Kansas City Current News Release

KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City Current (5-0-3, 18 points, 1st place) will close out a very busy week in front of the home fans as the club faces the North Carolina Courage (4-4-0, 12 points, 6th place). This Sunday’s match will kick off at 5 p.m. CT with Anna Witte and Jordan Angeli bringing Kansas City fans the action on KMCI, 38 The Spot while Dave Borchardt and Jillian Carroll Letrinko deliver the call on 90.9 The Bridge. The match will also stream on NWSL+ with audio streams in English, Spanish and Portuguese on the KC Current App.

This match is the third in an eight-day span for the Current, having earned a pair of draws at Houston May 5 and at Seattle May 8.

Defender Regan Steigleder made her first start for the club in Wednesday’s match, playing the entire first half and helping to hold the Seattle defense to only three shots in the opening period.

The team was unable to find an equalizer down the stretch despite putting five shots on target down the stretch. The Courage have yet to earn a point on the road, losing the last four away from WakeMed Park.
