OL Reign claim first win in 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup, 3-2, over Chicago Red Stars

After a lesson in growing pains last week in Portland, OL Reign were back on the field tonight, playing in their third 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup match. This time back in the friendly confines of home, they hosted the Chicago Red Stars.

The third game was very much the charm for OL Reign as after conceding first, they responded loudly and held off a late Chicago threat to claim their first win in the 2021 Challenge Cup by a score of 3-2. Mallory Pugh and Morgan Gautrat claimed goals for the visiting Red Stars, while Sofia Huerta, Leah Pruitt, and Tziarra King found the back of the net for the Reign.
