Reign FC finally got their first win on the 2019 season last weekend. They’ll look to claim their second victory on Memorial Day. Against the defending NWSL Champions, North Carolina Courage. With a brand new goalkeeper. It's a tall task indeed for Vlatko Andonovski’s squad, but Monday’s match also sees the return of Reign Original, Jess Fishlock, who is coming off a treble-winning campaign with Olympique Lyonnais in France.
Monday’s match will also see the debut of a new goalkeeper in Casey Murphy, who becomes the team’s new first-choice goalkeeper after the unfortunate season-ending injury to Michelle Betos.
On this episode of “Coffee & Valkyries,” we talk about Murphy and how we think she is more than ready for the task at hand. And as we mention on the podcast about Casey Murphy highlights on YouTube, here’s one of them, a highlight reel of her career at Rutgers University.
