In front of its first sold-out crowd and in the NWSL’s first nationally televised game, Reign FC kept its hot streak going.

The Reign came from behind to beat the Washington Spirit, 2-1, in front of 3,855 at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila thanks to two goals from Jessica McDonald.

The win, which was broadcast on FOX Soccer, kept Seattle (4-9-3) unbeaten in its last six games.

Diana Matheson gave Washington (1-10-4) its only goal on a penalty kick in the 11th minute. McDonald scored in the 30th and 34th minutes to give Seattle the win in a battle between the league’s bottom two teams.
