No real surprises in the Chicago/Portland game. Kerr and Nagasato....I have been very impressed this season with Gorden -- who has blossomed. That Seattle goal looked me like a advert for fresh legs. Ubogagu comes in, skips past Erceg who is tired and makes a goal. And then Hamilton for NC, a sub with fresh legs, causes a goal. Despite the score, GK Murphy should get a tryout with the national team. It was funny watching her standing side by side with Crystal Dunn. Dunn comes up to about her chest. Ultimately, in my opinion, NC speed and conditioning won the game. NC an incredible 34 shots, 14 on goal.
