Sorting out the good and the bad from tonight’s win

Hey, the losing streak is over! That’s... one of the few good things I can say about this game. Sometimes getting the points are all that matters. We can work through some of the ugly stuff later in the week. For now, we’ve won and kept pace in the playoff chase.

We’re going to name newcomer Kristie Mewis as our WOTM. Less than half an hour into her first start for Chicago, she scored a tidy goal against her old team to give the Red Stars the push-off they needed to get tonight’s result

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.)
