Last Time Out

San Diego Wave FC fell to the Kansas City Current (2-0-0, 6 points) at Snapdragon Stadium on Saturday night. The Wave hosted 32,066 fans in the club’s home opener, setting a new NWSL home opener attendance.

Wave FC midfielder Sofia Jakobsson opened the scoring in the 18th minute, recording her first goal of 2024 and her fourth NWSL career goal. The Current equalized just before halftime with a goal from defender Isabel Rodriguez in the 44th minute. The game-winner for Kansas City was a penalty kick taken by captain Lo’eau LaBonta, who stepped up to the spot and buried it in the 70th minute. Despite outshooting Kansas City 19-14, including a 5-3 advantage in shots on target, and winning the possession battle (66-34), the Wave would be unable to find a late equalizer.

The Seattle Reign (1-1-0, 3 points) are coming off a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Red Stars.
