View from the Seats: Sky Blue FC vs. Washington Spirit

Fan-centric images from the SkyBlue FC match against the Washington Spirit on Sunday, April 24.

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.

And Once A Metro hopes you enjoy these game-day images.
