So far so good, if you're a Sporting KC fan, as the Red Bulls have looked pretty good against the Philadelphia Union after 45 minutes of play. 

Dane Richards was able to put the Red Bulls ahead in the 8th minute of play with a header off a Jan Gunnar Solli cross. 

The goal was actually counted as an own goal against Philadelphia goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, as Richard's header hit the post and came back out before it deflected off of Mondragon's back and into goal. 

Here's to crossing our fingers in the second half that New York can hold on to their one goal lead.
