NWSL 2021 Season Week 3 Round Up


Well that is another week done and dusted in the NWSL with 8 games taking place and some great results occurring. The majority of teams played twice in week 3 but it didn't seem to effect the likes of the Orlando Pride who have kept in fine form and are getting the results the fans have been calling for in recent years. The week definitely provided some shock results but here is how the results looked...

Orlando Pride 2-1 Portland Thorns

Kansas City 0 - 2 Chicago Red Stars

Washington Spirit 2 - 1 Houston Dash

North Carolina Courage 5 - 0 Racing Louisville 

Houston Dash 2 - 1 Chicago Red Stars 

Gotham 0 - 1 Portland Thorns

Orlando Pride 1 - 0 Kansas City 

OL Reign 0 - 1 Washington Spirit

The Orlando Pride took away 6 points out of 6 in week 3 after pulling off a great victory against the Portland Thorns and then going on to beat Kansas City. I have to admit I thought the Thorns were going to beat the Pride but it is nice to see the Pride showing us all what they are capable of. Washington Spirit also picked up all 6 points on offer by not only beating Houston but by also beating OL Reign which again I didn't think was going to happen. North Carolina Courage showed the newbies Racing Louisville what they were capable of with a 5-0 victory too, could this mean we are going to see the North Carolina we are all used to seeing?

So 3 weeks is over and here is how the table is looking...

1) Orlando Pride - 10 

2) Washington Spirit - 7 

3) Portland Thorns - 6 

4) North Carolina Courage - 4 

5) Gotham - 4 

6) Houston Dash - 4

7) OL Reign - 4

8) Chicago Red Stars - 4 

9) Louisville - 4 

10) Kansas City - 2 

It might only be early on in the season but I am loving seeing Orlando Pride sat at the top. With 4th place through to 9th all on 4 points each I think we are in for a very interesting season especially with the Olympics quickly approaching.
