WNT on TV: NWSL Hits Halfway Mark

The NWSL 2017 season will hit Week 10 this weekend, officially marking the halfway point of the 20-week 2017 season. With four games set for Saturday and one on Sunday, the contenders are starting to pull away from the rest of the pack, but the teams sitting third through seventh in the standings are separated by just four points, meaning playoff spots are surely still up for grabs. Here are this weekend’s matchups as well as the U.S. Women’s National Team players to keep an eye on:

NWSL

Saturday, June 24

Orlando Pride vs. Houston Dash – 3:30 p.m. ET (TV: Lifetime Game of the Week)
After a big win again in Houston last week, Ali Krieger and the Orlando Pride return home this weekend to host Morgan Brian, Carli Lloyd and the Dash in this week’s Lifetime Game of the Week. Orlando’s 4-2 win last Saturday in Houston pushed the Pride up to the sixth in the standings, while the Dash dropped to 10th. Orlando’s Alex Morgan and Ashlyn Harris will miss the game due to injuries.

Orlando has won four of five all-time meetings against the Dash, including the 4-2 win last week in Houston. Orlando is unbeaten at home this season (2W-1D). Houston has won only two of their last 13 away games (9L-2D). The Dash has been outscored 22-9 over that time.

Boston Breakers vs. North Carolina Courage – 4 p.m. ET (go90.com)
After losing at North Carolina last weekend, the Boston Breakers will host Samantha Mewis, Abby Dahlkemper and the top of the table North Carolina Courage at Jordan Field on Saturday, hoping to regain some of the momentum they had earlier in the season. Lynn Williams (Courage; ankle) is a game-time decision, while Rose Lavelle (Breakers; hamstring) will miss the game due to injury.

North Carolina has won both of its meetings against Boston this season. Boston started the season winning their first two home games and keeping clean sheets in both. After allowing no goals in their first two road games this season, the Courage have allowed six goals in their last two away games, both losses.

Washington Spirit vs. Portland Thorns – 7 p.m. ET (go90.com)
Allie Long, Lindsey Horan, Meghan Klingenberg and the Portland Thorns dropped their first home game of the season on Saturday but will look to turn things around quickly as they travel to face the Washington Spirit this weekend. Mallory Pugh (Spirit; ankle) is likely to miss the game.

Washington has won just one of their 10 all-time meetings against Portland (5L-4D). Portland won the most recent meeting 4-1 in Portland. After a slow start at home in which the Spirit scored no goals in their first two home games, Washington has won two of their last three games at home (1L), scoring six goals.

Seattle Reign vs. FC Kansas City – 10 p.m. ET (go90.com)
Last weekend in Kansas City, these two teams drew 2-2, but this time Becky Sauerbrunn and Sydney Leroux travel to Seattle to face Megan Rapinoe and the Reign. Seattle and Kansas City have drawn two of their last three games (Seattle won the other meeting). Seattle has gone unbeaten in their last 10 home games (7W-3D). The Reign has outscored visitors 27-9 over that span.

Sunday, June 25

Chicago Red Stars vs. Sky Blue FC – 6 p.m. ET (go90.com)

The Chicago Red Stars, currently second in the standings, host the third-place Sky Blue FC in the only game set for Sunday. Christen Press, Julie Ertz, Alyssa Naeher and Casey Short welcome Kelley O’Hara to Toyota Park for what promises to be a highly competitive match between two sides aiming for to solidify their spots in playoff position.

Chicago has never lost to Sky Blue in 10 all-time meetings (4W-6D). Chicago has scored in every game against Sky Blue, outscoring them 18-10 all-time. The Red Stars are on a seven-game home unbeaten streak (5W-2D), tied for the third longest home unbeaten streak in franchise history.
