BEST MOMENT OF SPORTING KC'S SEASON 

Benny Feilhaber's long-distance goal against Colorado

Critics' Choice

Entering the 2013 Major League Soccer season, Sporting KC was regarded by many as a favorite to win the championship. The team hasn't always played like a contender, though. During an August 23 road trip to Chicago, the players looked like a band of 11 sloths on the field en route to their third loss in four games. The next week, they had to face a Colorado Rapids team that was unbeaten in its last nine games at Sporting Park. Sporting KC had Colorado on its heels for most of the game. Midfielder Benny Feilhaber, a hyped-up signing from New England who hadn't impressed early in the season, took a brilliant shot from 30 yards out that sailed past Colorado goalie Clint Irwin into the net. It was a spectacular strike that lathered restless Sporting fans into a frenzy and seemed to put some confidence back in the team on its way to a victory.
