As the Pride travel out to Seattle to take on the Reign, here are five things to watch for on Sunday night:

Purple Reign

The Pride are currently riding a Club-record six-game winning streak to go along with its nine-game unbeaten streak. The winning streak is the longest in NWSL regular season play since North Carolina in 2019 and is one win away from equaling the longest winning streak in league history during the regular season. The Pride have also now scored in 13 straight games dating back to the end of last season. The last time the Pride were shut out was against the Seattle Reign on Sept. 3, 2023, in a 1-0 defeat at Lumen Field.

A Reign Storm is Brewing

Forward Adriana netted her first goal of the season in the Pride’s last match, recording the game-winning goal from the penalty spot in a 1-0 win over Bay FC. The penalty served as her first penalty kick while donning the Pride kit. The Brazilian international now has seven goals for the Club, which has moved her to a tie for seventh place in Club history for most goals scored.

When it Reigns, it Pours

Barbra Banda continues to make an impact for the Pride since joining the Club, earning a penalty in the last match against Bay FC, which would eventually count as the game-winning penalty. After appearing in only five matches, starting just four, Banda ranks third in the NWSL with 17 shots on target. The 17 shots on target are the most by any NWSL player in her first five NWSL matches and the most by any player in her first five appearances of a season in NWSL history.

Reigning on your Parade

Goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse and the backline of the Pride earned their fourth clean sheet of the season, the most in the NWSL. They were the first team this season to hold Bay FC scoreless and holding them to just six shots. Through nine games, the team has only allowed seven goals, the third best in the league in that category. The Pride have also fielded six different defensive lineups through its first nine games with multiple players shifting along the backline.

Here Comes the Reign

The Pride currently sit second in the NWSL standings below the Kansas City Current based on goal differential. The Pride are just one of two NWSL teams that remain unbeaten so far this season and are one of three NWSL teams that have yet to lose while on the road this campaign. The Pride are heading to Seattle in search of their first ever away win against the Reign in both teams’ history.
