Rapinoe’s pair of penalties helps Reign FC to 2-1 win over Red Stars

Chicago's seven-game unbeaten streak comes to a midweek end

Alyssa Mautz and the Chicago Red Stars struck first at Memorial Stadium on Wednesday night, but Megan Rapinoe and Seattle Reign FC found a way in the second half to pull out the 2-1 victory at home.

Reign midfielder Christine Nairn nearly struck first in the 10th minute. Merritt Mathias carried the ball up the right wing before finding forward Nahomi Kawasumi near the end line. She found Nairn at the edge of the six-yard box, and Nairn was able to get just enough of a flick on the ball to try and redirect it past Chicago goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Naeher dove to her right and was able to palm it away for the save.

Mautz was in the right place at the right time in the 41st minute to get the Red Stars on the board first. She cleaned up a Julie Ertz cross into the box after a bit of a scramble from Seattle goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer and the Reign defense.

In the second half, however, it was the pair of penalties from Rapinoe that ultimately decided the game. The first one came after Chicago Red Stars midfielder Taylor Comeau conceded a hand ball in the box. Rapinoe converted with her right foot, and the Reign’s comeback was underway.

While Chicago might have accepted a point on the road in the middle of a difficult three-game stretch, Rapinoe’s second penalty in the 84th minute was a late blow. This time, Rapinoe drew her own penalty in the box from Chicago defender Casey Short.

There’s no rest for the Red Stars. They’re off to Orlando, to face the Pride on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. ET. Their new neighbors on the table, the now-third place Portland Thorns, will be the next to enter Memorial Stadium and hope to take down the Reign. The Thorns are now only two points behind Chicago with their eye firmly on the No. 2 spot. Seattle and Portland will kick off Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
