With a tough road trip in the rearview mirror, the Red Stars were keen to grab a win for their first game back home. Thanks to a pair of goals from Christen Press and some characteristically strong defending, they managed to pull it off. Chicago now heads into a quick international break with a bit of momentum and a renewed hunger with the final stretch in the playoff race looming. Unsurprisingly, Press is our pick for WOTM— he two goals sealed the win and her constant threat up top kept Orlando nervous throughout the game.
