Reign FC looks to continue late charge

[NWSL SCHEDULE: Week 15] Seattle Reign FC's improbable charge at a playoff spot takes to the road Saturday when it plays third-place FC Kansas City at Verizon Wireless Field.

Wins last week against Western New York and Washington extended the Reign's unbeaten run to six games -- the second best streak in the NWSL this season -- and moved it to within eight points of the Flash with six games to play.

Seattle is 4-0-2 after starting out 0-9-1, and it has outscored opponents 12-7 since getting both national stars Megan Rapinoe and Hope Solo in the lineup June 23.

It will have to continue its run on the road where it plays four of its last five games.
