The Orlando Pride’s winless start to the season continued on Sunday after losing 2-0 to the KC Current at Children’s Mercy Park.

Goals from Debinha and Cece Kizer secured the victory for Kansas City as Orlando fell to 0-4 in the regular season.

“Obviously disappointed with the result. We had a game plan, we stuck to the game plan in moments but didn’t really execute in terms of creating too many opportunities in the attacking third,” said Pride coach Seb Hines. “I don’t think there was a lot between ourselves and Kansas [City] either. We had a lot of corners, lots of shots, but didn’t really make the keeper work. It’s another moment where they’ve capitalized on us giving the ball away and it changed the whole game.” 

The Pride have scored 1 goal and allowed 10 during their first four games of the season as they sit at the bottom of the standings.

Up next, Orlando takes on the San Diego Wave on Saturday at 10 p.m. on the CBS Sports Network.
