Sa for clamorous insult to Seattle the defeat for 2 to 1 suffered against the girls of Kansas in the final of the NWSL seen the season dominated since the start, with only two losses suffered in the arc of the "regular season" and the foaming game expressed in field; but maybe it was just this excessive security (many supporters of the Reign claimed to have even basted the best team in the world), which led to the downfall of the girls in Seattle and has won over the modesty, which then modesty is not seen the quality of the team and their equally interesting game of Kansas girls. But here is the chronicle of the final act of the NWSL.

This final, considered by all the insiders as the most just final, for what has been seen during the season, has put in front of two teams with a very similar mentality, two teams that have in search of possession their best gift . The Seattle Reign depart favorites, strong superiority shown throughout the season and benefited from playing the final in front of their audience, in a Starfire Stadium (the stadium that hosted the Reign in the inaugural season of the NWSL, CenturyLink Field was not available ) practically all sold out. The first opportunity is for the Kansas City that, at 20 ', go close to the goal with a shot from outside the area of ​​Jenna Richmond coming out touching the post to the left of Hope Solo. Two minutes later the Kansas City took the lead: Holiday is good at managing the counterattack and serving Amy Rodriguez with a perfect timing ball, with Rodriguez coldly beating Hope Solo. The Seattle Reign react immediately, led by the usual Kim Little who at the 23 'forces Barnhart to kick foot on a shot from a tight angle. A few minutes later Kim Little puts in a perfect cross but Kawasumi misses incredibly, sending the ball head from close range. The Kansas City almost doubled the 36 'with the usual Amy Rodriguez, good at anticipating the defense of the Reign. In the second half the first chance was for the Reign, with Kim Little beating a free kick from the edge: the shot is very powerful but central and is blocked with confidence by Barnhart. The Kansas City are doubled at 55 ', with a sensational action by Lauren Holiday, who sows the panic in the penalty area eluding three defenders before serving a perfect assist for Rodriguez that bags in the slip. The Reigns try to react and in the last ten minutes they raise the pressure looking desperate for a goal to reopen the game, goals that reach the 84 ', with a shot from outside Megan Rapinoe who is rejected by the crossbar. Two minutes later, the Reign reopen the game with Rapinoe, a goal resulting from a confusing action following a corner. The Reign in the last few minutes try everything but the Kansas City can keep the advantage up to the triple whistle, taking home the title of champions of the NWSL 2014.

As a small consolation, many of the Seattle girls received several individual prizes for the disputed season, including Kim Little, the real surprise of this season, which won the title of top scorer and best player of the tournament.
