Megan Rapinoe was so determined to give OL Reign teammate Bethany Balcer an epic goal celebration that she got a yellow card for it.

After Balcer scored a brace in the 20th minute of Saturday’s match between the Reign and the Chicago Red Stars, Rapinoe entered the pitch from the sidelines to give Balcer headphones for a DJ celebration — earning her a yellow card. (Balcer’s celebration can be seen at the end of the video embedded below.)

Rapinoe subbed in at the start of the second half and went on to contribute a goal — and celebration — of her own in the Reign’s 5-2 win over the Red Stars.
