KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Current kept their undefeated season going Sunday, April 14, earning a 1-1 draw against defending NWSL Champion Gotham FC at Red Bull Stadium in New Jersey.

The Current (3-0-1) scored the first goal of the match early in the first half when forward Temwa Chawinga took a pass from fellow forward Bia Zaneratto and chipped it into the goal for a 1-0 lead.
