Across State Lines: Groom Continues to Impress

New, 1 comment

An update on former Kansas City players.

OL Reign v Houston Dash

The NWSL Challenge Cup continues in suburban Salt Lake City this past week with every team now having played two to three games. One of the players that has been impressive for their team in the tournament so far is Kansas City native Shea Groom. Groom was acquired by the Houston Dash in February of this year from Reign FC (now OL Reign). It was her third team in the three years since FC Kansas City had their franchise rights purchased and the team moved to Utah. In the 2018 and 2019 seasons with Sky Blue FC and Reign FC, Groom scored just two goals a piece. For the Dash though Groom has had a good start to the Challenge Cup as she scored in their opener against the Utah Royals and continued that good run of form in the club’s second game, recording an assist on the Dash’s first goal and scoring the second as they topped OL Reign 2-0 in their second game of the tournament.

Elsewhere this week, two KC natives, Steven Enna and Kyle McLagan both scored in losing efforts for their clubs in the Danish First Division (the country’s second division). Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
