The Red Bulls' U.S. Open Cup title chances slipped away as Sporting KC walked away with a 2-1 victory in the final game on Wednesday night.
Off a pass from Graham Zusi, Latif Blessing netted Sporting KC's first goal in the middle of the box in the 25th minute of the contest. KC added a second goal in the 75th minute off the foot of Dániel Sallói.
Bradley Wright-Phillips scored for the Red Bulls in stoppage time, but it was not enough to get the score even.
The Red Bulls get back to their regular-season schedule when they head to Columbus to take on the Crew on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
