The two California expansion sides each take home three points and top the standings. San Diego Wave sits in first place after an Alex Morgan goal lifts the Wave over North Carolina. An own goal from Kansas City gives Angel City the edge. Plus, Louisville climbs the standings to third place after a Lauren Milliet goal from Jess McDonald - her 28th career, league-leading assist - lifts Racing over Gotham FC.
