Alex Morgan scored off a free kick from Marta in the 87th minute, the game-winning goal as the Pride won 2-1 on the road vs. FC Kansas City in front of a crowd of 2,812 at Children’s Mercy Victory Field in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Pride (9-6-5, 32 points) extended their winning streak to four games with the victory. They remain tied on points with the Red Stars for third place, but hold the fourth playoff spot because the first tie-breaker is the head-to-head record between the two teams.

The loss snapped a three game winning streak for FC Kansas City (6-9-5, 23 points), and drops them to nine points out of the fourth and final playoff spot.

Morgan has now scored in five straight games and has eight goals in her last seven games. It’s the sixth assist of the season for Marta, second best in the league.

Camila was fouled on the right wing to set up the set piece. Marta sent the free kick right to Morgan at the near post. Morgan jumped and flicked it with the outside of her left foot on goal. Her shot deflected off FC Kansas City goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart and into the back of the net to make it 2-1.

Pride forward Chioma Ubogagu opened the scoring for the Pride in the 16th minute, scoring on a loose ball after a FC Kansas City was unable to clear a corner kick sent into the box by Marta. 

FC Kansas City midfielder Lo’eau LaBonta, in her third NWSL season, scored her first NWSL goal in the 42nd minute for FC Kansas City. Shea Groom recorded her fifth assist of the season on the play, sending a bending ball into the box that LaBonta took one-time, sending a right-footed shot past Pride goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris to tie the score 1-1.

The Pride will next host the Boston Breakers on Saturday. FC Kansas City will welcome Sky Blue FC to town on Sunday.
