Women Football Banda scores as Orlando Pride earn seventh clean sheet in win at Angel City FC

The Orlando Pride (10-0-5, 35 points) defeated Angel City FC (4-8-3, 15 points) by a 3-0 scoreline thanks to a first half brace from Adriana, and late extra insurance from Zambia international Barbra Banda.

The Pride have extended their unbeaten streak to 15 games to start the season and 16 dating back to the end of last season. With 11 games still remaining, the 10 wins tie the team’s 2023 total win total and is the second-most in Club history behind the 11 they had in 2017.

The Pride have also now won every match played at Angel City FC, holding a 3-0-0 record against the 2022 expansion side on the road. Adriana’s brace counted as her first of the season, making her the third Pride player this year to score two goals in a single match.

The Pride also got a late goal from Banda which served as her 11th of the year, tying her for the most amongst all NWSL players so far this season.

Goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse and the Pride backline earned their seventh clean sheet of the year which ties the Club record for most clean sheets in a single season, a record she broke last year.
