Seattle Reign FC’s 2017 record at Memorial Stadium remains intact thanks to forward Megan Rapinoe. Rapinoe scored her second brace in two games, with Saturday night’s pair of goals both coming from the run of play. The Reign bag all three points, and move to 4-0-3 at home, and 5-2-5 so far this season. The Reign’s 20 points now has them in third place on the table with Saturday’s games concluded.

Despite a large contingent of traveling support from the Rose City Riveters, the Thorns struggled to connect offensively. Seattle held them to only three shots on goal — one in the first half, two in the second. Rapinoe had five shots on target for the Reign.

While it looked like Seattle and Portland would head to the locker rooms at the half knotted at 0-0 after the first half, Rapinoe decided otherwise. Portland was working on keeping possession in their own half, and as defender Emily Sonnett played a touch back toward her own goal, Rapinoe turned the jets on. She dispossessed Sonnett in the box, and Portland Thorns FC goalkeeper Adrianna Franch came out for a last-ditch attempt to clear the ball with her feet. Rapinoe slid into her shot and finished into the left corner during stoppage time.

Portland’s hopes of a late equalizer for a point at Memorial disappeared in the 81st minute after Rapinoe’s second goal. Midfielder Christine Nairn launched Rapinoe into space, and Rapinoe got her left foot on the half volley to finish past Franch.

After Rapinoe’s second brace of the week, she’s up to nine goals this season and the Reign have scored a league-leading 24. No other team has yet to crack 20 goals scored.

The Thorns’ best look on goal came from midfielder Lindsey Horan, who picked up a turnover in the box from Reign defender Kristen McNabb. Seattle goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer came up with save, one of her three on the night for the clean sheet.

While Seattle did get the win at home, they may have suffered quite the loss in their starting XI. Midfielder Jess Fishlock had to be subbed off in the 33rd minute after an awkward mid-air collision with Thorns midfielder Amandine Henry. Fishlock landed on her left leg, and was carried off the field by trainers. There’s no final word yet, but losing Fishlock, already a two-time Team of the Month honoree, would be a major blow for head coach Laura Harvey’s team.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for Seattle either, as they travel next week to Cary, North Carolina to face the first-place Courage on July 8. Portland stays on the road, and will face off against the Houston Dash at BBVA Compass Stadium on July 8.
