San Diego Wave FC punched its ticket to the next round with a 2-1 victory over Chicago Red Stars Sunday. The team fought back from a one-goal deficit with a 67th-minute goal from Emily Van Egmond and an overtime game-winner from Alex Morgan.

“We are excited, prepared, and really looking forward to it,” Wave head coach Casey Stoney said Friday.

Stoney said the team will do everything it can to make the final and “give you one last game to cheer. We see you. We hear you. We appreciate you. We know you are with us every step of the way. You’ve made a big difference to us at key moments in the season.”

At a press conference, goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan said the club is very proud to be representing San Diego.

“At the end of the day, the way that [the fans] have shown up for us is even more massive than we could have ever imagined and that we could ever ask for,” Sheridan said.
