FC Kansas City suffers 3-2 loss to Washington

It was the stuff of a goalkeeper’s nightmares. The Washington Spirit sent shot after shot at FC Kansas City goalie Nicole Barnhart in the 58th minute, firing four from point-blank range before Joanna Lohman’s goal gave her team a 2-0 lead that would prove insurmountable for the Blues. With its 3-2 loss to Washington on Saturday at Swope Soccer Village, FCKC falls to 3-6-4.

NWSL players chase soccer dreams despite low pay

Many National Women’s Soccer League players subsist on salaries as low as $7,200 for a seven-month season. FC Kansas City’s Becky Sauerbrunn is leading the charge for equal pay at the national team level. But even if the national team can gain pay equality, many in the NWSL will still struggle to pay bills.
