Peterson snatches draw for Sporting KC

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Jacob Peterson scored in the 78th minute, and Sporting Kansas City salvaged a 1-1 draw against Real Esteli in the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League on Tuesday night.

Peterson's equalizer came after a low corner kick to the near post from Graham Zusi. The substitute collected the ball near the goalmouth and put it between goalkeeper Justo Lorente's legs for his first goal of the year in any competition.

It was a rare lapse for Lorente, who finished with five saves for the Nicaraguan side. 

Real Esteli, which remained winless in 37 CONCACAF matches across all tournament formats, went up 1-0 in the 54th minute on Rudel Calero's header off Samuel Wilson's corner kick.

Sporting had several chances to win late, including Peterson's shot just outside the post in stoppage time after a poor clearance from Lorente.

Sporting still leads Group 2 with seven points through three matches. Kansas City closes out the group stage against Honduras' CD Olimpia on Oct. 23.
