The biggest game of the past week saw Sporting Kansas City face the streaking Chicago Fire with first place on the line, and the way Sporting KC controlled the match and defeated the Fire with so much on the line made them the easy pick for SBI MLS Team of the Week.
There were some outstanding team performances, such as the ones turned in by Real Salt Lake, the New York Red Bulls and Houston Dynamo, but none of those teams outplayed an opponent as strong as the Fire. Sporting KC showed why they are the top team in the East in shutting down a Fire side that had won seven of eight before last Friday's contest.
Sporting KC not only shut down red-hot Fire star Chris Rolfe, they contained Chicago's attack very well for much of the evening. Graham Zusi did the rest, scoring a pair of beautiful goals for the victory.
What did you think of Sporting KC's performance this week? Which team impressed you the most last weekend?
