Hard times for Reign FC.
Seattle’s NWSL lost its fourth game in a row Saturday, a 2-0 road defeat against Sky Blue FC, to fall to 0-4-1 on the season.
“We didn’t deserve anything out of the game tonight,” coach Laura Harvey told EqualizerSoccer.com. ” We’d be lying if (we said) we did. We got exactly what we deserved, which was a defeat.”
Danesha Adams opened the scoring in the 30th minute and Lisa De Vanna added another five minutes later for the New York/New Jersey hosts held a 10-2 advantage in shots and improved to 3-1-1.
Seattle midfielder Keelin Winters came out of the game in the 51st minute due to an ankle injury.
The Reign host two games at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila in the coming week. First up is the Washington Spirit (0-3-2) at 7 p.m. Thursday and then a rematch with Sky Blue FC at 6 p.m. on May 19. Tickets are available at ReignFC.com.
