Red cards and drama were the key story in this one.

FC Dallas crashed out of the 2017 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup on Tuesday night to Sporting Kansas City 3-0. The game saw three goals scored in overtime as well as three red cards issued out.

The game had plenty of drama throughout including a goal line clearance and a red card 15 minutes into the match.

Ryan Hollingshead kept the match scoreless in the 14th minute as Sporting’s Diego Rubio and Gerso Fernandes would combine inside the penalty area. Fernandes worked his way around goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez, who had come off his line. Fernandes fired an off-balance shot towards an open net that Hollingshead cleared off the line, saving a goal.

A minute later Seth Sinovic was shown a straight red card on an FCD counter attack. Michael Barrios received a ball on a counter attack, just across the center line without a Sporting defender back when Sinovic committed the foul and was ejected for denial of a goal scoring opportunity, as Barrios would’ve been one-on-one with Tim Melia.

The two sides traded changes from then on in the first half with neither one getting a good look on goal. The first half ended with another pair of rough fouls that could have resulted in more red cards.

The second half saw both teams push for goals again but the score would remain deadlocked at zero after 90 minutes.

In the first frame of the extra time period Maxi Urruti was issued a second yellow card for a failed bicycle attempt in the penalty area where his boot hit Ike Opara.

Sporting would strike first in stoppage-time of the first extra frame as Latif Blessing found himself on the end of a ball from Benny Feilhaber on a counter. The forward slid a shot past Gonzalez to make it 1-0.

Two minutes later Javier Morales was sent off to put Dallas down to nine men. Sporting then added another from Blessing to double their lead.

In the second extra time, Sporting picked up a third goal from Daniel Salloi.

Dallas will return to action in MLS play next weekend when they travel to Montreal.
