ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Orlando Pride took on the Chicago Red Stars in Orlando at the Exploria Stadium on Wednesday.
They fell to the Chicago Red Stars with a final score of 0-1.
Orlando Pride Head Coach Marc Skinner said that "If I look at the game today, I thought we were excellent. Our mental resilience at the back considering we've given away three sloppy goals against Seattle [Reign FC]. We had just— mistakes, rookie mistakes from a counterattack which they know how to defend; they just make decisions that are incorrect because they're young and inexperienced."
At halftime of Wednesday's match, the Pride announced the Club's first ever Breast Cancer Awareness match, set to take place on Saturday, October 12 in the team's regular-season finale at Exploria Stadium.
In addition, the match events will be bolstered by a league-wide online auction to benefit Libby's Legacy, an Orlando-based non-profit selected by Pride defender Toni Pressley, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in August.
This the last home game for the Pride in the month of September. They will travel to North Carolina to face Courage on September 14th. They then have a week off before closing out the month on the road at Sky Blue FC on September 29th.
