KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Krisztian Nemeth scored his second goal 22 seconds into the second half and Sporting Kansas City beat the New England Revolution 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Sporting KC (4-2-5) had not played since May 9 because its match against Colorado was postponed last weekend. New England (5-3-4) had its nine-game undefeated streak snapped.

The game swung when Sporting KC scored three first-half goals in 14 minutes.

Dominic Dwyer tied it at 1 in the 29th minute by rolling in a left-footed shot after settling a cross with his chest. Nemeth's glancing header of Benny Feilhaber's free kick gave Sporting KC a 2-1 lead in the 39th. Four minutes later, Feilhaber converted a penalty kick after New England was whistled for a questionable foul in the penalty area.

Nemeth made it 4-1 in the opening minute of the second half. Jacob Peterson hustled to win a ball deep in New England territory and fed a cross to an unmarked Nemeth.

New England scored the first and last goals of the game. Juan Agudelo beat two defenders and sent a shot past the oncoming goalkeeper in the 11th minute. Scott Caldwell angled home Charlie Davies' back-pass in the 64th.
