    I'm tentatively planning on attending the Orlando match at 7:30 Saturday night [busy season at my job permitting] but I can't help wondering about Tobin Heath's camp apparently starting at 10 AM the next morning in her New Jersey hometown the following day.
    https://www.procamps.com/tobinheath

    Not sure if I'm being paranoid about the tight turnaround, but I'd be very disappointed not to see Heath at the game, particularly at this crucial juncture in the Thorns' campaign to secure a playoff spot. Anyone care to put my mind at ease?

    Also a little paranoid about having to buy a smartphone-entry-only ticket without owning a smartphone and hoping I can successfully convert it into a paper one at the box office before the game [as I've been able to in the past].

    I will be at the Orlando vs Red Stars game in Orlando on August 25. Will you be there?

    I'm afraid not. I'll be pushing my luck with this trip. Things only get busier at work until the end of September.

    OK. Cool. I enjoy meeting BS friends at games. Maybe another time as I go to Orlando for games often.

    It's a 4:30 pm game in Orlando. No trouble getting to NJ in time for the camp -- unless the airlines fumble.

    Its at 7:30 pm local time, 4:30 pacific. :) Still doable, but definitely airline dependent.

    I can hear you, @Semblance17! I don't have a smartphone either, but luckily it seems like here in Europe it's still possible to print the tickets and to have them converted into paper ones. That's at least what I am doing here at U-20 WWC and everything is fine so far.

    Go, analogic resistance!!! :ninja:

    UTAH-WAS. The stream I am getting stinks. On the computer, the game skips around and repeats. Not to mention poor picture quality. On the Ipad, it freezes up and the circle thingy goes round and round.

    What a mess. The stream doesn't work. And even the NWSL site in the play-by-play doesn't announce every substitution. Who knows when Arod went off and Matheson came on.

    [UTA-WAS] Stengel for Matheson; Tymrak => LF for Gorry (and Press => LM); S.Johnson for Sauerbrunn; Miramontez for Bowen.

    Lavelle for Solaun; Pugh for Ordega; Eubanks for Dydasco; Sullivan for Dougherty Howard; Bledsoe for Haracic.

    Utah: Q Scott Thorsnes / OUT Arlitt* Doniak* Laddish* O’Hara (* = SEI)
    Washington: Q none / OUT Banini Matthews Weimer Wys

    Wow, Washington's report shrank to 1/2 a line. And they get another one back!
    31' 0-0 Washington subs in (1 of 3) #17 Cali Farquharson for #11 Mallory Pugh.
    73' 0-0 Washington subs in (3 of 3) #3 Caprice Dydasco for #17 Cali Farquharson.

    65' 0-0 Utah subs in (1 of 3) #12 Taylor Lytle for #15 Erika Tymrak.
    73' 0-0 Utah subs in (2 of 3) #10 Diana Matheson for #8 Amy Rodriguez.

    74' 1-0 Labonta(?) slips a pass between 2 to Lytle unmarked at circle top wide right. Lytle turns and sees Matheson outrunning Church up mid-right lane, passes to her at 25m. E.Johnson steps up to face off with Matheson, Matheson dummies ball through her legs, it rolls untouched to arc tangent right. Stengel comes back to ball and collects, turns to box top right post and pulls right foot shot hard across mouth, it skips under Bledsoe and bounces into back left low.

    80' 1-0 Utah subs in (3 of 3) #4 Becky Sauerbrunn for #21 Christen Press ... who is listed as a defensive midfielder :coffee:

    FT 1-0. Washington creeps closer to full strength, but they're ... rusty?

    Impressive.

    But did anyone watch this game? I'd love to know more about Utah's lineup.

    You just gotta be impressed with how fast NC is. Every player seems to be a speed demon. And never tiring.

    That being said, I thought the best player on the field in the first half was Erceg for NC. She stuffed Kerr and other Chi players several times when they got near the goal.

    Very flat second half from North Carolina.

    Remember, Chicago has not played since July 14.

    I thought Chicago played fantastic in the second half. The Red Stars I saw live tonight especially in the second half is a playoff team.

    21' 0-1 Mathias square pass left to O'Sullivan at circle top mid-right, one-touch pass to Dunn at 40m box right. Short is that high on Dunn's back -- is Chicago in a 3-4-3? Dunn spins past Short, McDonald sees space and curls down wide right into the void behind Short, LCB Ertz backpedals but must front Dunn and let McDonald go alone. Meanwhile, Ln.Williams is just-onside on RB Gilliland at 27m arc left, and nobody has Debinha loping behind them at 32m. (And Naughton, halfway between Ertz and Gilliland, has nobody, but that's not her fault -- she's in the right zone to help stop Dunn's threat.)

    Dunn rolls a pass down wide right, McDonald catches up at 5m, Ln.Williams crowds space to spot, dragging Gilliland inside with her. McDonald crosses one-touch to 6-top 1/6 left, ball drops just over Ln.Williams jumping and Gilliland not jumping. Debinha runs on and spike-heads down to 4m, ball bounces up over Naeher's fingertips into center back high. Mautz was the closest chaser, but not close.

    61' 0-1 DiBernardo touches to 10m wide left, passes to Brian at 13m box left. Brian sets up O'Sullivan with a step-past spin ccw, touches back to 16m mid-left, shoots right foot curl off left post 1/3 high, ball bounces away to the left.

    64' 1-1 DiBernardo left ck, to 6-center, S.Mewis heads away. Colaprico retrieves, passes square right to DiBernardo at 23m wide right, Dahlkemper comes out to face up, all others reload for the box-top baton exchange. DiBernardo touches inside to 26m box right, Kerr raises arm and starts her back-cut lean-and-go behind Erceg. DiBernardo crosses to 10m 1/4 left, Erceg reacts to the ball but juuuust misses a jump-header (that's what happens when you don't go with the run in the first place). Kerr twist-heads perfectly to 1m left post, ball bounces in under Rowland's dive. Pinpoint pass threaded the needle, and Kerr is a walking textbook for finishing.

    FT 1-1.

    The ref called a foul on her for barging into the defender as she went up to head the ball. I think if it happened 7 yards from the goal instead of 2 yards, it might not have been called, but the defender pretty much crashed into Naeher on the play, making it look bad.

    [UTA-SEA] Six changes for the 2nd match in 3 days. Matheson for Tymrak; Gorry for Rodriguez (and Press => CF); Lytle for Stengel; Sauerbrunn for S.Johnson; Bowen for Miramontez; Smith for Barnhart.

    Andrews for McNabb; Westphal for Kleiner.

    weather.com for Sandy, Utah says 93°F (34°C), high of 100°F (38°C), UV index 9/10.
    AIRNow.gov for Sandy/SLC says: ozone 58 = moderate, 2.5µ particles 106 = unhealthy for sensitive groups.

    2.5µ is typically carbon soot from fires. It looks like white haze, because it's the sweet spot of the Mie solution for particles of approximately the same size as the wavelength of light (2,500 nm ~= 4 blue = 5 green = 6 red wavelengths), and the Mie solution says that all wavelengths scatter through equal angles. So white light scatters as white light, and the haze looks white.

    It smells like ... campfire.
