PORTLAND, Ore. – Playing in a nationally televised game Sunday on FOX Soccer, the Chicago Red Stars staged a big comeback to salvage a 3-3 tie against the Portland Thorns.
Trailing 1-0 at halftime and 2-0 early in the second half, Alyssa Mautz halved the deficit when she scored from the top of the 18-yard box in the 60th minute. The Thorns went back ahead 3-1 three minutes later, but the Red Stars (6-7-5) continued to battle.
Red Stars defender Rachel Quon found Mautz with a pass toward the back post, and Mautz headed it past Portland keeper Karina Leblanc to make it a 3-2 game in the 75th minute.
