KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Dom Dwyer scored twice and Sporting Kansas City held the Seattle Sounders without a shot until the 88th minute in a 3-0 victory on Sunday.

Dwyer, charging to the top of the 6-yard box, headed home a cross by Roger Espinosa in the 21st minute.

Jacob Peterson, from just inside top of the box, hammered a feed from Saad Abdul-Salaam past the out-stretched arms of goalkeeper Stefan Frei and into the top-left corner just before halftime.

Dwyer scored his 10th goal of the season, fifth-best total in MLS, in the 79th minute.

Sporting (9-10-4) snapped a two-game losing streak.

Seattle (6-12-2) has lost five of its last seven matches, including four shutouts.
