KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KCTV) -- The Kansas City Current’s second season since moving here has been filled with history.

The club will appear in the playoffs this season after finishing in last place in 2021.

Kansas City’s turnaround came in no small part to what was a 13-game unbeaten streak that spanned nearly four full months on the calendar.

It was the Current’s final home regular season match. They wrap up the regular season Oct. 1 against Racing Louisville.

After Sunday’s win, the Current are back on top of the standings.
