KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – Omar Bravo scored on a header in the third minute of second-half stoppage time, lifting Sporting Kansas City to a 1-1 draw with Chivas USA on Saturday night.

Kansas City (5-6-7) extended its unbeaten streak to 4-0-6 since a loss at Seattle on May 21.

Nick LaBrocca gave Chivas (5-7-7) the lead in the 30th minute when he split the defense, took a through ball from Justin Braun and slotted a low shot past Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen into the lower left corner. It was LaBrocca’s third goal in three games.

Bravo’s equalizer, off a deflection by teammate Kei Kamara, capped a furious second half of offensive pressure for Kansas City, which improved to 2-0-3 at Sporting Livestrong Park.
