Huerta, McCaskill score as Red Stars and Sky Blue FC draw 1-1

The Red Stars are 2-1-2 and in second place in the NWSL

The Chicago Red Stars and Sky Blue FC played to a 1-1 draw on Saturday night at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois.

The Red Stars are now 2-1-2 and in second place in the NWSL. Sky Blue moved into eighth place with the draw and are now 0-2-1.

Chicago Red Stars midfielder Sofia Huerta kicked off the scoring in just the first minute, with a goal 44 seconds into the game. Huerta hit a right-footed cross that carried  to the far post and went over Sky Blue FC goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan to give the Red Stars a quick 1-0 lead.

 

It’s the fifth-fastest goal in NWSL history, and the second-fastest in Red Stars history. Alyssa Mautz scored at 40 seconds in 2013.

It’s Huerta’s second goal of the season, to go along with two assists.

Sky Blue FC lost their first two games of the season by the score of 1-0, and looked headed to a third straight loss by the same scoreline until late in the second half.

Sky Blue FC midfielder Savannah McCaskill scored her first NWSL goal to tie the match in the 78th minute. With McCaskill dribbling at the top of the box, Carli Lloyd made a slicing run to the left side of the area that drew several defenders. McCaskill then cut inside and took a shot into the open space. Her shot deflected off Taylor Comeau and into the back of the net.

 

Comeau started in place of Sam Johnson, who was a late scratch.

Alyssa Naeher made three saves in the game for the Red Stars, her best coming in the 62nd minute on an effort by Lloyd.

Sheridan made five saves for Sky Blue FC in the game, including a nifty kick save in the 25th minute that cleared the ball well out of danger.

It was an evenly matched draw, with the Red Stars barely grabbing the possession edge — 50.1% to 49.9% according to Opta. The Red Stars took six shots on goal, while Sky Blue FC had four.

The draw for Chicago comes in what will likely be their last game without 2017 NWSL MVP Sam Kerr, who returned from international duty on Saturday and was on the sideline for the Red Stars. The Red Stars next face the Spirit on the road on April 28.

It also came at the end of a stretch of three games in eight days, and the Red Stars picked up seven points in the three matches.

Sky Blue FC won’t play their next game until May 5, at home vs. the Houston Dash, as they have a bye in Week 5.
