It was ugly from the moment things got started.

FC Dallas has crashed out of the 2015 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup in possibly the worst possible way Wednesday night in a 6-2 loss to Sporting Kansas City.

SKC came out flying with a lot of energy in this one as they scored in the first five minutes of the match on a corner kick by Benny Fielhaber. The former United States national team midfielder sent in a lofty ball to the far post where Dom Dwyer was there to finish home the game's first goal.

Dwyer wasn't done at all after the first goal as he bagged his second goal in the 18th minute after Krisztian Nemeth picked up the ball in the Dallas defensive third. Nemeth found Jacob Peterson who would cross the ball into the box where Dwyer would finish home the goal by Chris Seitz.

As the first half drew to a close, Sporting would not only add a third goal but a fourth. In the 41st minute, Dwyer would be brought down in the penalty box by Moises Hernandez and he would get his hat trick by scoring the penalty kick. Minutes later in stoppage time, Nemeth would get his first goal of the match after finishing a nice passing sequence from Peterson and Fielhaber.

Sporting would continue to pile on the goals in the second half as Nemeth would earn his second of the night in the 59th minute.

Dallas would finally break up the scoring from Sporting in the 62nd minute with a goal from Michael Barrios. The Colombian would finish off a nice attempt off a give-and-go with David Texeira. Once Barrios got the ball back from Texeira, he would slot it past Sporting KC keeper Tim Melia.

Sporting would however get back on the offensive with their sixth and final goal of the night in the 69th minute from Dwyer. The Englishman sent a set piece chance into the back of the net with a curling shot from just outside the area that would hit off the crossbar and go in.

Dallas would get one more goal on the night as substitute Kellyn Acosta would score his first Dallas goal in the 73rd minute.

FCD is now out of the US Open Cup with the loss and will return to MLS action this weekend as they host New England.
