Results from Matchday 19. Future TBD.
Eight years of frustration for the Red Stars ended as they beat the Thorns 2-1. Sinclair got the Thorns off to a good start (again), but Bixby gifted an equalizer and then Chicago scored on a nice cross-and-shoot sequence. The Thorns could not find an answer.
Four players predicted a Sinclair goal but all the other possible points went begging. Constant Weeder bagged the two wild points with a take on “Who’s on first?” involving borrowed shirts and a befuddled referee.
[2-1 loss. Sinclair from Dunn, Watt from Wright, Hill from Pugh. First yellow card to Sauerbrunn, no red.]
Now we know that there will be no match this weekend. We will resume once the revised schedule is available.
