I'm leaving town tomorrow (in part to see the game in person), so I want to start the discussion now. After our last two games with the Charge, I think they have good reason to be a little nervous about the prospect of facing us in the playoffs. However, since the Courage trounced us, 3-1, the last time we faced them, they don't have much reason to be likewise. It would be nice to change that as well as all but clinch a playoff spot with a win. "White on rice" is going to have her toughest challenge yet if she ends up on Prinz - Katia is actually taller than Prinz, but Prinz is by far the more physical. Tiffany Roberts' ejection should help us, and if Steffi Jones can have another commanding game in the midfield, we should have a chance. I'm still frustrated with our attack: against San Diego, we didn't even get the chances, let alone finish them. (C. Moore led the team in shots in the first half with two - not a good sign.) We'd be very lucky to beat the Courage with just one goal. It's not clear to me why Carolina has faltered in the past couple of games, but it would be great for us if the slump continued - and if it gets extended, we might even get a home playoff game!
