The Orlando Pride fell to Gotham FC 1-0 in Exploria Stadium Wednesday night in their home 2021 opener. Usually, I would make a point of the whole NJ/NY thing, but honestly I’m too disappointed in the result to do so. The matches against Racing Louisville and Gotham FC were the Pride’s best chances to get points in the Challenge Cup, and they only managed to get one point. Let’s look at what we learned from the Pride’s second match.
The Pride had 17 shots with seven on goal, that resulted in absolutely zero goals scored.
