4-0 start.
Sporting (2-1-2) broke a three-match winless streak and a 197-minute goal drought, and Jimmy Nielsen recorded his third straight shutout. Benny Feilhaber recorded his first two assists of the season.
Bieler scored in the fifth minute and Zusi in the 80th.
