Late goal earns Spirit a draw with Red Stars in NWSL fall series


Crystal Thomas scored in the 88th minute to pull the Washington Spirit into a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Red Stars on Saturday.

Savannah McCaskill took a cross from Sarah Luebbert and scored from close range against Spirit goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe in the 73rd minute, giving Chicago (1-1-1) the lead.

But Thomas sprinted past Chicago goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher and scored for the Spirit (1-1-1).

It was the second and final meeting between the teams in the National Women’s Soccer League’s fall series. The Spirit previously defeated the Red Stars 2-1.
