In a playoff showdown, St. Louis SC’s Cinderella season came to a halt as Sporting Kansas City triumphed to advance.

In the world of Major League Soccer, it’s the tale of two teams from neighboring cities that couldn’t be more different. St. Louis SC, the new MLS expansion team, embarked on a remarkable journey that shattered all expectations during its inaugural season. The team dominated the Western Conference, holding the top position for months and sealing the conference title with weeks to spare.

On the flip side, Sporting Kansas City experienced a challenging season, going without a win for over two months. Their journey to the playoffs was marred by more losses than victories, and their path seemed far from promising.

As the MLS playoffs unfolded, these two teams found themselves on a collision course in a best-of-three playoff series. The first clash took place on Sunday, October 29, resulting in a decisive 4-1 victory for Sporting Kansas City. The tension continued into the next match, which was a do-or-die encounter, and yet again, St. Louis SC faced defeat, with a final score of 2-1. This unfortunate outcome marked the premature end of what many had deemed a Cinderella season for St. Louis SC.

In contrast, Sporting Kansas City’s resilience and determination paid off as they clinched their ticket to Round 2 of the 2023 MLS Cup Playoffs. The two neighboring cities witnessed the stark difference in the fates of their respective teams, leaving fans and pundits alike captivated by the unpredictable nature of the beautiful game.
