Gotham FC dominated on both sides of the ball Saturday afternoon to down OL Reign 3-0.

Ifeoma Onumonu struck first in the 38th minute, catching Sarah Bouhaddi off her line to beat the Reign keeper one-on-one for the go-ahead finish.

Gotham FC doubled their lead in the 60th minute when Midge Purce knocked in a lofted ball from Nahomi Kawasumi. Purce’s clinical finish put her side up 2-0.

Gotham’s dominance continued well into the second half, with Domi Richardson scoring the team’s third goal in the 85th minute. Richardson’s second-career finish came off a blistering Gotham transition, beating the Reign defense to slot the ball past Bouhaddi.

Saturday marked Gotham’s first road win of the regular season.
