Christen Press scored in the 49th minute and it was all Chicago needed to beat Seattle as the Red Stars topped the Reign 1-0 on Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois, with 3,147 fans in attendance.

The Red Stars improved to to 5-2-1 with 16 points this season and have not lost since April 29. The Reign dropped to 3-2-3 with 12 points.

Midfielder Julie Ertz started the play that led to Press’ goal, sending a long ball into Huerta on the left side of the box. Huerta caught up to it near the endline and flicked it with the outside of her right foot to Press, who used her first touch to send a left-footed shot over Seattle goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer for the goal.

Press now has three goals and two assists through the first eight games of the season.

Kopmeyer made seven saves in the match, several outstanding, but it was not enough to keep Chicago off the board.

Reign rookie forward Katie Johnson earned her first NWSL start, getting the call in place of the injured Beverely Yanez, who suffered a right quad laceration last week. Defender Merritt Mathias returned as a late substitution after being suspended for the last three games.

New Red Stars signing Yuki Nagasato, who arrived in Chicago earlier this week, was not available for the match.
