    Catley, Alleway, and Logarzo are all out of the game tomorrow with minor injuries.

    Also O'Hara is in camp attending every team meeting, but not participating in training. And Ellis on Krieger:

    I think you put the A-team on the field for the match with Australia.

    GK: Naeher
    D: Krieger, Sauerbrunn, Dahlkemper, Dunn
    M: Mewis, Horan, Ertz
    F: Heath, Morgan, Rapinoe

    That's the WC starting team as I see it (minus Krieger if O'Hara is healthy)

    I'm high........5,280 feet to be exact. The Governor of Colorado has declared April 4th as Lindsey and Mallory Day. Dish Network has the same start time (7:30 MT) as Direct TV but the parking lots open at 3:30 for those of us who need to soak up the atmosphere. Hopefully, the Krieger Fever Folks are out in force tonight.....Love Love Love their intense aura that they throw down.
    Holy Moly, Sam and Lisa are in town soooooo you know the back line will be challenged, check that - - extremely challenged.
    64, thats right people, 64 days till the opening match of the Women's World Cup. So close that you can start to taste it.
    8 hours and 21 minutes to Heaven on Earth.
    The Journey with these Women has, continues and will always be...........

    There must be some way to get rid of Lalas. Where's Tony?

    Listening to Alexi is like ...

    Listening to cats fighting.

    Listening to a stylus scratching across a record.

    ....
    Please add on!

    Alexi Lalas just said something I actually found funny: “there’s gonna be a drinking game this summer for every time someone mentions Hope Solo”

    14' 1-0 RB Carpenter is caught way up past circle back right touch, LB Dunn chips long over Carpenter's head up wide left toward 30m -- surely a taught response on any quick turnover. Full-sprint inside-out chase results, Morgan overtakes hapless RCB Polkinghorne on the inside, shoulder-charges her (actually ribs vs. ribs?) aside and down. Morgan chases the bounce alone to arc top mid-left, Heath trails 2 through arc top mid-right, stretching them. LCB Kennedy overcommits at arc top right, Morgan fakes endline and cuts centerward past her to 15m left post, shoots right instep on the run past Williams, into back right low.

    16' 1-0 Foord(?) drives to 1m mid-right, taps back to Kerr around 9m 6-right, one-touch shot just high.

    23' 1-0 Australia lobs a high cross from ~box top right to 8m mid-left, Naeher chases it all the way out and finally slide-catches under De Vanna(!) hopping aside. That looked a bit tentative by both of them. Where was the defense?

    Nice to see a ref I know and have worked (reffed) with in the Center. Karen Abt is a fine referee, would like to see her sent to a WC, maybe 2023?

    We're 1 for 5 in shutting out Top-Ten teams this year.

    That doesn't instill confidence.

    29' 1-1 Butt(?) slips a pass from midfield right touch to Kerr, she taps to Foord through circle top, 3(?)-v-5 speed counter as we oddly all backpedal. USA's back 4 are completely left-shifted, with RB Sonnett roughly central and the other 3 compressed leftward of her -- USA was trying a left-side squeeze press, and Australia broke it? Nobody is within 10m of De Vanna trailing through box top left, Foord delivers obvious diagonal pass to 12m mid-left. De Vanna touches once, shoots left instep across mouth over Naeher's left hand, into back right edge high. A tad too easy, but we were trying some gimmick and they out-gimmicked us. I suspect that Sonnett thinks like a CB or something :coffee:

    32' 1-1 USA long chip sends Heath past the high line at 25m wide right. Heath creeps down to box right foot, creeps inward to 6-right foot, drives a ground pass to 6m 1/3 right. Rapinoe reflects ball toward goalline center, Williams dive-saves, ball skitters leftward and spins toward left post. Carpenter chases back and scythes ball off own goalline, AR deems not completely over.

    33' 1-1 De Vanna(?) drives a ground cross to 5m 3-right behind USA's line, Kerr lunge-kicks and only tips it wide right.

    34' 1-1 Horan shoots from amidst a pack around arc top left toward crossbar 1/3 left, Williams tips it over.

    Naeher is playing well early on.
    ...
    Dang, I thought Heath was going to get one right before the end of the half.

    39' 1-1 van Egmond drives a forward pass from circle left to 24m mid-left. Kerr tracks ball over right shoulder, Sauerbrunn cuts off her angle -- Kerr does an instinctive plant-right-outstep-deflect pivot that redirects herself right 90 and ball into her stride, cuts centerward and shoots right instep. Dahlkemper slides and blocks with legs, ball bloops upward and drops toward right post. Naeher dives and probably would have gotten there anyways, ball lands just wide right. There is precedent, Kerr has done that tack-across-ball's-path move before. Who teaches that? Can we buy those training DVDs?

    40' 1-1 Horan fouls somebody at own arc top mid-left, stays down with ... lower-body twistage? Trainers come out, Horan walks off unassisted. No sub yet, USA resumes with 10.

    43' 1-1 Lavelle drives down to 6-top mid-left, stumbles past 2 to endline, gets to 6-left foot but hooks her cross directly to Polkinghorne(?). Poor clearance to box top left post, Heath runs on but whiffs clean :eek: (so: "runs over"?). Lavelle collects, shoots high.

    One of the Law changes for 2019/2020 being used tonight - on goal kicks (or any defensive free kick out of the box), ball does not have to leave the box to be considered in play. Both sides have done this on goal kicks.
