Reign FC’s unbeaten streak ends at six following 2-0 loss to FC Kansas City

reignfcReign FC’s impressive six-game unbeaten streak came to an end Saturday with a 2-0 road loss to FC Kansas City.

The loss dropped Seattle to 4-10-3 on the year and struck a heavy blow to what was always going to be a improbable road back into the playoff picture. The team hadn’t lost since June 23, going on a 4-0-2 run that coincided with the addition of U.S. national team star Megan Rapinoe.

Lauren Holiday scored her 10th goal of the season, tied for the NWSL lead with USWNT stars Abby Wambach (Western New York Flash) and Sydney Leroux (Boston Breakers). Erika Tymrak added a goal and assist as FCKC improved to 8-4-5.

Reign goalkeeper Hope Solo made four saves in defeat.

Seattle returns home Thursday for its second-to-last home game of the season against the Chicago Red Stars. Kickoff at Starfire Stadium is set for 7 p.m. and tickets are available on the team website.
