Check out our gameday photos for the Washington Spirit VS NC Courage, Challenge Cup, April 10, 2021
The NC Courage opened up the 2021 Challenge Cup with a 3-2 at-home win. At times, sprinkles of rain and dark clouds threatened. Despite being without Abby Erceg (injury), Lynn Williams, Casey Murphy, Denise O’Sullivan, Diane Caldwell, and Lindsay Agnew (all with their international squads), the Courage still looked fierce and fit with Kristen Hamilton, Jess McDonald, and Merritt Mathias all finding the back of the net.
The April 10, 2021 match was one of four Challenge Cup matches for the Courage, and one of two home matches at Sahlen’s Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park. The Courage now go on the road for their next two matches at NJ/NY Gotham FC (formerly Sky Blue FC) and Racing Louisville FC before coming back to Cary to face the Orlando Pride.
