Portland 1, Red Stars 0: Woman of the Match

With a disappointing 1-0 loss at Portland in the books, we want you to rate the Red Stars’ players and choose your woman of the match.

It’s hard to look at today as anything but a missed opportunity. Portland showed some clear vulnerabilities in the back, and with Chicago getting some good build-up play together there’s no reason why the Red Stars shouldn’t have gotten something out of today’s game. But their finishing problems persist, and the gifted first half penalty was enough to hand Portland all three points. It’s a tough day, to be sure. We’re going to give our WOTM nod to Sam Johnson; in a back line that frequently seemed harried, Johnson was stalwart and composed.

Now let us know how you saw it. Vote for your choice for WOTM in the poll below. The poll will be open for two days, after which we’ll publicize the results. (Note: if you’re viewing this post from AMP or Apple News, you won’t see the poll below. Feel free to tell us your pick in the comments.)
