North Carolina Courage escape FC Kansas City with a 1-0 win

Cindy Lara | No rain or extreme heat created any delays this time around as FC Kansas City and the North Carolina Courage took the field on a Thursday night to make up for the July 22nd NWSL matchup, which was suspended in the 39th minute due to severe weather in the KC area on that night. For 86 minutes, FC Kansas City frustrated the Courage with a strong defensive effort, even though the North Carolina side had the edge on shots, 28-6, causing shots to go wide or saved by veteran goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart, who entered the game with 41 saves inside the box. In the end, however, Lynn Williams scored her 5th goal of the season to give the Courage their 11th win of the season and allow them to take a four-point lead over second place Chicago Red Stars. Barnhart and Rowland Kept It Close In the first half, both goalkeepers were easily tested, and for the Courage's Katelyn Rowland, her first major save came in the 12th minute when a pass from New Zealand international Katie Bowen set up Maegan Kelly to take a shot outside the box. In the 16th minute, FC Kansas City again tried to get first on the board. This time, Brittany Taylor passed a through ball into the box where forward Sydney Leroux was making a run. The play forced Rowland to come off her line for the save.  Katelyn Rowland makes two crucial saves in the first half | Photo: Amy Kontras - ISI Photos Into the 26th...
