Dom Dwyer scored in the 80th minute for Sporting, tying the score at 1-all, but Maidana answered in the 81st with his game-winner.

Cruz scored in the 49th minute on a putback of Maidana’s saved shot.

Philadelphia had to play a man down in second-half stoppage time, after Corben Bone — who had entered the match only seconds earlier — was issued a straight red card for a serious foul on Sporting’s Jacob Peterson.
