Seattle Reign FC and FC Kansas City traded goals in the game’s final ten minutes for a dramatic 2-2 draw in front of a crowd of 1,891 at Children’s Mercy Victory Field in Kansas City, Missouri.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the 81st minute, Reign forward Nahomi Kawasumi collected a pass from midfielder Christine Nairn on the left wing, cut around FCKC defender Brittany Taylor, then sent a right-footed shot past goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart to make it 2-1 for Seattle.

The Reign nearly had their first-ever win on the road over FC Kansas City, but it wasn’t to be as the Blues tied the match just three minutes later. Seattle was unable to clear a Yael Averbuch corner kick and the loose ball bounced back to Averbuch, whose cross into the box was headed in by Maegan Kelly, the first goal of her NWSL career, to tie the match.

Seattle nearly took the lead in the 74th minute but was thwarted by a strong defensive effort from Kansas City. Barnhart came off her line and made a save, but the rebound bounced back to the Reign, giving Seattle two open net chances that were saved by Averbuch and defender Becky Sauerbrunn.

FC Kansas City opened the scoring in the 23rd minute thanks to a goal from Alexa Newfield, her second of the season.

Newfield started the play that led to the goal, passing to Erika Tymrak as the midfielder made a slicing run to the left side of the box. Tymrak then chipped a pass back to Newfield, who headed it past Reign goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer to give FCKC the early lead.

Megan Rapinoe scored her fifth goal of the season in the 31st minute. Kawasumi notched her league-leading sixth assist on the goal.

Seattle forward Beverly Yanez made her return to the starting lineup after missing the Reign’s last game with a right quad laceration suffered in Week 7 vs. Houston.

The Reign were without midfielder Rumi Utsugi, who was hurt over the international break and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.
