Graham Zusi and Kei Kamara put the home side in control before the halftime break, while C.J. Sapong added a killer third just two minutes into the second half. The win pushed Sporting KC (2-0-0, 6 pts.) to the top of the Eastern Conference standings, while the Revs (0-2-0, 0 pts.) suffered their second consecutive road loss to the open the 2012 campaign. New England returns to Gillette Stadium for its home opener next weekend against the Portland Timbers.
