KANSAS CITY, Kan., Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Seattle FC used second-half goals by Sanna Nyassi and Alvaro Fernandez Saturday to secure a Major League Soccer playoff spot with a 2-1 win over Kansas City.

Davy Arnaud scored in the closing minutes with a penalty kick to account for the Wizards' goal.

Kansas City (9-12-6) would need to win its final three regular-season games and Colorado Rapids would have to lose its last two for the Wizards to reach post-season play.

Nyassi scored in the 66th minute when he knocked home a rebound for his second goal of the season.

Fernandez got his second goal of the season for Seattle (13-9-6) in the 78th minute.
