Sporting KC were in control from the outset, holding nearly 80 percent of the possession and racking up 11 shots in the first half. Salloi’s 10th-minute strike ensured them a quick start, then Kortne Ford doubled the advantage with a header in the 37th minute.

The onslaught continued into the second half, as Salloi and Khiry Shelton struck for two goals in a three-minute span in the 53rd and 56th minutes. Hernandez rounded out the scoring with a pair of additional insurance goals – one in the 66th minute and another in the 81st.

The result ended Union Omaha’s Cinderella-esque run, which saw the third-division upstarts overcome MLS sides Minnesota United F.C other Chicago Fire F.C to reach the quarterfinals.
