And here we are, the final match of the 2021 NWSL season, the NWSL Championship.
Washington Spirit bested the Chicago Red Stars 2-1 in an absolute classic match for the very young NWSL league, a match that required added extra time. Goals from Andi Sullivan and Kelley O’Hara for Washington were what put them over Chicago’s lone goal just before halftime by Rachel Hill.
Even though OL Reign weren’t playing in this match, there was still a lot about NWSL Championship weekend worth highlighting.
WHAT WORKED: WELCOME TO THE NWSL CHAMPIONSHIP
