The winless Pride knocked off the undefeated North Carolina Courage on Sunday in a result that pretty much typifies the 2017 NWSL season. Meanwhile, Nahomi Kawasumi became the first player in league history to notch 4 assists in a game. That was part of a six-goal barrage by the Reign, more goals than half of the teams have scored all season. Oh, and Mallory Pugh is coming. Here’s where we stand in NWSL through Week 5.
