Orlando Pride Earn Third-Consecutive Victory With 1-0 Win Over Kansas City

ORLANDO – Orlando Pride (3-0-1, 10 points) took its third-consecutive victory and its fourth result to start the 2021 NWSL regular season on Sunday night, defeating Kansas City (0-2-2, 2 points) in a 1-0 victory at Exploria Stadium.

Marta scored the eventual game-winner in the 16th minute of play, flicking the ball over the line off a header from teammate Alex Morgan. The finish served as the six-time FIFA World Player of the Year’s first of the 2021 season, while Morgan contributed to a finish for the fourth-consecutive match.

Morgan has been involved on two of the Pride’s three deciding finishes this season, scoring the game-winner in North Carolina last Saturday to add to her assist on Sunday.

The Pride hit the road next week, set to take on the Washington Spirit on Sunday, June 6, at Audi Field with kickoff set for 2 p.m. ET.
