ORLANDO - The Chicago Red Stars remain unbeaten in their first three regular-season matches after a 1-1 draw with the Orlando Pride. Forward, Mallory Swanson, secured the draw for the club with a left-footed goal in the 64th minute of play. The Red Stars have next week off before returning to SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois to take on Angel City FC Saturday, April 13.


21' Orlando Pride's, Angelina, delivers a ball from a corner kick toward the near post of Chicago's goal. Chicago's, Alyssa Naeher, comes out to punch the ball, but is bumped by a Pride player and the ball is tipped into the net to give the Pride the lead, 1-0 Orlando

30' Chicago's Ally Schlegel receives the ball at the top of Orlando's 18-yard box takes a touch inside the box and takes a shot, but it goes straight to the keeper's hands, 1-0 Orlando
