CARSON, California — Omar Gonzalez scored in stoppage time and the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied to beat Sporting KC 2-1 on Saturday night.

Los Angeles (3-2-2) won its second straight game, while Sporting KC (2-2-3) had its four-game undefeated streak snapped.

Gonzalez redirected Juninho's corner kick with his right shin in the fourth minute of extra time and it deflected off a defender's knee into the back of the net.

The Galaxy's Baggio Husidic opened the scoring in the ninth minute. Sporting goalkeeper Luis Marin spilled Stefan Ishizaki's shot and an unmarked Husidic was at the far post for an easy tap in.

Krisztian Nemeth tied it in the 22nd minute for Sporting KC. Dominic Dwyer ran down a deep ball in the corner and drew three defenders when he dribbled into the 18-yard box. He found Benny Feilhaber at the penalty spot, who one-touched it to Nemeth for the finish.

Gyasi Zardes, who played in the U.S. national team's exhibition game against Mexico on Wednesday night, entered the match in the 69th minute.
