Orlando Pride score twice in extra time to earn frantic draw against Washington Spirit
After going scoreless for the first 94 minutes of play, the Orlando Pride wasted no time in the final five minutes, scoring twice to earn a frantic draw against the Washington Spirit on Friday night.
Just three minutes later, Julie Doyle found Darian Jenkins on the left side of the box, and the 27-year-old slid the ball past Spirit goalkeeper Aubrey Kingsbury to secure the point to improve their record to 2-2-2 on the season.
Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod played the full game for the Pride, stopping one of three shots.
The Spirit, who sit 1-1-3 on the year, beat McLeod 19 minutes in with a goal from Trinity Rodman, and added to their lead in the 66th minute with a marker from Ashley Hatch.
Washington is back in action on Wednesday against the Chicago Red Stars, while the Pride will face the Houston Dash on Friday.
