 ⚽️Red Stars: After starting the season with a loss and a draw, the Red Stars earned their first win last night, beating Kansas City FC 2–0. Striker Kealia Watt scored her first regular-season goal, and less than two minutes later, forward Makenzy Doniak doubled their lead

  • Thanks to our depth in the midfield, we didn’t miss Julie Ertz too much, but sadly the MCL sprain she suffered in the Red Stars’ opener is likely going to keep her off the pitch until she joins the USWNT for the Olympics. Sadboi hours

🎓🥍Wildcats: The undefeated Northwestern women’s lacrosse team has been tearing through the NCAA tournament, earning their spot in the Final Four by beating Denver 19–4 in the second round and Duke 22–10 in the quarterfinals. Go off. 

  • Next, the No. 2 Wildcats will take on the No. 3 Syracuse Orange in the semifinals at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT tomorrow. Time to dominate.

Rapid Recaps: 

  • ⚾️Third baseman David Bote put the Cubs on the board against the Pittsburgh Pirates with his two-run homer in the second inning last night, and the North Siders never looked back, beating the Pirates 4–1. Goin’ back-to-back. 
  • ⚾️The White Sox lost 4–0 to the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday, but you know what’s worse? The Sox changed Loretta’s Lounge (a concession stand named for a long-time stadium worker) to LaRussa’s. SMH. At least they know their target market?

🏀The Sky lost 93–80 to the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday for their second straight loss. Hopefully the squad can snap this streak tomorrow night when they take on the LA Sparks at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT.
