Orlando Pride lose to Gotham FC in home opener

Familiar defensive woes continued to haunt the Orlando Pride during their first home match in front of fans at Exploria Stadium in more than a year.

The Pride ceded a late-game goal to drop 1-0 against Gotham FC — newly rebranded from Sky Blue FC — after dominating the game offensively for most of the night.

The game-winner came in the 79th minute when Gotham split out into a rare transition breakaway led by Ifeoma Onumonu. Defender Ali Krieger lost Paige Monaghan on the backside, allowing her to burst toward the back post and knock in a cross from Onumonu.
