Reign win, 5-4, and have their first hero.

Words cannot do justice to Itan Chavira’s goal in the shootout, but I’ll try in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Bulletin. He and Andrew Martens scored in the shootout, John Murray only allowed one shootout goal, and the final Condors shot hit the post to seal it.

Chavira pointed to the crowd after his shootout goal, and they responded with a ton of love.

More to come tomorrow morning.
