Pride beat FC Kansas City 2-1, extend win streak

Pride's win streak extended to record 4 games


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Orlando Pride beat FC Kansas City 2-1 on the road Saturday, extending its winning streak to four games.

The team said the four wins in a row mark the best string of performances in its two-year history.

The Pride got on the board first with Chioma Ubogagu in the 16th minute, FC Kansas City's Lo'eau LaBonta tied things up just before the halftime whistle and Alex Morgan scored in the 87th minute.

"We always knew it was going to be a difficult game. They are a good footballing side that just won three games in a row. Their confidence was high and they were playing at home. We knew it was going to be a tough game and it turned out that way," Pride head coach Tom Sermanni said. "In fairness, I think we dictated the play for most of the game, apart from the seven minutes of stoppage time when we were under some pressure as [Kansas City] pushed to equalize. Apart from that, we dictated most of the game, most of the play and I think we deserved to win the game."

Orlando finishes the month of August undefeated.

The Pride return to Orlando for their final home matches of the regular season, playing the next three matches from the comforts of Orlando City Stadium, the team said.
