Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson made two saves against C.J. Sapong in the 91st minute to preserve the draw.

In the 34th minute, Dom Dwyer took the ball from Patrick Yanni at the top of the box, deked Johnson with a head fake to the right scored with a left-foot shot to give Kansas City (7-5-5) the lead. The goal was Dywer's 12th of the season, two behind New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips for the MLS lead

Chicago is 2-4-10.
