The Orlando Pride needed some late heroics to avoid going winless on their three-game homestand, and Marta provided just that.

With just four minutes left until stoppage time, Marta scored off an assist from Sydney Leroux to give the Pride a 2-1 win over the Washington Spirit at Orlando City Stadium.

The Pride lost the previous two games of their homestand, but salvaged one and improved to 7-5-4 on the season.

The Pride fell behind, 1-0, in the 26th minute on a goal by Washington’s Ashley Hatch, but Leroux scored the equalizer in stoppage time at the end of the first half to make it a 1-1 game.

Next up for the Pride is a game at the Houston Dash at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
