Orlando Pride 0, Red Stars 1: Woman of the Match

The Red Stars atone for their loss in Seattle by eking out 3pts in Orlando

Neither rain nor fatigue nor a punishing travel schedule will keep the Chicago Red Stars from their appointed route. Determined to get back on track following their tough 2-1 loss in Seattle on Wednesday, Chicago successfully repelled the Pride’s siege through 90 minutes. A successfully-converted penalty late in the second half helped lift the Red Stars over their hosts, giving them a win in the second round of this four-game road trip. We’re going to give our WOTM nod to Christen Press— not just for her PK, but for dragging her team into the game in the first half and consistently providing the goal threat for her side.
