On the team's Fan Appreciation Night (Oct. 16) at SeatGeek Stadium, the Chicago Red Stars (10-8-5) defeated Kansas City (3-13-6) 2-1 in NWSL action.
The Red Stars scored behind an own-goal from Kansas City's Kristen Edmonds and a second-half goal from Chicago's Makenzy Doniak.
Arin Wright's 90-minute performance (with 74 touches, 43 passes and three interceptions) will go down as one of her more memorable ones; in the 49th minute of play, she eclipsed the 10,000-minute mark in her NWSL career.
The Red Stars play their final regular-season game of the season Friday, Oct. 29, as they will take on the Orlando Pride in Florida. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Pride were eliminated from playoff contention Oct. 16 by losing 3-1 to Louisville.
