Seattle Reign FC will play their fourth match in eleven days this evening, Wednesday, July 3, when they host the Boston Breakers at the Moda Health Pitch at Starfire Stadium at 7 p.m. Seattle (2-9-2, 8 pts.) have been rolling since midfielder Megan Rapinoe joined the squad on June 21, going undefeated and grabbing seven points out of their last three matches.
“Megan is Megan,” said Reign FC midfielder Jess Fishlock. “She adds that quality, gives us a little bit more confidence, and scares other teams. We don’t change the way we play, and that’s the beauty of Megan coming to our side - she has come in and has been able to start straight away.”
This will be the second meeting between Seattle and Boston (4-5-3, 15 pts.), with their first meeting on the road in Boston resulting in Seattle’s first win of the season. Over the past 10 days Reign FC has made several roster changes to add more offense and strengthen its back line. In addition to forwards Megan Rapinoe and Kennya Cordner, who were both available for Seattle’s previous three matches, Reign FC has added forward Jessica McDonald via waivers from Chicago and traded with FC Kansas City for forward Renae Cuéllar. Seattle has also added US WNT Olympic Gold Medalist Stephanie Cox to the roster.
Rapinoe, Cuéllar, Cox, and McDonald will all be available for selection in tonight’s match. Forward Kennya Cordner is listed as doubtful for the match, as she picked up a hamstring injury during the win against Chicago last Saturday.
The match against the Boston Breakers will be streamed live at www.ReignFC.com and will be available on-demand within 48 hours of the match by visiting the NWSL channel at www.YouTube.com/NWSL.
Reign FC will continue their home stretch next week when they face the Abby Wambach and the Western New York Flash on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. at the Moda Health Pitch at Starfire Stadium.
