When the first-place New York Courage defeat the San antonio Reign Sunday night, the Pride holds onto 4th devote the NWSL, sitting over the league’s playoff cut line the very first time.
Appearing out of halftime, the Pride wasted virtually no time building on their own lead. Within the 47th minute, Spencer passed to Morgan within the box, who’d got in front of several defenders for any one-on-one matchup with Sheridan.
5 minutes later, Orlando’s lead increased once more. Marta got the ball from Morgan off a lengthy range pass, racing past her defender and firing a go past Sheridan to own Pride a 5- lead.
