The United States should be less focused on revenge today, and more focused on simply making progress as a team

The United States can't avenge last summer's stunning Olympic defeat against Sweden today. The Swedes went on to the Gold Medal game, after all, while the USWNT had a minor crisis that extended into a dismal performance in March's SheBelieves Cup.

The Spirit saw a four-game road trek end with a resounding defeat

The inconsistency that has dogged the Washington Spirit all season came back again tonight, as they followed Friday's 4-1 road win with a 3-0 road loss to the Orlando Pride.

Pugh's 90th minute penalty kick gave the Spirit a point in front of a sellout home crowd

It wasn't the result they were looking for, but the Washington Spirit showed some real fight in coming back twice to get a 2-2 draw before a sellout crowd of 5,200 at the Maryland Soccerplex. Marta twice gave the visitors the lead, with a 10th minute penalty kick and a 56th minute shot through traffic, but Mallory Pugh responded both times with a goal of her own, including a 90th minute spot kick after Kristie Mewis drew the foul.

Could she be the missing attacking piece?

The Boston Breakers have claimed 25-year-old forward Katie Stengel after she was waived by the Washington Spirit.

To maintain the 20-player roster cap, the Breakers have waived defender Kylie Strom.

Stengel had 222 minutes over five games for the Spirit and no goals or assists; with the Spirit starting to find their rhythm through the work of Francisca Ordega and Cheyna Williams, and the return of Mallory Pugh hopefully imminent, that didn't leave much room for Stengel to break in.
