OL Reign scored four goals for the first time this season as they took down Gotham FC at Lumen Field in front of 7,048 fans. Megan Rapinoe scored two goals, Rose Lavelle added another, and a Rapinoe cross/shot caused a Gotham own goal. While Gotham FC managed to score a goal of their own, the Reign dominated and walked away with a 4-1 win on Sunday afternoon.
