Ordega’s Goal Lifts Spirit Over Portland



Francisca Ordega netted her team-leading fourth goal while the Washington Spirit defense recorded its second clean sheet of 2017 in a 1-0 victory over Portland Thorns FC in front of 4,319 fans at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Saturday evening.

Ordega scored what proved to be the game-winner in the 19th minute on a breakaway immediately following a quick Portland turnover in the midfield. As she reached the top of the box, Ordega fired a shot from the left side into the far right corner of the net, well out of the reach of Thorns goalkeeper Adrianna Franch.
