The Chicago Red Stars picked up a 0-0 draw with Seattle Reign FC on Saturday in Seattle. The Red Stars have yet to be defeated this season and remain on top of the NWSL. The Red Stars played a tenacious defense and goalkeeper Michele Dalton got her second clean sheet of the season while making seven saves against last year’s NWSL Shield winners.

The Red Stars had good scoring chances throughout the match but the Reign FC defense was up to the task. Vanessa DiBernardo had good attempt in the first half but was turned away by Reign FC goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer. In the second half, Michelle Lomnicki’s header off a corner kick from Danielle Colaprico bounced just wide left of the net.

Dalton made seven saves to hold off the Reign offense.

The Red Stars (4-0-3, 15 pts.) remain on the road traveling to Western New York to play the Flash on June 6. The Red Stars will take a two-week World Cup tournament break before returning home to Benedictine Sport Complex to play the Washington Spirit on June 20.
