OL Reign denied Racing Louisville back-to-back Women’s Cup victories, stealing the tournament in a 2-1 come-from-behind win Saturday.

Racing Louisville got on the board first, with Kristen Davis scoring a far-post banger off the half turn to put her side up 1-0 in the 34th minute.

Second-half subs were the difference makers for OL Reign, with Olivia Athens nodding in a corner from Tziarra King to equalize in the 59th minute.

Less than ten minutes later, Jordyn Huitema logged the go-ahead goal for OL Reign, splitting the Louisville defense before letting off a low shot from the top of the box.

OL Reign coach Laura Harvey praised the team’s substitutes, speaking to the club’s roster depth following Saturday’s win.

“That’s probably the most rewarding thing for me in this tournament,” said Harvey. “You’re seeing the future of what this club could be moving forward.”

Earlier in the day, America Femenil defeated AC Milan 5-4 in a thrilling third-place match, rounding out the Women’s Cup podium.
