Christen Press continued her hot streak with Angel City Saturday, leading the Los Angeles club to a 1-0 win over Kansas City.

The Current stifled the home side for most of the contest, keeping the match scoreless at the break.

A persistent Press, however, broke the deadlock in the 70th minute, charging at Kansas City’s backline. The veteran striker went to ground, battling with her defender before getting up and serving in a dangerous cross to force a Current own goal to put ACFC up 1-0.

Saturday’s own goal comes one week after Press’ first regular-season goal with Angel City.

The determined 1-0 victory is ACFC’s third of the regular season, lifting the club to second in the NWSL standings.
