It’s an action-packed week for OL Reign. After their home win against Portland at Lumen Field, the club heads on the road for a Wednesday evening match against the Houston Dash. The game kicks off at 5 PM PT and will air on CBS Sports Network. International viewers can watch on Twitch.
Just four points separate the two teams. OL Reign has an 8-7-1 record and sit in third place (25 points), while the Houston Dash are 6-6-3 and in eighth place (21 points).
After Wednesday, the Reign stay on the road and take on Louisville this Saturday. Points matter more than ever right now, with just 8 games left on the season. Three points to start their road trip would be massive.
What to Watch
- Stop Houston in transition
- Win duels in the box
