North Carolina Courage battle back for 1-1 draw with Utah Royals FC

The Courage have still never beaten Utah Royals FC

North Carolina Courage 1 | Utah Royals FC 1
  • The North Carolina Courage came from behind to tie 1-1 with Utah Royals FC on Sunday. Both teams were looking to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season last week. For the Courage, last week’s loss snapped a 15-game regular season unbeaten streak.
  • Utah Royals FC are still the only team to have never lost to the Courage, going 1-0-3 vs. North Carolina since joining the league last season.
  • Utah forward Amy Rodriguez scored in the 7th minute, the third straight game she has scored a goal. Vero Boquete assisted on the goal.
  • Elizabeth Eddy, assisted by Debinha, scored the game-tying goal in the 78th minute to keep the Courage from back-to-back losses for the first time since 2017.
