With all of the five games during Week 10 complete, here’s a look at how the weekend shook out in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Houston Dash 2 Orlando Pride 0
Carli Lloyd and the Houston Dash avenged last week’s loss to the Pride with a 2-0 win in Orlando. Lloyd got her first goal of the 2017 NWSL season and forward Rachel Daly added her first since Week 1. Dash rookie goalkeeper Jane Campbell made her second career start and earned her first career shutout.
North Carolina Courage 1 Boston Breakers 0
The first-place Courage continued their 2017 dominance with a 1-0 win over the Breakers in Boston. Rookie forward Ashley Hatch scored her third career goal in her third straight start. Once again, the Courage were without injured strikers Lynn Williams and Jessica McDonald.
Washington Spirit 1 Portland Thorns FC 0
The Washington Spirit extended their unbeaten streak to three games with a 1-0 win over the Portland Thorns. Spirit forward Francisca Ordega scored her fourth goal of the season in the win.
Seattle Reign FC 1 FC Kansas City 1
Seattle defender Lauren Barnes, the reigning NWSL Defender of the Year, was issued a red card in the 4th minute for a foul on FC Kansas City forward Shea Groom. The Blues took a 1-0 lead on a Brittany Ratcliffe goal, but Nahomi Kawasumi tied the game for Seattle.
Chicago Red Stars 2 Sky Blue FC 1
Sky Blue FC got off to another hot start on the road — this time a 3rd minute goal from rookie midfielder Madison Tiernan, but couldn’t hold on in the second half as the Red Stars came from behind for a 2-1 win. Chicago’s two goals came in a span of four minutes in the second half thanks to Vanessa DiBernardo and Sofia Huerta.
