San Diego enters Saturday’s match following the club’s three consecutive wins and currently sitting first in the NWSL standings. The Wave’s last match was a 1-0 win over the Houston Dash on Sept. 3, as 18-year-old midfielder Jaedyn Shaw scored her eighth goal of the season. The game-winning goal came in the 57th minute after defender Christen Westphal sent a through ball from the backline to Shaw who fired it from the right side of the six-yard box and into the bottom left corner.
Saturday will mark the fourth overall matchup between San Diego and Kansas City with an even overall series record of 1-1-1. The Wave’s last meeting against Kansas City was on May 14, and marked the club’s first win over the Current. The 2-0 win on the road at Children Mercy’s Park had goals scored by forward Alex Morgan and midfielder Belle Briede, while goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan preserved the clean sheet. Morgan leads the series for both teams with three goals across three matches for San Diego.
