Angel City FC loses a tough match against the Chicago Red Stars at home
Angel City FC played hard for 90 minutes against the Red Stars, but just couldn't get the equalizer after Chicago scored twice in the first half. We cut the lead in half in the 88th minute when Sydney Leroux scored in her first match back after an ankle injury last season, as well as had two solid chances in added time, but we just couldn't get the equalizer. However it was a good match and now we head onto the road to face the Washington Spirit next weekend.
One of the highlights was the spectacular effort Alyssa Thompson put in to get around the defender and cross the ball to Leroux for the goal. Excellent assist, and will be very exciting to see these two team up for multiple goals moving forward!
