KANSAS CITY — Sporting Kansas City used a stoppage-time goal to draw with the San Jose Earthquakes 1-1 in a contentious match Wednesday night at Children’s Mercy Park.
A total of 35 fouls were called in the match. Five yellow cards and one red card were issued.
San Jose scored in the 53rd minute when Nathan Cardoso found the corner of the net on a header from the left side of the six-yard box following a corner.
Sporting appeared to have a golden chance to tie it when they were awarded a penalty kick in the 87th minute, but VAR overturned the ruling.
But Daniel Salloi knotted it in the fourth extra minute-of nine minutes of stoppage time-on a rebound off a free kick by Johnny Russell. Russell’s shot caromed off the top of the goal to a trio of Sporting players and Salloi netted it.
Sporting remained unbeaten at home (5-0-3). SKC has an MLS-best 17 points when trailing at any point in the match. The next best total is Nashville with eight points.
San Jose finished a rough three-game road stretch against teams above the red line in the Western Conference with three points on three draws.
Sporting Kansas City (8-3-3, 27 points) was playing without manager Peter Vermes, who missed the match as a result of “MLS safety protocols,” as well as several key players.
Midfielder Felipe Hernandez is away from the team for personal reasons. Sporting also was without striker Alan Pulido, who was with the Mexican national team competing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, and midfielder Gianluca Busio, who was on the American squad.
San Jose (3-7-4, 13 points) was without midfielders Jackson Yueill and Cade Cowell, who are both on the USMNT roster. Related Articles

Sporting struggled to find its form early, playing like a squad with four replacement starters. San Jose earned four consecutive corners in the first 15 minutes.
But eventually Sporting jelled and finished the scoreless first half with an advantage in possession (52 percent to 48 percent) shots (8-4) and shots on goal (5-0).

San Jose: Three arrested in shooting and beating of man in Alviso
SAN JOSE — Three people have been arrested over the past month in connection with a December attack in which they allegedly shot then beat a man in Alviso in broad daylight, and also wounded a bystander, according to San Jose police.
The shooting and assault were reported just after 1 p.m. on Dec. 21 on Trinity Park Drive, near Alviso Park. An investigation found that three men got out of a car and approached another man, and that one of the men from the car pulled out a gun and began shooting.
The lone man was hit several times, police said, but he also had a gun and shot back at his attackers. He tried to run away to an adjacent field but collapsed from his injuries, after which the trio proceeded to beat him while he was on the ground.
Responding police officers also discovered that a woman in the area was hit by a bullet from the shootout.
The man who was shot multiple times was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. The woman who was hit did not suffer any critical injuries.
Witnesses reported seeing the three men leave the area in a black Audi vehicle.
Detectives from the San Jose Police Department’s assaults unit identified Isaac and Ezau Martinez, ages 25 and 21, as suspects in the shooting. On June 22, the U.S. Marshals Service formally arrested the pair in Chandler, Arizona.
Police said Ezau Martinez has since been extradited to Santa Clara County, but that Isaac Martinez was in jail on unrelated charges in Maricopa County, Arizona, and is still awaiting extradition to the Bay Area.
The third suspect, 19-year-old San Jose resident Angel Gomez, was arrested Wednesday by San Jose police in the city.
Anyone with information about the December shooting can contact SJPD assaults Detective Kyle Dorris at 408-277-4161 or leave a tip with Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at 408-947-7867 or at svcrimestoppers.org.
