    15' 0-0 Yellow card on Krieger, for a foul on Ln.Williams.

    19' 0-1 Orlando turnover, RB Edmonds is caught above circle back right touch, out of the play, which isolates Debinha and Ln.Williams on Krieger and Pressley :oops: Milliet turns at circle half-front left, Debinha starts her run past circle top left, using the 5m of cushion in front of Krieger as a runway. Milliet chips into space up arc left, Debinha cruises right past Krieger wrong-footed at 30m mid-left, Krieger never even accelerates. Debinha chases alone to box top mid-left, touches to 8m 3-left, snipes right instep under Harris's left hand, into center back low.

    40' 0-1 Solaun dribbles through arc top mid-left, rolls a vertical pass down mid-right for Debinha -- and continues her own run through spot. Debinha passes back to Solaun at 7m center, Solaun chips one-touch right instep and floats it just over bar :alien:

    42' 0-1 Harris punts(?) to circle back right, Elinsky jumps and inadvertently drives left elbow into teammate Leroux's forehead. Ball bounces over both, Orlando lose it into far touch? Stoppage, Leroux is leaking blood from split skin in her forehead. Trainers emerge, sit her down and turban-wrap a wad of gauze, then administer an eye-tracking test.

    45' 0-1 Leroux trots into near touch and awaits re-entry as trainers adjust the wrap to keep it out of her eyes. Orlando resumes with 10. +6'.

    45+1' (of +6') 0-1 Leroux returns.

    45+5' (of +6') 0-2 Milliet leads a breakout through circle back left, passes through midfield box left into Debinha's stride. Ln.Williams veers centerward through circle top to stay inside Petersen, stays on Pressley's heels. Debinha bends a pass from circle top box left to arc top left post, Ln.Williams easily turbos past Pressley and Petersen, touches alone to 15m 1/4 right, shoots right foot past Harris's dive, bounces into back right low.

    45+6' (of +6') 0-3 Harris(?) strands Krieger with a heavy outlet to midfield box right. Milliet arrives just-in-time to challenge, stuff-blocks ball off Krieger's foot, chases it through circle top left, to 27m mid-left. Pressley must rotate over, Debinha veers inside Petersen through 25m mid-right. Petersen overcompensates to stay inside Debinha but sheds speed, Debinha veers outside. Milliet sees the closure rate, bends early-enough cross around Pressley, to 9m 3-right. Debinha pulls away from Petersen, taps one-touch right instep past Harris's right foot, into back left low. NC must train these patterns, it's like they have an unfair advantage in knowing where each other will be.

    HT 0-3. Orlando 4(0)-(5)11 shots(sog), 1-1 corners, 8-10 crosses vs. 6-3 clearances, 1-2 offsides, 4-6 fouls, 57% possession. NC has no possession because the net swiftly gets in the way :p

    54' 1-3 Perea mis-hits a pass behind Debinha to circle right, Blackwood reflects ball to Marta at circle top (Orlando's) left. Marta rides off Perea's hip-challenge to arc top mid-left, fires a ground pass to Leroux at 14m center. Leroux one-touches a sidestep past Roccaro, to 14m left post, turns and fires left roundhouse across mouth, to 2m 1/3 left. Rowland dives and scoop-slaps with left hand, but pushes ball too far away, to 5m 1/3 right. Viggiano overtakes 3 defenders from 16m right post, slides and pokes ball under Rowland's dive, into center back low.

    60' 1-3 Orlando subs in { 1st of 3 }:
    - (1 of 5) #17 Carrie Lawrence for #8 Deneisha Blackwood.

    60' 1-3 North Carolina subs in { 1st of 3 }:
    - (1 of 5) #22 Hailey Harbison for #32 Havana Solaun.

    68' 1-3 Debinha fk at 25m box right, simple bending serve to 5m 1/4 left. Ln.Williams ghosts right through Orlando's soft scrum unmarked, volleys left instep low rising off crossbar 1/3 left, it reflects away to the right. Somebody blew a coverage.

    71' 2-3 Leroux and Elinsky hold at arc top wide right, seem to look for a trap-breaking pass down wide right that never emerges. Leroux turns away and backpasses to Listro. One-touch entry pass to Lawrence facing away at arc top wide right, Milliet leaves Edmonds and joins 2 other defenders to converge on her. Lawrence quickly taps right outstep between Milliet and Harbison, to Edmonds no longer marked at arc top box right. Dahlkemper rotates over but drops back into coverage, Edmonds creeps inside to 15m mid-right, shoots left instep bend around Rowland's dive, perfectly into back left low.

    In the race for 3rd, we have:
    7+1 (+5-4) Washington
    4-2 (+5-7) North Carolina
    So NC needs any 3-goal win to tie on points and GD, and claim 3rd on goals scored. At halftime, they were in 3rd, but Orlando's goals have toppled them off.

    90+1' (of +4') 2-3 Kurtz fouls Edmonds at 30m box right.

    90+2' (of +4') 3-3 Marta fk at 30m box right, left instep inswing to 6-top left post. Haran runs amidst 3 but reads it better than anybody, carries Debinha(?) along like wave under a surfboard, jumps alone and heads a soft bloop across mouth into back right low, with Rowland stranded.

