Although they gave great effort and almost tied the score late in the second half, Sky Blue FC lost to Washington Spirit, 2-1, in their 2016 NWSL home opener. Goals by Ali Krieger and Diana Matheson gave the visitors a commanding lead they never relinquished; Maya Hayes scored for the home team.
The fans enjoyed the match, the half-time contests (goal challenge, blindfold search, and ball toss) and - for those who remained after the game - the chance to meet the players and new coach, Christy Holly.
