The Kansas City Current hosted Racing Louisville on Memorial Day at Children’s Mercy Park. The Current were in desperate need of 3 points after finding themselves in last place in the standings. The Current (0-1-4) had not won a match since April 24th and hadn’t won any regular season matches after having a successful Challenge Cup. Racing Louisville entered Monday’s match in fifth place in the standings and with a 2-2-1 record.
The good news for the Current entering the match is that the injury report looked better with players clearing COVID protocol and returning to availability.
The Current got off to a quick start when Victoria Pickett is taken down in the box by Louisville’s midfielder Rebecca Holloway leading to a PK in the 2nd minute of the game.
