Sky Blue FC Welcomes Washington Spirit to Yurcak Field for 7 p.m. Kickoff
Piscataway, N.J. – Sky Blue FC (7-7-2, 23 points) will return to National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) action on Friday, hosting the Washington Spirit (3-8-3, 12 points) at Yurcak Field in Piscataway, N.J. Kickoff for the match is set for 7:00 p.m. ET, and fans can purchase tickets online or by calling 888-SBFC-TIX (888-723-2849).
“We are excited to get back on the field after the break last weekend,” said Christy Holly, Sky Blue FC head coach. “The team has been looking very rejuvenated and fresh during training, and we are ready to make a big push as we enter the final third of the season.”
Following the second NWSL international break of the year, Sky Blue FC will look to get back on the winning track after seeing an incredible rally come up just short in its last outing against Seattle Reign FC two weeks ago. Trailing 4-0 in the second half of that contest, Sky Blue FC responded with four goals in 26 minutes to level that match at four apiece, with four different goal-scorers finding the back of the net. Unfortunately for the New Jersey outfit, Megan Rapinoe then finished a Katlyn Johnson feed in the 87th minute to claim a 5-4 result for Seattle.
Historically, Sky Blue FC leads the all-time series with the Spirit at 7-5-2 overall, and it holds a 4-2-0 edge in New Jersey. The last time these two clubs met was earlier this season on May 6 at the Maryland Soccer Plex, where seven total goals were scored. Sky Blue FC came out on the wrong side of that fixture, falling by a tally of 4-3.
Washington enters Friday night amid a four-game winless streak, with its last result being a 2-1 loss to Portland Thorns FC at Providence Park.
Individual and group tickets for Friday’s match are available now online or by calling 888-SBFC-TIX (888-723-2849). For all of the latest news on Sky Blue FC, follow us on social media: @SkyBlueFC
