NWSL after dark is back on Wednesday night with a juicy triple-header.
Exploria Stadium; Orlando, Florida
Can the Pride hang with the Thorns? After suffering a loss to OL Reign, the Thorns, once viewed as unstoppable, have proved they are as beatable as any other NWSL club. Orlando, meanwhile, seems to be finding their footing, with Alex Morgan scoring in the team’s draw against the Spirit and win over the Courage.
Second in the NWSL standings, the Pride will look for some added momentum to an already solid start to the season. The Thorns sit in fifth after losing to OL Reign and need a win to move up in the league’s standings.
Legends Field; Kansas City, Kansas
Kansas City hosts Chicago at home on Wednesday as both teams look for their first win of the season. Chicago has yet to score in their two regular-season games and will attempt to end the goalless drought against Kansas City. Coming off a thrilling 2-2 draw against the Dash, Kansas will hope to convert that momentum to a win at home.
BBVA Stadium; Houston, Texas
Originally scheduled as a home game from the Spirit, Wednesday’s match was moved to Houston after construction delays kept the team from playing at Segra Field. The Dash will be hungry for a win at home after conceding a goal late in their tie against Kansas City. The Spirit are still looking for their first win of the regular season after opening the year with a 1-1 draw against Gotham and a 2-0 loss against Racing Louisville.
