OL Reign put on a dominant show as they clinched 2nd seed amidst Kansas City’s metamorphosis into Kansas City Current. Tacoma Defiance put on their own quality performance, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a late-season slide to reach the playoffs. In case you’d forgotten about Concacaf Champions League, Monterrey won their fifth when they beat Club America 1-0.
