Seattle Reign FC scored in the 90th and 92nd minutes to come from behind for a 2-1 win over the Chicago Red Stars in front of a crowd of 2,876 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois on Wednesday night.

Reign forward Nahomi Kawasumi scored in the 90th minute and rookie forward Katie Johnson scored in the 92nd minute as the Reign turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 win in a span of two minutes.

The win vaults the Reign back into fourth place with 27 points (7-5-6 record), one point ahead of the Orlando Pride, with both teams having now played the same number of games.

It’s only the second time in NWSL history that a team has come back to win a game after trailing in the 90th minute or later. The Orlando Pride achieved the feat last July vs. the Boston Breakers when Kristen Edmonds scored in the 90th and 94th minutes.

Chicago Red Stars forward Jen Hoy opened the scoring in the game, giving the home side the 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute. After some nice dribbling on the right side near the top of the 18, Red Stars midfielder Taylor Comeau served a high cross to the left side of the box. Hoy beat her defender and headed it past Reign goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer for her first goal of the season.

The Red Stars had a number of chances to double the lead in the second half, but were thwarted by Kopmeyer and the post.

In the 66th minute, a Sofia Huerta shot from distance forced a diving save from Kopmeyer. Vanessa DiBernardo chased down the rebound, passing it back to Huerta for another chance, but Huerta’s shot went off the far post. DiBernardo had a shot of her own in the 67th minute, also saved by Kopmeyer.

Then in the 70th minute, Kopmeyer stopped a point-blank header by Morgan Proffitt following a Red Stars corner kick.

Then in the 90th minute, Seattle would finally get on the board.

Reign midfielder Rumi Utsugi intercepted an attempted Red Stars clearance and passed it into the box as Kawasumi made a darting run into the area. Kawasumi dribbled to the top of the 6-yard box and then cut the ball back, making her defender fall, before firing a right-footed shot past two Red Stars defenders and goalkeeper Michelle Dalton to level the match.

Two minutes later, the Reign would grab the win. Midfielder Jess Fishlock played a long ball over the top as Johnson made a run. Johnson brought the high ball down with one touch, letting it fall into the path in front of her, and with her next touch, slotted it past Dalton to the near post for the game-winner.

Dalton started in place of Alyssa Naeher, who had yet to miss a minute this season, but was listed on the injury report as questionable with a right groin strain.

With the loss, the Red Stars fall to 8-5-5 and remain in third place with 29 points.