    FT 3-3. Orlando finishes on 2 points, by holding North Carolina to two draws :barefoot: Washington takes 3rd, North Carolina finishes 5th, behind Sky Blue. All eyes :alien: on Louisville now.

    Orlando 11(4)-(6)16 shots(sog), 3-4 corners, 18-30 crosses vs. 20-9 clearances, 1-4 offsides, 8-10 fouls, 54% possession.

    14' 0-0 Huerta bends a cross from arc top wide right to 8m center. Ball boxes out Balcer and hop-heads straight up to goalline center, A.Smith catches high.

    16' 0-0 Balcer harasses at circle top mid-left, forces a bad square pass directly to Huerta at circle top right. Huerta counters 2-v-3 up centerline, passes diagonal right to White at 14m mid-right. White's plant foot slips(?) and she leans back on her shot, slices it high and wide right.

    18' 0-0 T.King counters 3-v-5 and slips a pass to Rodriguez at box top mid-left, she holds up. Diallo underhits a long switch right, Hammond heads it upfield. Reign counter the other way, Balcer dribbles through box top mid-left to 6m, shoots to left 90(?), A.Smith palms it over bar. End to end!

    20' 0-0 Huerta slips a pass to Cruz at 15m center -- and continues her own run. Cruz turns and passes to Balcer at 12m mid-right, Balcer passes to Huerta coming through box top center. Huerta cuts left, shoots to 1/4 left, A.Smith blocks ball down to 4m 1/4 left. Cruz darts in, Leach clears ball and they collide, both go down. Brief stoppage, all resume.

    22' 0-0 Huerta crosses from 5m mid-right to 6m center, Ball(?) heads away. Reign are getting a lot of touches in Utah's box.

    23' 0-0 Lytle left ck, Brooks heads away. Utah dump ball back into box mid-left, Weatherholt(?) heads to Cox, ...

    24' 1-0 ... quick touch to Cruz cruising through circle back box right, and Reign have a 4-v-2 break the other way, with Huerta unmarked down mid-right lane from midfield to 12m. Cruz passes to Huerta, Huerta touches to 7m mid-right, shoots hard to right post low -- and it sneaks between A.Smith's legs, into 1/4 left back low. This pace is kind of fun, and Utah are contributing to it by frequently sending LB Weber and RB Bowen up to midfield.

    41' 1-0 A.Smith clears to 25m mid-left, directly to Cruz. Cruz touches to 22m mid-left and draws a small crowd, passes square right to White at arc top. White turns and shoots just wide left as A.Smith dives.

    45' 1-0 White fk at 35m left touch, sailed to 5m mid-right. Cruz chases it down behind the scrum, Bowen pokes ball over just as Cruz swings right foot at ball and impales self upon Bowen's cleats. Stoppage, Cruz stays down, grasping right foot. +4'.

    45+5' (of +4') 1-0 Brooks chips from midfield wide right to 10m 6-right, Leach boxes out Balcer and A.Smith collects. Reign can afford to speculate a bit.

    45+6' (of +4') 1-0 White settles at circle top left and counters up left post lane to 25m. Lytle overtakes her with a good recovery run, White passes to Huerta at 14m mid-right. Huerta shoots right foot toward right 90, slices it way high.

    45+7' (of +4') 1-0 Reign send everybody up to attack, Pruitt chases ball down through 3m box left, crosses over mouth to endline mid-right. Brooks(!!) is way up there and hoofs ball back to box top left, McNabb(!!) watches as ball bounces right over her head. Ratcliffe breaks to midfield wide right, McNabb catches up and gives a professional hip-check. Foul, yellow card on McNabb.

    HT 1-0. OL Reign 15!(5)-(2)3 shots(sog), 3-1 corners, 10-1 crosses vs. 3-11 clearances, 2-0 offsides, 12-6 fouls, 47% possession. If this is a glimpse of Benstiti's master plan, it looks pretty good.

    51' 2-0 Cox double-teams T.King at circle right, pokes ball loose. White collects and dribbles to 33m box right, quickly passes to Balcer at arc top right. Balcer clangs ball off left instep square left to Pruitt at box top center. Pruitt taps centerward to shield from Bowen overtaking her on the left, quickly shoots a standing right foottop bloop that perfectly mini-lobs A.Smith, into back left edge 1/2 high.

    - (2 of 5) #27 Samantha Hiatt (1st cap!) for #28 Shirley Cruz

    86' 2-0 OL Reign subs in { 3rd of 3 }:
    - (4 of 5) #22 Jasmyne Spencer for #24 Bethany Balcer. +3'.

    90+1' (of +3') 2-0 Yellow card on Spencer, probably for delay.

    FT 2-0. OL Reign 23(11)-(5)10 shots(sog), 8-2 corners, 24-6 crosses vs. 10-30 clearances, 3-2 offsides, 18-11 fouls, 50% possession. Reign were the aggressors by a decisive margin. I give brevet-HC LePeilbet a partial pass because she's cleaning up Utah's previous ownership debacle.

    OL Reign finishes 7th at 4-2, trailing Chicago at 4=0. Utah finishes 9th at 2-5, behind Orlando at 2-3. NWSL's grand experiment of pro soccer in a bubble ends pretty smoothly. Congrats to all involved for pulling it off.
