Coffee & Valkyries, Episode 4: The One With Beverly Yanez

Yes, we did chat about Avocado.


This Saturday, Seattle Reign FC hit the road (again), this time heading down I-5 to take on the Portland Thorns FC. The latest chapter in the NWSL’s version of the Seattle/Portland rivalry gets the national Lifetime Game of the Week broadcast.

On this episode of the podcast, Reign FC forward/midfielder Beverly Yanez joined us to discuss that and more. Yanez talked about lessons learned from the Orlando match, the state of the team, and more. Here’s the full synopsis of the fourth episode:

One of the objectives of this podcast was to feature when we could Seattle Reign FC players. We know what they can do on the field, but who are they off it? We’re proud and honored to have on this episode, forward/midfielder Beverly Yanez. Ahead of a major rivalry match against the Portland Thorns, Yanez chatted with us about the previous match down at Orlando, what the Seattle/Portland rivalry means to her, and engaged in a fun Q&A about favorite goals, Vegemite, and the newest favorite among Reign FC fans, her puppy, Avocado.

And speaking of favorite goals, let’s relive the iconic goal she scored against Washington Spirit in the 2015 NWSL Playoff Semi-Final, in which — yep, her very first touch on the ball after coming off the bench was for a goal. One touch, one kill. That’s Beverly Yanez, folks.
