Sporting Kansas City opened the second half of its summer schedule with a pair of victories last week, the second of which landed two players Major League Soccer team of the week honors.
After a 2-0 win against visiting FC Dallas on Sunday, midfielder Benny Feilhaber and defender Saad Abdul-Salaam were named to the MLS team of the week Monday.
Feilhaber assisted on the club’s first goal Sunday and then scored from the penalty dot to push the margin to 2-0 before halftime. Feilhaber drew the preceding penalty kick call.
Abdul-Salaam was credited with six tackles, seven interceptions and two chances created during the victory Sunday.
