Final: Reign FC 3, Kansas City 2, live thread

Welcome to Memorial Stadium where it’s a perfect evening. Reign FC (6-0) will look to stay perfect, as well, hosting third-place FC Kansas City (3-3-1). Seattle’s Megan Rapinoe will be out for a sixth straight game due to a foot injury.

The visiting Blues feature forward Amy Rodriguez (a Seattle player in 2013 who missed the season to start a family) and midfielder Lauren Holiday (the 2013 NWSL MVP).
