What were YOU doing Saturday night? After a long day of watching #soccer, Seattle Reign FC rounded out the evening with a splendid 3–0 win over Sky Blue FC.
Reign FC’s line up fired on all cylinders as the midfield trio of Keelin Winters, Jess Fishlock, and Kim Little all tallied goals in the victory.
In the 8th minute, Fishlock carried the ball towards Sky Blue’s 18, dished it over to Keelin Winters inside the box who cut it to her right and fired a low shot past goalkeeper Brittany Cameron.
Fishlock’s influence throughout the game was truly felt as the Welsh international drove forward time and time again to keep the momentum in Reign FC’s favor.
In the 28th minute, Beverly Yanez forced a corner kick following a one-on-one chance with Cameron that was saved off the line. Defender Stephanie Cox sent in a spectacular ball and Fishlock rose above her defender to head it home thus putting Reign FC up 2–0.
After a couple close chances in the second half, Reign FC put the game away in the 77th minute when a Little free kick hit the arm of a Sky Blue FC player. She then buried the ensueing penalty in true Little fashion to solidify all three points for the home side.
Re-live all the fun from Saturday night below.
