MLS: D.C. United at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good Wednesday morning, Mane Landers! I hope you’re all having an amazing week, which is already half over. Here’s what’s making news in the soccer world.

Share Your Memories and Win

It’s not too late to share your favorite Orlando City memory for a chance to win tickets to watch the Lions up north this summer. Ticketmaster has partnered with OCSC to send one lucky winner and friend to New England to see the boys take on the Revolution. I love happy memories, so I’ll be stalking that hashtag!

Alanna Kennedy Wins Goal of the Week

If you missed this overhead kick in the sixth minute of the Pride’s last match against Reign FC, you missed quite a show. Alanna Kennedy’s efforts not only opened the scoring for the match, but landed her at No. 7 on SportsCenter’s Top Ten, and now she can claim NWSL Goal of the Week!

News on Monica

Earlier this year, Monica took to Instagram to say goodbye to her purple family. The Mane Land’s Andrew Sharp wrote a story about her departure from the Pride before writing his talking points from preseason, where we saw Monica not only train with the Pride, but play the full 90 against USF. Well, the Corinthians women’s side took to Twitter on Tuesday to finally welcome Monica.

Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger Follow Up

People.com first shared the Orlando Pride pair’s engagement announcement in March. Harris and Krieger were initially reserved in sharing their relationship so as to keep things professional. Fans have shown nothing but love and support following the announcement, some sharing how inspired they were to come forward with their sexuality. The couple’s family and friends noted that they look happier, fresher, and relieved.

Free Kicks

Are you excited for Orlando City’s away match at NYCFC? Who is excited to see the Pride play at home this weekend? Season ticket holders can claim two free tickets to the match. Not a season ticket holder? Single-game tickets are available, too. Try to find some joy as we close out this week, Mane Landers!
