The Chicago Red Stars punched their ticket to the NWSL Championship with a gritty, 2-0 win over the Portland Thorns Sunday afternoon at Providence Park.
The Red Stars were propelled by goals from Katie Johnson and Sarah Woldmoe. Shortly after coming on for the injured Kealia Watt, Johnson beat Portland goalkeeper Bella Bixby with a blast to the near post upper 90. Woldmoe made it 2-0 with a 59th’s minute rocket from well outside the box.
Chicago will face the Washington Spirit for the title at Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. CT.
One win to go.
