Domi Richardson didn’t start the match, nor did she play throughout the 90 minutes.

Still, she found herself on the pitch for the most important moment of New Jersey-New York Gotham FC’s match against the Washington Spirit on Oct. 6 in Chester, Pennsylvania. In front of Carli Lloyd’s hometown fans as part of her pre-retirement farewell tour about 30 miles from her native Delran, New Jersey, all that was an afterthought in the sixth minute at Subaru Park.
