The Chicago Red Stars scored three goals in 15 minutes as they topped the North Carolina Courage 3-1 in front of 4,786 fans at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina.

It’s North Carolina’s second straight 3-1 loss, after starting the season 4-0-0.

Red Stars forward Christen Press got Chicago on the board first, converting a penalty kick in the 30th minute for her second goal of the year. Press drew drew the foul to set up the PK after Courage goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo dove to stop an onrushing Press, but missed the ball and made contact with the striker in the penalty area.

Midfielder Sofia Huerta scored a beautiful right-footed curling shot off an assist from Press in the 37th minute to make it 2-0, her first goal of the year. Midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo made it 3-0 in the 45th minute, collecting a loose ball in the box and sending it past D’Angelo. The score was DiBernardo’s first of 2017.

Chicago goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher made four saves in the match, her best effort coming in the 58th minute  as she pushed a quick shot from Debinha around the post and out of bounds.

Forward Lynn Williams put North Carolina on the board in the 55th minute, her second tally of the season, but the Courage couldn’t pull any closer.

DiBernardo left the match in the 69th minute with an apparent ankle injury.

Courage forward Jessica McDonald, who recently broke the NWSL regular season scoring record, played the first half at right back. Courage defender Abby Erceg was suspended for the game after being red carded in last week’s loss to Orlando.
