In their first game during the knockout stage, Sporting KC was impressive but they couldn’t put any goals in the back of the net. Sporting KC had 29 shots against the Vancouver Whitecaps with seven shots on target. None of those goals went into the back of the net though, so they had to get the job done during penalty kicks.
