However, another superb defensive game from Steph Catley and Laura Alleway helped the Pride record their second clean sheet at home. 

Pride were also able to net a goal and beat the Flash 1-0. 

The final NWSL game of the weekend was between rivals, the Seattle Reign and the Portland Thorns.  Hayley Raso entered the game for the Thorns in the 73rd minute and helped maintain the 1-1 tie.
