Paige Metayer’s header in the 69th minute pulled the Washington Spirit into a 1-1 tie with the visiting Gotham FC on Sunday in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Brazilian Bruninha scored from distance into the top corner to put Gotham (5-2-2) ahead in the 23rd minute at Audi Field. Yazmeen Ryan appeared to add another goal for Gotham on a diving header in the 55th but it was overturned after video review.
