ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Pride scored a big shutout win against the Chicago Red Stars at Exploria Stadium on Sunday evening.

Behind two goals from Messiah Bright, Orlando scorched the fire 5-0.

The five goals tie the club record for most goals scored in a match, a feat now accomplished three times in the Pride’s history – two of which have come against Chicago.

“The players were brilliant today from start to finish and the intensity of how they did everything from attacking to defending,” head coach Seb Hines said after the match. “We talked heavily about taking our opportunities and end products in the final third and they were brilliant. I can’t speak highly enough of them. We’ve felt like that performance has been coming, but it’s nice to finally get a good scoreline at the end of it.”

Goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse earned her fifth clean sheet of the season.
