After two matches on the road, Reign FC made its return to the Moda Pitch at Memorial Stadium with a 3–1 victory over Washington Spirit.
Reign FC opened the scoring in the 36th minute. Forward Merritt Mathias carried the ball into the box and played it off for forward Beverly Yanez who one-touched it into the top of the goal.
Just three minutes into the second half, Reign FC doubled its lead, this time with Mathias on the back end. Scottish international Kim Little sent a cross into the box, connecting with the head of Mathias to extend the lead and give Mathias her first tally of the season.
12 minutes after the Spirit cut the lead in half, Little picked up her second assist of the night, connecting with a sliding Fishlock on a through ball that she pushed into the net for the game’s final goal.
