North Carolina Courage 1 | Chicago Red Stars 1
  • Red Stars forward Sam Kerr scored the first goal of the 2019 NWSL season in the 26th minute. The 2017 and 2018 Golden Boot winner wasted little time jumping into the lead in goals scored. The tally is the 60th of her NWSL career. Yuki Nagasato, who assisted on seven of Kerr’s goals in 2018, picked up the assist on Saturday’s tally.
  • Crystal Dunn tied the match for the Courage in the 66th minute on a Jessica McDonald long throw in.
  • Alyssa Naeher made five saves in the match.
  • Kerr had a shot go off the crossbar and nearly cross the line in the game’s final moments.
