Spirit Suffer Second Home Loss, Fall to Courage 3-2
The Washington Spirit suffered their second straight one-goal home as they lost a tough match to the NWSL leading North Carolina Courage on a rare Wednesday night game at the Maryland SoccerPlex. The Courage scored two late goals to win 3-2.
While losing the game may be tough for the Spirit who have won just four games this season, tied four and lost 12, the more difficult loss may be the injury to outstanding defender Estelle Johnson who was carried off the field on a stretcher. And Nigerian International forward Francisca Ordega come off the field with a hamstring injury late in the game.
