(Update 7-15-18): The Red Stars issued the following update on the status of Arin Gilliland: “During the Red Stars home game on Saturday, July 14, Arin Gilliland left the match in the 38th minute and was immediately transferred by ambulance to the local hospital for evaluation of a cervical spine injury. Following the tests, all x-rays came back normal. At this time, she is currently resting and will be reevaluated by a team doctor.”

Sam Kerr scored in the 87th minute to give the Chicago Red Stars a 1-0 home victory over Seattle Reign FC on Saturday night at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois.

The Red Stars keep their playoff hunt alive with the win and improve to 7-4-7 and 28 points in fourth place. Seattle Reign FC hold on to second place in the league standings at 8-4-5 and 29 points. This was the Red Stars second-straight win, with their last three points also featuring a standout Kerr performance where the forward earned a hat trick in their 3-1 win over Sky Blue FC in Week 15.

Week 16 wasn’t much of a Kerr show until the 87th minute rolled around. Red Stars forward Yuki Nagasato played Kerr down the center and Kerr opened up her hips and placed the ball far right for the 1-0 lead.

In the first half neither side was able to find a breakthrough. In the 35th minute Chicago Red Stars defender Arin Gilliland went up for a challenge and was taken out of the game due to an injury which looked to be to her neck. The broadcast stated that Gilliland was taken to the hospital after she exited the match.

The start of the second half began with Seattle pressing, led by forward Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe combined on back-to-back opportunities for her side, yet neither proved to be the go-ahead.

Chicago was quick to respond to Seattle’s pressure and as time ticked away started to find their rhythm offensively. Kerr and Nagasato combined in the midfield and midfielder Morgan Brian had a close chance at the top of the box.

Seattle finished the game with 13 shots to Chicago’s 19. The Red Stars held a slightly higher passing accuracy at 77.0% to the Reign’s 76.2% and also had the better of the possession at 50.7% to the Reign’s 49.3%. Reign FC goalkeeper Michelle Betos earned five saves on the night and Chicago Red Stars goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher made three saves in the win. Naeher also picked up her sixth shutout this season.
