Last 20 minutes we continued to give the ball back to Louisville. It almost looked like we were daring them to score. They were unable to do so.

10 points from 4 games. Will be clear of everyone top of the table. No matter what happens tomorrow. Women's UEFA Champions League Semi Final tomorrow morning starts 6:30 AM our time. Will probably sleep through it.

I’m still okay with tonight but I kinda want to see how we do against Seattle or SDW in the league. Racing has looked pretty crap. Not Orlando-crap, but crap.

Anyone know what happened to Sincy's arm/wrist?

Dunn is outrageously good on the half turn with that low center of gravity

Careless defending in the 53rd minute. Bixby up strong to turn over.

So I’m okay so far. Put away the gimme putts with the help of some clever dummies, but probably left two or three more on the table. Long stretch (5-40’) when the passing in the final third and out of the press wasn’t there. If Racing was anything but utter crap I’d be a little more nervous .

Thorns 2v1 the non-elite teams to death on the attacking midfield with Dunn playing like she is. Howell’s been completely overwhelmed by the Sinc/Dunn combo and Soph dropping deep creates additional overload.

Still some concern playing out against the better teams, but I love how much space the Thorns create for Soph and Morgan by playing with the two 8s.

Coffey is one maybe 2 fouls away from a red.

Another great dummy! Hina(?) totally sells it and frees Weaver up for the tap-in, 2-nil at the half.

Weaver reverting to her true self, refusing to get her body squared on crosses

Fantastic awareness Hubly there seeing the run and cleaning up Becky’s mistake

This is one of the better halves Soph’s played in terms of connecting play, which is usually her weakness

Sinc! Granny’s been nipping at that Extra Strength Geritol again. Having a damn fine half…

Expand full comment

Sinc shoulda squared that second chance to Soph

Since the goal the Thorns seem determined to throw passes away. Lots of little lateral dinks and drops, but the final pass forward is wasted.

Scary moment in the 21st minute; Kling and Brunn pass back to Bixby under heavy pressure and Bix passes directly out to Racing. Luckily McDonald(?) fumbles the cross.

This ref is not great

Reyes has the teeeeeneist amount of Po energy to her lol

Soph pulls pikkujamsa’s hammy, shocking squares instead of shooting, Dunn dummies into the path of Sinc for the finish

Brilliant run and cross from Smith and dummy from Dunn, Sinc w the opening goal in the 3rd minute.

So I got to the shed early enough to see munchkins playing in the north end 18 and got some intense nostalgia. Bear with me here; isn’t it time for a Throwback Night?

$6 Widmers. Foam piggybanks and cheap plastic crap. Munchkin vs Mascot soccer at halftime. Thorns in the cheapo Nike rec league red-with-the-white-bar jersey.

Who’d be up for some old school NWSL..?
