Following a 2-0 road win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday, Sporting Kansas City (4-1-0, 12 points) is back atop the MLS Supporters’ Shield standings heading into Week 7 of the regular season. The club will meet two Western Conference opponents this week, beginning Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. CT when the Colorado Rapids (2-2-1, 7 points) visit Children’s Mercy Park for Sporting KC’s highly anticipated 20th Anniversary Night, presented by Ivy Funds.
