COLLEGE STATION, Texas, April 6, 2011 - Rookie forward and former JMU men's soccer player CJ Sapong broke a 0-0 stalemate in the third minute of extra time to put Sporting Kansas City past the Houston Dynamo 1-0 in the semifinal qualifier of the U.S. Open Cup.
Sapong's goal came off an impressive curling right-footed shot into the upper right corner, just out of Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric's reach. The goal was born of a nice individual effort where Sapong dribbled through the middle of the Dynamo back line to get the winning shot off.
Sapong, who also scored less than two minutes into his professional debut in Sporting Kansas City's season opener last month, had entered to start the second half as a replacement for Designated Player Omar Bravo.
Sapong now has points in three of his four games played this season.
Kansas City will host the winner between the New England Revolution and D.C. United at a date and location to be determined for the right to enter the tournament field in the third round, scheduled to begin June 28.
Sapong's team returns to Major League Soccer action on April 16 when the team plays at Columbus.
