US Women’s National Team star Megan Rapinoe led the Seattle Reign to a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Red Stars with 2 goals. It was definitely a whole team effort, though. Kaylyn Kyle scored from the penalty spot and Liz Bogus finished it off with a goal late in the match.
It was a gorgeous evening and of course was a lot of fun to shoot. I always try to get shots of players as they are leaving the field because it’s often a good time to get nice portraits, especially in the setting sunlight at Starfire.
Usually everyone has their game face on and look very serious. But last night, Megan Rapinoe did what most players seem to actively avoid – she looked straight into my lens. And not just that, but she also pulled an awesome goofy face. Thanks Pinoe! I love that photo!
