Close behind DeMelo is forward Uchenna Kanu, who represents Nigeria on the International stage alongside Bay’s Asisat Oshoala, with four goals scored.  

Bay FC is entering the match in strong form, with three wins in their last five outings. Against Angel City on June 22, Bay FC recorded its first home shutout and sealed its first season sweep of an opponent with a 1-0 victory. The Bay backline has been anchored this season by Emily Menges, who became the ninth player in NWSL history to achieve 15,000 career regular season minutes in the last match. In the victory against Angel City, forward Tess Boade took the team lead in goals scored with three on the season.
