KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Benny Feilhaber scored and assisted on Jacob Peterson's goal in Sporting Kansas City's 2-0 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.

Peterson redirected a shot by Nuno Coelho — off a corner by Feilhaber — into the net from the center of the 6-yard box in the 39th minute.

After Peterson drew a foul on Fraser Aird, Feilhaber's first penalty kick was stopped, but goalkeeper David Ousted was called for being off his line. Feilhaber converted the retake to give Sporting (11-11-5) a 2-0 lead in the 64th.

Kansas City's Alec Kann had two saves for his second-career shutout in six starts.

The Whitecaps (8-12-6) have lost four games in a row and are winless in their last six.

Sporting snapped an 11-game road winless streak.
