Four things about the Washington Spirit finding a way past the North Carolina Courage

The Washington Spirit had to dig deep to get a 2-1 win over the North Carolina Courage on Wednesday. Like, deep: Andi Sullivan was out, the Spirit had never won in NC, the playoff race is as tight as it’s ever been in NWSL history, and at least according to acting head coach Kris Ward, the fluency within how the Spirit played wasn’t quite there on the night. Despite all that though, they fought to get the win thanks to some timely strikes from Trinity Rodman (own goal or not) and Julia Roddar, and a vintage Aubrey Bledsoe performance.
