Paulo Nagamura also scored for Kansas City in the first half, before Dwyer added his second of the game midway through the second half.

Sporting dominated possession from the get-go, controlling the ball in the middle of the field for the first quarter of an hour.

A 17th-minute long throw-in by Kansas’ Matt Besler evaded the Impact defenders and landed awkwardly in the penalty box. Troy Perkins made the initial save, but the ball rolled onto the arm of Warner, who was sprawled out on the goal line. Warner made two saves with his left arm before the referee pointed to the spot.

Dwyer’s penalty kick beat Perkins low for his team-leading fifth goal of the season.

Fire 5, Red Bulls 4 • In Harrison, N.J., Rookie midfielder Harry Shipp scored three goals, his first in Major League Soccer, to rally Chicago over New York. Shipp, who led Notre Dame to last year’s NCAA title, gave Chicago the lead in the fourth minute and then added goals in the 54th and 58th minutes to earn the Fire their first victory of the year.

D.C. United 1, Union 0 • In Chester, Pa., Chris Rolfe scored in the sixth minute to help D.C. United beat Philadelphia for its fourth victory of the season, one more than it had last year.

Rolfe has 50 career regular-season goals.

Whitecaps FC 1, Crew 0 • In Columbus, Ohio, Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted made two saves and assisted on the goal by Erik Hurtado and the Whitecaps defeated Columbus.
