Three Orlando players scored their first goals of the season as the Pride won 4-1 at home vs. FC Kansas City on Saturday night in front of 6,073 fans at Orlando City Stadium. Alex Morgan, Toni Pressley and Kristen Edmonds each made the scoresheet for the first time in 2017 as the Pride improved to 5-5-4 (19 points).

The win was the first at home since a 2-0 win over the Breakers on June 3 for the Pride, who had been shutout in back-to-back home games since that win.

In the 22nd minute, Marta earned the assist on the opening goal, her fourth assist of the season. Camila took a corner kick, played it short to Marta, who dribbled to the endline before crossing it around Kansas City defender Christina Gibbons, into the box and right to the head of Alanna Kennedy. The 5’11” midfielder knocked it in for her second goal of the season.

Orlando doubled the lead 15 minutes later. In the 37th minute, after a foul on the left wing on Steph Catley, Marta stepped up to take the free kick. As Marta’s effort went into the box, Morgan was taken down by defender Katie Bowen for a penalty kick.

Morgan stepped up to the penalty kick, sending it to low and to the right side of the goal for her first goal since returning from her stint with Lyon and recovery from a left hamstring strain.

FC Kansas City pulled to within a goal in the 65th minute as Maegen Kelly notched her second goal of the year, just two minutes after subbing into the match.

But defender Toni Pressley gave the Pride back their two goal lead in the 70th minute, with a bending left-footed shot from outside the box that beat Barnhart to the far post. The strike was the first goal of Pressley’s NWSL career. Camila, starting at right back rather than her usual midfield spot, earned the assist for her fourth of the season, to tie Marta for second-best in the league.

Kristen Edmonds, who subbed into the match in the second half, made it 4-1 in the 75th minute. Barnhart came out the box to make a clearance, but the ball bounced off Edmonds, who collected it and hit it into the wide open net for the game’s final goal. Edmonds, who didn’t start for the first time this season, entered the match in the 71st minute and scored four minutes later.

Morgan nearly got her second goal on a breakaway in the 83rd minute minute, but was denied by Barnhart, who came off her line to make the save.

Kansas City, playing without Shea Groom who was sent off last week, started Erika Tymrak at forward alongside Sydney Leroux in Groom’s absence. The Blues dropped to 3-7-4 with 13 points following the loss.
