For the second straight week, FC Kansas City and Seattle Reign FC settled for a draw, this time a 1-1 result in Seattle’s Memorial Stadium. While the points were split, this week’s edition looked vastly different thanks to an early red card for Seattle stalwart defender Lauren Barnes. In the fourth minute, referee Ekaterina Koroleva sent off Barnes for a professional foul on Shea Groom.

With 3,919 on hand for the Reign’s Pride Night, the Reign move to 3-2-5 for the season and stay undefeated at home with a 2-0-3 through Week 10.

It only took FC Kansas City 12 minutes to capitalize on the player advantage and open the scoring. Yael Averbuch slotted a pass to midfielder Alexa Newfield, who opted for the flick right to the feet of forward Brittany Ratcliffe. Ratcliffe found the seam between Seattle’s Jessica Fishlock — covering for the ejected Barnes — and Kristen McNabb, and finished for the opening goal in the bottom right corner.

The teams each had a few more looks at goal throughout the rest of the first half, but beyond a pair of yellow cards assigned to FC Kansas City’s Groom and Newfield and the hydration break, the rest of the excitement would wait for the second half.

Groom emerged from the FC Kansas City locker room with a protective sleeve over her elbow, and kicked off the second half by nearly extending the Blues’ lead in the 49th minute. Reign midfielder Megan Rapinoe broke on the counter the other way, but Nicole Barnhart came up with a giant kick save in the 50th minute. In the 51st minute, Fishlock thought she had managed to score the equalizer off a Reign corner kick, but FCKC defender Brittany Taylor managed the last ditch clearance off the line.

After some sustained possession from Reign defender Rebekah Stott in FC Kansas City’s half, she linked to Carson Pickett, who found Megan Rapinoe on the left wing. In the 58th minute, Rapinoe sent a driven cross into the box. After Barnhart was forced to make a save on what was nearly an own goal from defender Becky Sauerbrunn, Reign forward Nahomi Kawasumi was in perfect position to clean up the rebound for the equalizer.

The goal was Kawasumi’s third of the season.

Both teams searched for a go-ahead goal. The best look came from FCKC substitute Erika Tymrak, who forced a save from Reign goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer in the 84th minute.

FC Kansas City will stay on the West Coast this week, as they head down to Portland to face the Thorns on Wednesday night at 10:00 p.m. ET.  Seattle will be without Lauren Barnes on the back line for the first time in 61 games on Wednesday, when they host the Chicago Red Stars at 10:30 p.m. ET.
