Nonetheless, the striker was a thorn in the side of Sky Blue going close on occasions and switching roles into a number 10.
Ordega has been consistent this season for the NWSL since returning from her loan spell to Atletico Madrid Ladies.
The Nigeria international, who is expected to join the Super Falcons camp later this month, has scored three league goals this season, but Spirit are currently eighth in the table.
