Wambach and Flash vs. Reign at Starfire

Here's a preview from the club:

Seattle Reign FC will be looking to stretch their unbeaten streak to five games as they host Abby Wambach and the Western New York Flash today, Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. PST at the Moda Health Pitch at Starfire Stadium.

Seattle (2-9-3, 9 pts.) has turned their season around in the last four games, earning eight points and getting their first two wins of the season.

“We are really pleased with our recent results,” said Reign FC head coach and GM Laura Harvey. “The results are starting to match our good performances that we had at the beginning of the season, but we still have a long way to go in our push to make the playoffs.”

Seattle’s new signings have been making their presence know. Midfielder Megan Rapinoe scored her first goal of the season against the Chicago Red Stars in her third match for Reign FC, while forward Jessica McDonald scored her first goal of the season in her first appearance for SRFC in last week’s match against the Boston Breakers.

This will be the second meeting of the season between Seattle and Western New York (6-3-5, 23 pts., fourth place), with their first game ending in a 1 – 1 tie on June 23 in Rochester, New York.
