Sporting's advantage was doubled in the 33rd minute following Doneil Henry's foul on Dwyer in the box, which allowed the 24-year-old to add to his season scoring haul by firing a shot past Joe Bendik from the spot.

But the hosts made sure of the victory by scoring two second-half goals in the span of 13 minutes.

Soony Saad restored Sporting's two-goal lead in the 64th minute by rifling home a shot from distance while C.J. Sapong made it four in the 77th minute by getting on the end of Saad's flick and directing a the ball into the back of the net from close range.
