The Eagles earned a great result Sunday in Cleveland, scoring three goals in the second half to come back from a 3-0 halftime deficit to get a point against the Ambassadors. Both teams remain unbeaten in the WPSL, and Columbus stays atop the Valley division on seven points from a possible nine.  In the 50th minute, trailing 3-0, Micaela Powers launched a free kick and it found its way in over the Cleveland keeper. It was Powers’s first goal for the Eagles, and it got Columbus on the board to launch the comeback.

Twelve minutes later, Amber Kern got through the Cleveland defense and received a great pass from Ashley Gogolin. Kern rounded the keeper and scored to get the Eagles back within one.

In the 78th minute, Eagles forward Erin Brockway pounced on a loose clearance and poked it into the net to complete the Columbus comeback. It was her first goal since June 2017, when she scored the winning goal at MAPFRE Stadium.

The Eagles return home Sunday for a huge WPSL match against Motor City FC of Detroit, Mich. Motor City won its first league match 8-0 over Empire United (Rochester, NY) and is the defending champion of the Great Lakes division of the WPSL.  Tickets are on sale now online and will be the same price ($10) on matchday at the event gate. Kickoff Sunday is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Otterbein University’s Memorial Stadium. Gates will open at 6:15 p.m.
