A quick look back at all the action from Week 2 of the NWSL — and it was a very busy Week 2.
Five-time FIFA World Player of the Year Marta made her NWSL debut, coming on in the second half for the Orlando Pride. Washington’s Line Sigvardsen Jensen scored her first NWSL goal almost immediately after she entered, but the drama was only just beginning. Pride rookie Danica Evans tied the game in the 86th minute and Marta very nearly scored the game-winner in stoppage time.

The Reign won big over the Dash — 5-1 — with goals from five different players. Megan Rapinoe scored an impressive left-footed volley and Seattle added goals from Jess Fishlock, Kristen McNabb, Beverly Yanez and Katlyn Johnson.
Julie Ertz scored as the Red Stars controlled most of the match vs. FC Kansas City.
North Carolina improved to 2-0-0 as they won their first-ever home game. Midfielder Debinha scored her first NWSL goal.
