Chicago Red Stars 2, Portland Thorns 3: Woman of the Match

Finding the bright spots in an otherwise dismal night

There’s no two ways around it— tonight was awful. The Red Stars’ usually stalwart defense utterly collapsed and Portland ran roughshod over us in our own home. This was embarrassing. The team will no doubt have some tough questions to answer in the days ahead. We’re going to go with Sofia Huerta as our WOTM; her first-half goal gave the Red Stars an equalizer and, all too briefly, hope.

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.)
