C.J. Sapong broke a seven-match goal drought, and Kei Kamara scored his team-leading fifth goal and added an assist to help Sporting Kansas City beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 on Sunday.

Sporting (8-3-1) broke a four-match winless streak.

Simon Dawkins scored in the 72nd minute for San Jose (8-3-3),
cutting it to 2-1.

Kamara set up Sapong's fifth-minute goal with a long cross from the right flank, then made it 2-0 in the 39th when he headed home Michael Harrington's cross from the left side.

Harrington was a 23rd-minute substitute for left back Seth Sinovic, who fell over the end boards and sustained a cut on his left hand that required 20 stitches. Sinovic was already playing with his surgically repaired right hand in a cast.
