Seattle Reign FC and Chicago Red Stars draw 0-0
The game closed out Week 8 in the NWSL

Seattle Reign FC and the Chicago Red Stars tied 0-0 on Saturday night in Seattle to close out Week 8 in the NWSL. On a rainy night in Seattle, 3,597 fans came out to UW Medicine Pitch at Memorial Stadium to see the two teams in action.

The Reign sit in second place with a 4-1-2 record (14 pts). The Red Stars are in fifth place at 2-2-6 (12 pts).

The game featured two of the league’s most dangerous goal scorers in Seattle’s Megan Rapinoe and Chicago’s Sam Kerr, but it was the goalkeepers for each side that came up with big plays to keep the game scoreless.

 

In the 68th minute, Red Stars goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher tipped a Rapinoe shot headed for the back of the net over the bar.

 

In the 42nd minute, the Red Stars had a few opportunities on a Danielle Colaprico corner kick, but Reign goalkeeper Lydia Williams was able to collect it.

Early in the second half, Williams also caught a free kick from Sofia Huerta.

 

 

Julie Ertz started and played 75 minutes for the Red Stars as she works back from a right knee sprain that kept her out for the first few games of the season.

 

The Reign head to Houston on Wednesday night to take on the Dash. The Red Stars are next in action on Saturday at home vs. the Orlando Pride.
