Juice Boxes and Post Game Stats: Milestones from a Disappointing Night at Children’s Mercy Park



It was a disappointing end to the night at Children’s Mercy Park on Saturday night as Sporting KC conceded three goals in an eight minute stretch to go from leading 2-0 and looking quite comfortable while doing it, to down 3-2 and struggling to find the game. Peter Vermes adjusted the team coming into the game with injuries seeing him line KC up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Alan Pulido dropping into more of an attacking midfield role instead of the number nine position that fans have come to expect from the Mexican forward. Nemanja Radoja and Willy Agada both found the net for the first time this season, Radoja finding it for the first time in a Sporting uniform.

Here are the stats and milestones from Saturday night’s loss.

Tim Melia made his 237th appearance in league play for KC, tying him with Kerry Zavagnin for 5th all time on that list.
