KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Matt Hedges scored a late goal and then made a clutch goal-line clearance in second-half stoppage time, giving unbeaten FC Dallas a 1-1 draw against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.

Aurelien Collin put Sporting up 1-0 in the 81st minute, heading in Benny Feilhaber's corner kick. It was the first goal of the year for the defending MLS Cup champions (0-1-1).

But in the 90th minute, after Uri Rosell's foul gave the visitors a restart 25 yards from goal, Hedges ran onto Michel's free kick and headed it past Eric Kronberg to equalize for FC Dallas (1-0-1). It was the second goal this year given up by Sporting after the 89th minute.

Hedges preserved the draw in stoppage time, clearing a hard shot by rookie midfielder Alex Martinez.
