The match featured the first NWSL goal for Red Stars defender Tatumn Milazzo, who absolutely smashed a rebound into the right upper 90 from 25 yards out.
Reign’s Jess Fishlock and Rose Lavelle also crushed goals from outside the box. The win officially punched the Reign’s postseason ticket.
Here’s the good news for Chicago—they finish with two of the final three at home, and all three opponents currently sitting outside the playoff picture. Wednesday they host Orlando (8th place, 28 points). Then it’s home again against Kansas City (10th place, 12 points), before traveling to Exploria Stadium to face Orlando. There’s a logjam from 3rd through 8th, so the Red Stars can land anywhere in that pack with three solid performances to close the regular season.
