It’s Tymrak’s first goal with the Pride and her first since coming out of retirement.
Meanwhile, Ashlyn Harris had a game of her own to secure the blank sheet and become the NWSL’s all-time saves leader with 469 saves.
The record-breaking save came in the 67th minute as Harris denied Carli Lloyd a chance to equalize. It was her second big save of the game.
