Chicago Red Stars defeat Bay FC 2-1 to snap 2-game slide


Ally Schlegel scored the go-ahead goal in the second half to give the Chicago Red Stars a 2-1 victory over Bay FC on Sunday night in the National Women’s Soccer League.

Penelope Hocking also scored for the Red Stars (4-3-1), who snapped a two-game losing streak at PayPal Park in San Jose, California. Three of Chicago’s wins have come on the road.

Bay FC, which joined the league as an expansion team this season, has lost four straight.

Tess Boade gave Bay (2-6-0) the early lead. Chicago goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher attempted to clear the ball but her kick rebounded off Boade’s shoulder and into the goal in the eighth minute. It was Boade’s second goal of the season.

The Red Stars tied it on Hocking’s goal in the 30th minute. Hocking beat two defenders with a blast from distance.

Schlegel’s shot on a rebound off a Bay player tucked into the corner to put the Red Stars in front in the 63rd minute.

Kayla Sharples fouled Hocking in the box but Mallory Swanson’s penalty attempt in the 81st minute was saved by Bay goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland.

Deyna Castellano’s right-footed attempt for Bay early in stoppage time went just inches wide as Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr watched from the stands.
