One of the pillars of Kansas City's success is Hailie Mace's versatility in defense. Her ability to neutralize opponents and advance the ball creates great scoring opportunities. Mace is essential in both defense and attack, making her a vital piece for the team. She will need to test her skills against Mallory Swanson of the Red Stars. The forward has recovered from injury and is ready to make a significant impact against the Current's defense. Her presence in the attack poses a constant threat, and she is eager to exploit any defensive errors by the Current.

The Kansas City Current leads the league in several categories, including the most goals scored, with 31, and has 28 points. In contrast, the Chicago Red Stars are in sixth place with 16 points and have faced defensive struggles, as evidenced by their loss to Bay FC in the historic record-setting game at Wrigley Field. The team has conceded more goals than it has scored.

This matchup at CPKC Stadium promises to feature different dynamics, with the Kansas City Current looking to extend their unbeaten streak and the Chicago Red Stars aiming to improve their position in the standings.
