A huge win against the league leaders in the last home game of the season with playoff qualification still on the line. Not a bad way to end your Sunday. The Red Stars had some familiar struggles but on balance this is the team we know and love. This was a huge win and they absolutely deserved it.

We’re going to name Yuki Nagasato as our WOTM. With the equalizing goal and an assist on Julie Ertz’ gamewinner, her impact on the game was undeniable. Here’s to more performances like this from her.

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.)
