Caprice Dydasco’s first career goal was a (accidental?) stunner


Was it a shot, or was it a cross, or was it a “shross”?  No matter how you define it, Caprice Dydasco’s hybrid finish was a thing of beauty.

In the 45th minute of Gotham FC’s game against the Orlando Pride, Dydasco deployed a clever overlapping run into the box to launch the ball toward the far post, tucking in the back of the net behind Ashlyn Harris. The go-head finish was Dydasco’s first NWSL goal.

Gotham’s 1-0 advantage lasted until the 90th minute of the match when the Pride’s Courtney Petersen sent a looping ball of her own past the gloves of Kailen Sheridan to equalize seconds before the end of regulation.

The Pride’s dramatic finish preserves the team’s unbeaten record. Orlando remains atop the NWSL standings with 12 points, while Gotham slides into the fourth slot with eight points.
