HARRISON, NJ (Thursday, June 13, 2024) – NJ/NY Gotham FC will look to extend its eight-game unbeaten streak, when the club travels to face Racing Louisville FC on Saturday, June 15 at Lynn Family Stadium (12 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Additionally, goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger improved her record to 5-0-2, matching goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan (2021) for the longest undefeated run for a goalkeeper in club history.

Saturday will be the second and final match between the two sides this season. On April 28, the two sides played to a 1-1 draw at Red Bull Arena, which was also the start of Gotham FC’s current unbeaten streak. The match featured the season debuts of Berger and Lavelle, with Lavelle scoring the game-tying goal at the death. 

Most recently, Racing Louisville defeated the Houston Dash 2-0 on June 8. Racing midfielder Savannah DeMelo scored the game-winning goal in the 62nd minute and forward Parker Goins found the back of the net in the 85th minute. Louisville is on a two-game winning streak and three-game unbeaten streak.
