Seattle Reign FC will play their third match in nine days tomorrow—Sunday, May 19—as they face Sky Blue FC at 6 p.m. The match will be played at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila, Wash. Coach Laura Harvey and Reign FC (0-5-1) look to build on their first two home goals of the season—scored on Thursday in a 2-4 loss to the Washington Spirit—and get their first win of the young NWSL season. Sky Blue FC (4-1-1) are tied for first place in the NWSL and are coming off a big road win on Thursday evening against the Portland Thorns. Sky Blue FC features three players from the US Women's national team, Jill Loyden, Kelley O'Hara and Christie Rampone, as well as Canadian National Team players Sophie Schmidt and Melanie Booth. Reign FC will again be without their U.S. Women's National team goalkeeper, Hope Solo, who is still recovering from wrist surgery and will miss tonight’s match. A timeline for Hope’s first match with Reign FC has not yet been finalized. Forward Amy Rodriguez will miss the entire season as the result of her pregnancy.
