  • Fernandes scores 3 goals, Sporting KC beats Sounders

Gerso Fernandes scored a stunning second-half hat trick to lead Sporting Kansas City past defending MLS champions Seattle Sounders, as the Houston Dynamo were upstaged by the suddenly-hot Philadelphia Union on Wednesday night.

Melia kept it scoreless in the first half with two quality saves just before halftime.

The Sounders will have a tough task against Sporting KC, as they will be without their starting left back Joevin Jones due to suspension. After a lackluster opening half in which Sporting KC did not even attempt a shot, Fernandes beat Seattle keeper Stefan Frei three times from close range in the 56th, 58th and 69th minutes.

Fernandes tallied the first Sporting KC hat trick in seven seasons, the overwhelming force of the win against the Sounders that propelled Sporting back atop the Western Conference standings. "So when he came here, the thing that I said to him is I said that he's going to find himself in a lot of positions that he didn't find himself in on his old team, which is in front of the goal". "The team is helping me".

Even more impressively, it all came in a 13-minute span.

Fernandes on the improved effort after halftime: "Basically (coach) Peter (Vermes) had to scream at us in the locker room". The Sounders have scored one goal in their past six matches against SKC (6-2-4). He has 22 games left to set a new mark. He clicked the post and then gathered the rebound and pulled the trigger on a second shot for his next goal.

Minnesota United learned today that they will be taking on Sporting Kansas City in the fourth round of the 2017 U.S. Open Cup. Gerso was a little fortunate as deflections contributed to the first two goals but the third finished off some nifty work by Benny Feilhaber and Graham Zusi.

Seattle was content to slow the pace Wednesday, putting numbers behind the ball and awaiting the counter.

Regardless, Brian Schmetzer's team held there own in the first half, to go in at the break tied 0-0. Seattle will hope a return home will help right the ship, with their first opportunity to do so coming with a clash against Real Salt Lake at CenturyLink Field on Saturday afternoon.
