Orlando Pride 2 | Chicago Red Stars 3
  • Chicago Red Stars forward Sam Kerr scored a hat trick in her return from the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the Red Stars beat the Orlando Pride 3-2 on Sunday night at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Kerr leads the NWSL with nine goals, seven of which have come in her last three games. The Red Stars did not score in her international duty absence, and she has scored the last seven goals for the team.
  • With the result, the Red Stars are now in sixth place in the NWSL with 14 points and a 4-4-2 record. The Pride remain in eighth place with a 1-8-2 record and 5 points.
  • Kerr wasted no time finding the back of the net, scoring in the 7th minute. She got her second goal before the end of the first half, and her third in the 55th minute. Kerr finished the match with eight shots, seven on goal.
  • With the Pride pushing for an equalizing goal late, Kerr tried to chip Pride goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer, who was way up field trying to help the Orlando offense, from midfield — but Kopmeyer raced all the way back to make a last gasp stop on what would’ve been Kerr’s fourth goal of the game.
  • Pride forward Marta, also just returning from international duty, converted a penalty kick in the 79th minute that pulled Orlando to within a goal. Marta had a few exciting moments near the end of the match, but Orlando couldn’t find the equalizer. Camila, also playing in her first match after the World Cup, earned the penalty kick after being fouled in the box.
  • Pride forward Chioma Ubogagu scored Orlando’s first goal of the game. It’s her second goal in as many games.
