A look back on just a few of the many Week 4 highlights.


1. Perfect North Carolina

North Carolina became the second team in NWSL history to start the season with four straight wins. Through four games, goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo, defender Abby Dahlkemper and the rest of the North Carolina defense has only allowed one goal and seven shots on goal.



Despite the hot start, the Courage still have a long way to go to catch the 2014 Seattle Reign, who won their first seven games and were unbeaten in their first 16 games.

2. Jessica McDonald’s 33rd goal


Jessica McDonald scored her 33rd regular season goal, passing former Seattle Reign FC midfielder Kim Little for the most in NWSL history.


3. Men in Blazers loves the North Carolina Courage


Following North Carolina’s fourth-straight win, Roger Bennett sported a Courage jersey Sunday night on Men in Blazers.


4. Seven goals, Francisca Ordega’s Player of the Week performance and a 94th minute stellar save — in one game

It’s only Week 4 and we already have a favorite for game of the season. Take a look back at all the top moments from the Washington/Sky Blue FC thriller.

5. More great saves

In a season already filled with great goalkeeping, Week 4 continued that streak. Highlights included: Stephanie Labbé’s 94th minute save and a memorable Ashlyn Harris save vs. Sydney Leroux.

Even Leroux was impressed by Harris’ save.

6. Cascadia Classic

An early goal and a late goal highlighted another great meeting between Pacific Northwest rivals Portland and Seattle. Jess Fishlock scored the 5th fastest goal in NWSL history, but it wasn’t enough to give the Reign a road win as Allie Long equalized in the 82nd minute. Long’s goal is one of five result-changing goal to come after the 80th minute through the first four weeks of the season.

Fishlock’s stunner earned her Goal of the Week honors.


7. Danica Evans’ flip-throw

Yes, Kansas City vs. Orlando featured Marta’s first NWSL goal and a late game-tying goal from Erika Tymrak, but it also featured the NWSL debut of Danica Evans’ flip-throw.
