Kansas City Attack

The Kansas City Attack soccer team formed in 1991, shortly after the decline of the well-known team, Kansas City Comets. KC was a hotbed of soccer through the 80s and 90s, and when the Comets folded in 1991, the Atlanta Attack packed up and move to the midwest to take advantage of the open soccer city. 

Playing in the NPSL, a step down from the MISL that the Comets had played in, the Attack added Gino Schiraldi and Jim Schwab of Comets fame and had a strong first season.They would have a solid first year with 26 wins. 

For their second season, the Attack moved to Kemper Arena where they gained back a lot of the fan following of the Comets and had great attendance. The team was great, too. They would make it to the Finals of the NPSL in 1993 and defeat the Cleveland Crunch to claim the title.  

By the 1995-96 season, the team was even better and set a record by winning 18 games in a row and a total of 32 on the season. Surely a favorite to win the league title, the Attack were upended by Cleveland in the Finals. However, a year late in 1997 the Attack would get revenge beating the Crunch in the Finals. The Attack would later move to the resurrected MISL and survive until 2005.
