"Any time you go down in a game you have to start chasing the game and it changes a lot of things," said Red Stars coach Rory Games. "The entire second half was stretched and they're athletic so it makes it difficult."

In the 65th minute, Jones gave FC Kansas City a 2-0 advantage when she beat rookie goalie Taylor Vancil, who started because Erin McLeod is playing for the Canadian national team.

Inka Grings and Maribel Dominguez had scoring chances for the Red Stars but could not convert.
