Racing Louisville FC’s Katie Lund had herself a game on Tuesday, tying the NWSL regular season single-game saves record in the club’s 1-1 tie against OL Reign.

Lund made 12 saves while allowing just one goal, a shot from Jess Fishlock in the game’s second minute.

“I want to do whatever I can for this team and I know how hard this team works,” Lund said. “I want to say it comes naturally, but it was just a good night. I was feeling it, and I’m proud of the team for fighting, for blocking shots and taking away a lot of channels that they almost could have had in addition to the ones that I saved.”

Kierstan Davis evened the score in the 46th minute and the two teams would hold even after the half, resulting in the draw.
Head coach Kim Björkegren said after the game that Lund’s career night was a makeup for the team’s previous against Portland, a 2-1 loss.

“We played against a really good team,” said Björkegren. “So even if we had the chances to score in the end we can’t cry over one point today. (Lund) had a really great game, and I’m also happy for her because she had mistakes in the previous game… It was a little bit of payback time, and she is a great goalkeeper, so I’m proud of her.”

OL Reign now sits fourth in NWSL standings with 21 points while Racing Louisville is in ninth with 12 points.
