They’re averaging 3.4 goals per game – and while that pace will be near-impossible to hold, it’s helped Kansas City open up an early lead in the race for the regular season title.

Kansas City have had more individual players score goals in the last month or so than 11 NWSL clubs have scored as a team this entire season.
