Well that was unpleasant.
The Thorns lost in the playoff semifinals to the Red Stars for the second time in a row. None of our players scored a point from the run of play. 4-4-2 got the wild bonus for the Return of KK.
[0-2 loss, Johnson from DiBernardo, Waldmoe from Gautrat. Salem yellow card, no red card. A perfect prediction was worth 17 points.]
