Spirit’s Winless Streak Continues with 1-0 Mid-Week Loss at Utah



The Washington Spirit have not posted a Win since a 1-0 victory over Sky Blue on May 23. The Spirit’s 11 game winless streak continued Wednesday night with a 1-0 loss in a mid-week match-up with the Utah Royals FC.

In a defensive battle at Rio Tinto Stadium, the Spirit goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe racked up seven saves, but a second half goal by Utah’s Katie Stengel, a one-time Spirit forward, proved to be the difference in the game.

Following a scoreless first half, the lone goal came in the 74th minute, with Taylor Lytle assisting Stengel on the play. Bledsoe increased her league-leading save total to 92 on the season.

Washington will visit the Houston Dash in their next game on Friday, August 17 with kickoff at 8:30 pm. The team returns to the Maryland SoccerPlex on Wednesday, August 22 to host Utah Royals FC at 7:30 p.m.


The Washington Spirit has opened ticket sales for the club’s home game at the new Audi Field in Washington, D.C. on August 25 against Portland Thorns FC.

Fans interested in purchasing Youth Group Experiences or renting Audi Field Suites should contact the Washington Spirit sales office at: 301-591-0927.
