This article shared 720 times since Sat Oct 30, 2021
The Chicago Red Stars defeated the Orlando Pride, 1-0, at Exploria Stadium on Oct. 29, according to SB Nation.
Kealia Watt's second-half goal was the difference, and it ensured that Chicago would host an opponent (to be determined) in the quarterfinals of the NWSL playoffs. The Red Stars became the first team in NWSL history to reach the playoffs on six consecutive occasions, having finished in the top four every season since 2015.
Sarah Gorden's full 90-minute performance officially earned her the title of Chicago's very first Iron Woman, a press release noted. The Chicagoland native became the first player in Red Stars history to have started and played in every single minute of the NWSL regular season, and was one of two players this season in the league to have played every minute up to this point.
The playoff match will take place Sunday, Nov. 7; the time and opponent will be announced later. Tickets are available at chicagoredstars.com/playoffs.
