The 2017 regular season of the National Women’s Soccer League has come to a close.

FC Kansas City and the Houston Dash battled to a 1-1 draw, with plenty of chances on both sides. Each side had eight shots on goal, and both Jane Campbell of the Dash and Nicole Barnhart had plenty to do between the posts for their teams and picking up six saves each.

Maegan Kelly kicked off the scoring for the home team in the 9th minute, heading the ball to the far post off a feed from Desiree Scott on the wing.

But Rachel Daly and some lovely passing from her Houston Dash, including the assist from Kristie Mewis, earned the equalizer early into the second half.

After that, it was a battle of epic saves between Campbell and Barnhart.

Campbell was called upon first, to stop this shot from Sydney Leroux:

Then it was Barnhart’s turn in the last couple minutes of regulation, with a stop on Camille Levin:

Not to be outdone, Campbell had to come up with one last major save in stoppage time – this time against Brittany Ratcliffe – to earn the point and close out her rookie season.

Both clubs will have some questions to answer in the offseason about their head coaches, as FC Kansas City’s Vlatko Andonovki’s contract expired at the end of the regular season, and the Dash’s Omar Morales has come to the end of his tenure as interim head coach.

FC Kansas City wraps up the season in seventh place with 30 points, and a solid run of form to close out their season. The Houston Dash sit behind them in eighth place on 23 points.
