    02' 0-0 Mewis shoots from ~arc top mid-right to right post low, Harris kneels and collects.

    03' 0-0 Orlando through-ball to Morgan at 5m mid-left, Labbé slides out and smothers it off her foot.

    04' 0-0 NC right ck, cleared over 6-box. Dunn collects at box left, chips a cross to 8m center, Ln.Williams heads a bloop toward 1m 1/4 left and Harris catches.

    06' 0-0 Krieger dribbles past Dunn up wide right past midfield! Eventually Ubogagu misses a through-ball try.

    07' 0-0 Hill and Weatherholt mount a foray into NC's box right. Marta receives at arc top mid-right, tries left instep bend, alertly blocked by shins.

    18' 0-0 Marta comes back to 15m box left, right instep cross to 5m left post, Labbé dives and double-punches away. Marta drives down box left, crosses across mouth at 1m waist-high, Hill just misses a toe-poke/chest-block. Orlando do look much more active so far than their 1H on Saturday.


    20' 0-0 _ passes to Morgan at 25m center. Morgan stabs ball to a stop, fires a diagonal pass to Hill's foot at 18m arc right, perfect foot trap in stride as she pierces NC's high back line. Alas, Hill's 2nd touch clangs ahead too far to chase, Labbé slides out to 8m and smothers.

    30' 0-0 Zerboni plays Ln.Williams down wide left. Long cross to box top center eludes the scrum, Mewis runs on alone and shoots right foot rising, glances off crossbar right 90 and over.

    32' 0-0 Orlando s(w)erve a bending cross to Morgan at 12m 1/4 left, she hop-volleys over bar -- but offside.

    35' 0-0 McDonald scoops a cross from 2m box right to 6-top left, Dunn heads back across mouth. Mewis chests ball to self, can't snap a shot, touches rightward into O'Sullivan's space. Shot blocked by Zadorsky, O'Sullivan pulls a right roundhouse shot off Zadorsky again. Ball skitters across 5m center, Kennedy clears just before Williams can dunk.

    Had to watch the first half from my phone. But I'm home now. Ready to spam this thread...

    Hmm... I thought it was just my cell connection but I had it freeze twice on me as well. Had to restart the app to get it going again.

    Orlando has looked pretty good -- but Carolina is so fast, so relentless. How many shots did they take in the first half? 15?

    Dunn hasn't looked very good on defense with the NT -- but she's MVP caliber attacking with the Courage in these first two games. I agree with the announcer that Lynn Williams may be the fastest player in the NWSL -- and McDonald is not much slower.

    My yahoo stream has been good.

    42' 0-0 Dunn freezes Krieger at 15m box left, cuts inside hard and shoots quick right instep to left post low, Harris dives and blocks over endline left.

    44' 0-0 Pickett crosses high from 24m wide left to 4m 1/4 left, Labbé catches high.

    45' 1-0 Morgan turns away from Zerboni at circle back left, but leaves ball a bit too far in front of her. Dunn steals ball right off Morgan's foot at 30m center, counters through box top center, draws both CBs and pokes a pass to 6-top right. Ln.Williams arrives alone, shoots across mouth under Harris's right hand, into back left low. Disastrous turnover in that spot, with LB Pickett already way up, not being marked by Williams and not marking her, either.

    HT 1-0.

    53' 1-0 Hinkle(?) passes up wide left into McDonald's stride -- offside. McDonald wags a finger at the AR.

    55' 2-0 Krieger backpass to Kennedy, she kicks one-touch upfield to clear -- but blocked point-blank by Ln.Williams sticking a foot in. Ball deflects to McDonald lurking at 12m 6-left, she snipes across mouth into back right low.

    56' 2-0 Marta turns amidst traffic at 10m 6-right, shot deflects upward off Erceg's foot and lands on the roof center.

    NCC needs to stop with their fancy set pieces. They've got tall players who are good in the air. Just serve the ball in and let them win it.

    64' 2-0 Zerboni fouls Ubogagu at 35m right post. Ubogagu resumes gingerly, with slight limp. Yellow card on Zerboni.

    65' 2-0 Marta fk at 35m right post, toward spot, van Egmond backs under ball and twist-heads rightward -- just wide and not enough power anyways, Labbé comes out and catches the bounce.

    66' 2-0 Dunn cuts inside at arc top mid-left, shoots left foot rising hard -- into Kennedy's jaw/throat. Ball bounces away, Kennedy stays down on back. Stoppage.

    68' 2-0 Kennedy walks into near touch and promptly reports to 4R to return. Ref allows her to resume at the end of her own stoppage? NC attacks again, and Kennedy stoop-heads away :)

    Welp someone help Orlando. They were doing really well and conceding that first goal have set them back

    69' 2-0 Mewis bursts past Zadorsky to 8m mid-right, shoots right foot to right post low, Harris dives and blocks it over.

    70' 3-0 Dahlkemper right ck, short to Mewis, one-touch right instep cross to 4m left post. Ln.Williams heads down off Kennedy's turned back, ball bounces out to 6-top center. Dunn is first to it, lifts knee-high left instep and half-volleys into the scrum, ball deflects down off Weatherholt's arms to right post low, bounces in.

    I'm sure they're busy looking for another high caliber forward they can add to the team...

    77' 4-0 Dahlkemper right ck, short tap back to Mewis, one-touch cross to 8m left post. McDonald pokes ball down to 5m right post, Morgan blocks but clangs it away to 6m, lunges to chase. Dunn races Morgan head-on, swings right foot through ball, somehow bends it just past Morgan's right edge -- and blasts it rising into back left edge high. Note to league: win the first ball --

    I don't think it's looking good for either of us... ;)

    At least we'll get the +1 for the 4, assuming NCC doesn't score again

    74' 3-0 North Carolina subs in (1 of 3) #16 Julia Spetsmark for #9 Lynn Williams.

    87' 4-0 Camila crosses high toward arc top mid-left, Morgan offside chasing. Orlando just don't have enough speed up front to have multiple options all getting behind on the same play.

    88' 5-0 Kennedy clears from own arc top mid-right -- blocked by Spetsmark, ball deflects to 24m center. Pruitt taps back to Hamilton, one-touch pass to Spetsmark at arc left. Spetsmark jukes centerward, shoots right instep, ball deflects off Zadorsky's turned back, bloops upward and drops toward 1/4 right high. Harris dives and pushes ball up off crossbar bottom, ball bounces straight down off Harris's legs, bounces goalward into 1/3 right back low. +4'.

    FT 5-0. And North Carolina killed off the game by repeatedly attacking Orlando's box. Orlando's brutal week doesn't get easier, at Reign this Saturday.

    Crystal Dunn seems to like them just fine.
