Women Football Nigeria’s Oshoala on target as Bay FC register second straight win

Bay FC earned their second consecutive win, while also recording their third clean sheet of the campaign, earning a 1-0 road win against Racing Louisville FC at Lynn Family Stadium on Saturday.

Super Falcons forward Asisat Oshoala converted from the penalty spot in the 76th minute – the first penalty kick in club history – to help Bay FC secure all three points on the road.

With the win, Bay have earned four wins in their last six games, including back-to-back 1-0 shutout victories. During that same stretch, Bay have conceded multiple goals just one time.

Offensively, Bay have scored in four of those six matches, registering two road wins during that span. Five different players have tallied a goal during that stretch (Oshoala, Tess Boade, Kiki Pickett, Joelle Anderson, Scarlett Camberos).

Bay earned their sixth win of the regular season, and with their third road win of the campaign sit in the eighth and final playoff spot after 15 games.

The table remains tight as Bay are just five points behind Portland Thorns FC in fifth place (23 pts), while trailing the Chicago Red Stars (20pts) in sixth place by two points with the North Carolina Courage on 19 points in seventh place.

With games remaining on Saturday and Sunday, just five points separate the 12th place Houston Dash (14pts) and North Carolina in fifth place.
