Sky Blue FC wins late over Orlando Pride, 2-1
Sky Blue FC is 3-0-0 at home

For the third straight home game, Sky Blue FC came away with a win thanks to a late-game winning goal — this time from forward Maya Hayes as Sky Blue beat the Orlando Pride 2-1 in front of 3,451 fans at Yurcak Field.

The Pride took the lead in the 18th minute on a goal from Jasmyne Spencer. Marta started the play at the top of the box and passed it back to Camila, who threaded it to Spencer for the score.

But Sky Blue equalized in the 43rd minute on a goal from forward Sam Kerr.

Kerr assisted on the game-winning goal in the 82nd minute, jumping up for a header in the middle of the field after a goal kick from goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan. Hayes ran onto the end of the pass and sent it past goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe, starting in place of the injured Ashlyn Harris, for the game-winner.
