Momentum can be elusive. Through much of April, Sporting Kansas City had it. Then, they lost it.
Did they get it back on Sunday with an emphatic 4-0 win over Chivas USA? Sure seems like it. Anytime you can get your leading scorer back on a good vein of form (Claudio Bieler had two goals), your best player back to dominating the pitch (Graham Zusi was the man of the match and MLS Player of the Week) and the defense back on track (Jimmy Nielsen earned his 38th shutout -- and it was by far his easiest) is a good game.
Now, will it carry over into a tricky tricky mid-week fixture against the second-worst (but still quite dangerous) team in the league, the Seattle Sounders?*
