When Teal Bunbury fell to a season-ending injury back in August, supporters and media wondered how big a dent the loss of Sporting Kansas City’s top striking choice would make in the team’s playoff chances.

The answer, of course, was all down to the Sporting Kansas City’s other forward. More specifically, could C.J. Sapong reliably fill the void as SKC’s central striker, and could Kei Kamara keep doing his part, helping to mitigate the impact of Bunbury’s season-ending injury?

Last night, as Sporting Kansas City sealed the deal in the East, capturing their second consecutive conference championship, Sapong hit his ninth goal this year while Kamara contributed two assists.

Jacob Peterson had the other Sporting Kansas City goal, so his healthy return to the lineup lately has been helpful, too.

Kamara, by the way, has 11 goals and 8 assists, which makes it his best season yet. Here are last night’s highlights of SKC’s 2-1 win at PPL Park outside Philadelphia.

    It’s worth noting that two of Kei’s goals came from the penalty spot–which means CJ has matched Kei for goals from the run of play despite splitting time with Teal for much of the season.

    That’s an impressive avoidance of the sophomore slump.
