KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kevin Molino scored twice in the first half and Minnesota United advanced to the MLS Western Conference finals, beating Sporting Kansas City 3-0 on Thursday night.

Fourth-seeded Minnesota will play at No. 2 seed Seattle next Monday for a spot in the MLS Cup finals.

Bakaye Dibassy also scored, and Emanuel Reynoso assisted on all three goals. Molino opened the scoring in the 27th minute with a run up the left side to finish a feed from Reynoso. 

Eight minutes later, Molino wrapped his right foot around Reynoso’s chip pass with just enough pace to get it past goalkeeper Tim Melia. Dibassy made it 3-0 with a header to finish Reynoso’s corner in the 39th minute.
