The Seattle Reign are really good. By now, that should be pretty obvious. They have, after all, won two NWSL Shields on the trot and are stacked with world-class players.
Well, two of them are putting on a pretty crazy game of "anything you can do."
Jess Fishlock was the first to lay down her marker. Controlling a stray ball outside the penalty with her thigh, Fishlock then hit her shot off the volley from about 22 yards out. The looping shot was deposited in the back of the net.

Not to be outdone by her doppelganger, Megan Rapinoe got her chance for her own amazing goal a few minutes later. Rapinoe picked up a loose ball around 26 yards out and let a rocket rip. Her shot hit off the post and into the net.
