KANSAS CITY, Kan., Aug. 7 (UPI) -- Mauro Rosales and Lamar Neagle scored only seconds apart in the 90th minute Saturday, rallying Seattle to a stunning 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City.

Sporting appeared to be a lock to extend its unbeaten streak to 15 games thanks to a 20th-minute goal from Kei Kamara, but Seattle (11-5-8) stormed back to steal a win.

Kansas City was playing a man short after captain Omar Bravo was sent off for a reckless challenge on Pat Noonan and the Sounders took advantage in the 90th minute with Rosales' equalizer on a low shot that found the bottom corner of the net.

Seattle surprisingly went ahead moments later when Neagle curled a loose ball through traffic and into the net.

The Sounders earned their 41st point of the season, good for third place in the Western Conference.

Sporting Kansas City (7-7-9) remained tied for third place in the East with 30 points.
