After a rollercoaster season, OL Reign begin their playoff journey today with an NWSL semifinal match at Cheney Stadium. The Reign kick off against the Washington Spirit at 12 PM PT. The match will air on CBS Sports Network and stream on Twitch for international viewers.
Note: CBS Sports Network matches sadly aren’t co-streamed on Paramount+.
It’s win-or-go-home time for Laura Harvey’s squad. It’s also going to be a soggy affair, with Western Washington dealing with constant rainfall that will certainly impact the grass at Cheney Stadium.
The winner books a trip to Louisville for the NWSL Championship match on November 20. Harvey and the Reign have the squad to go all the way and a desire to finally claim that title that eluded them in Harvey’s first stint as head coach. Will they get there? Watch with us to find out.
What to Watch
- Create some early chances, and finish them
