Russell, Shelton Score Late, Sporting KC Beats Galaxy 2-0

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Johnny Russell scored in the 81st minute and Khiry Shelton added a stoppage-time goal to help Sporting Kansas City beat the LA Galaxy 2-0. Russell had a hard left-footed shot saved, but it returned directly at him and he poked a high-arcing header into the left corner of the goal. Shelton scored on a breakaway for Sporting in the fifth minute of stoppage time after the Galaxy had pushed its numbers forward in search of a tying goal. Javier “Chicharito” Hernández was a late scratch for the Galaxy.
