New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) -
Sporting Kansas City midfielder Benny Feilhaber was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 19 of the 2014 Major League Soccer season.
Feilhaber netted two goals and assisted on a third as he helped Sporting to a pair of 2-1 wins this past week.
On Wednesday against Columbus, Feilhaber set up the opening goal for C.J. Sapong in the 42nd minute with a corner kick before he tallied the winning goal in stoppage time by pouncing on a loose ball inside the penalty area and smashing a shot off the underside of the crossbar and into the net.

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Matt Besler and Graham Zusi were both drafted by Kansas City in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft. Both players have gone on to become MLS All- Stars and members of the United States national team. And now both are examples of the progress being made by MLS.
Over the weekend, Besler and Zusi signed Designated Player contracts to remain with Sporting Kansas City through the 2018 World Cup. Those moves are obviously important for a Sporting franchise that won the 2013 MLS Cup and should remain in the title picture for the foreseeable future after locking down two of its most important pieces.
