All of our punters outside Abell4 had a tough time guessing the Seattle draw.
Easy-peasy! Almost everyone got the result AND the clean sheet for Ciao Bella. Nobody quite expected the Batwomen to fold quite so badly, but everybody pretty much had the match as a whole figured out, so lots of the players rang up the changes.
(5-nil win, Porter (UA), Moultrie (Ryan), Everett (Weaver), Betfort (Pogarch), Weaver (UA) , YC – Dydasco, no red card)
Constant Weeder took the gold with a straight run; result, sheet, scorer/assist, and a peculiar tale of truly out-there kit reveal. But the top of table is still tight; four points differentiate the top four.

Now the Thorns flee the insanely-baking-heat of the soon-to-be-desert Pacific Northwest to try and nick a road result from Racing Louisville. The Racers have been surprisingly vulnerable at home, though, losing three out of five. The availability report has not been updated at the time of this writing, but their only losses as of 7/16 were internationals, and all should be back in action tomorrow if uninjured.
(Last meeting, July 3, 2021 at at Lynn Family Stadium, 0-2 Thorns win)
How this works:
Add a comment to this post. As your first line, put your predicted result, for example 3-1 Thorns.
In the body of your comment, start with the goals and assists, like so:
Salem (Free kick)
Next, name the first yellow card recipient: Merritt Mathias
Then a red card. (NOTE: no points awarded for correctly calling a red-card-free match, so take a guess.) Madison Pogarch for mimicking mooning the referee after getting an undeserved yellow.
Make your fun prediction,and give a “thumbs up” to anybody else’s prediction that tickles your fancy: The two teams meet up in the parking lot before the game to burn an effigy of Paul Riley. Nadine Angerer produces not one but two lighters from her pockets.

Some ground rules and explanations/clarifications (the fine print):
Comments must be posted before kickoff, but you can edit or amend an earlier prediction right up to the starting whistle.
Keep your scoreline predictions realistic. No crazy scores just to pad out your odds of getting goals and assists.
The goal/assist bonus is an additional point if you predict the correct scorer and assistant on the same goal, for example, you say Hubly scores from a Boureille assist and that is exactly what happens. P.S. if you say exactly that, and it happens, I will hunt you down and buy you a beer!
Be clear whether you think a goal will be unassisted, assisted, or from a PK/FK. Unassisted = no assist, run of play; Assisted = player who got the assist; PK/FK = not in run of play. For the purposes of this thread, Penalty Kick and Free Kick are the same thing. No entry means unassisted.
