Reign vs Flash: Stream and Game Thread

With the notable exception of Hope Solo, the band is all back together after midweek international absences. Now they try to keep their streak alive on the road against the Flash, who'll be missing some key players.

The Seattle Reign squad is reassembled — mostly. On Wednesday, the Reign weathered a massive number of international absences and were forced to field a team heavily reliant on subs and reserves. But it didn't slow their momentum, as they kept their undefeated streak alive with a 2-0 win. Now those internationals rejoin the team in New York — with the notable exception of Hope Solo, who was arrested Friday night after a domestic disturbance in Kirkland. Obviously, Solo's situation has tremendous implications for her future, both with the Reign and the national team, but for now we just have to wait for the legal process. And the Reign will look to Haley Kopmeyer to protect the goal in the interim.

It's actually fortunate that the Reign are on the road on the East coast this week, as it shortens the trips from Europe for Jess Fishlock and Kim Little and from Connecticut for US players Stephanie Cox and Sydney Leroux. That should help ease them into the starting lineup and rebuild a Reign lineup that has a good chance to keep their streak alive against a Flash team that'll be without injured Abby Wambach and likely Carli Lloyd as well. That didn't slow them midweek, when they beat Chicago 2-0 off a very early goal from Brittany Taylor and a very late goal from Samantha Kerr. But those are massive absences for the Flash offense and should give Seattle a decent chance to finish a tough road trip undefeated.
