Post Match: 15%

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports The Vancouver Whitecaps still have a chance. Their 2-0 victory over Austin F.C coupled with a win for San Jose over Minnesota and a draw between LA Galaxy and RSL has given the ‘Caps a slim chance of making the playoffs. I am not smart enough to keep track of all the permutations but a bunch of nerds over at five-thirty-eight have determined that Vancouver has a 15% chance of making the playoffs. Compared to the 1% chance they had a couple of weeks ago, I will take that. But I suppose we should talk about the game at hand as well....

OL Reign win the NWSL Shield

Nikita Taparia A record crowd of 10,746 witnessed OL Reign win the shield and finish first in the standings. SEATTLE — OL Reign’s regular-season finale was still a match of consequence. While their ticket to the NWSL Playoffs was punched last weekend, their final 2022 regular season match at Lumen Field was still crucial to send them to the playoffs in style and with momentum. And they did just that with a decisive win in front of a new standalone attendance record: 10,746. Even before kickoff, OL Reign’s playoff seed was already set — other matches around the...

Match Preview: Seattle Sounders at Sporting Kansas City

Kayla Mehring One last regular season road game with everything in the balance. The Seattle Sounders head out on the road for what could be the last time in 2022, heading to face Sporting Kansas City on Sunday in a game that they absolutely need to win if there’s any chance of them getting into the playoffs. The Sounders have been in virtual must-win territory for a while now, but this 2 PM PST kickoff is the first literal must-win as anything less leaves them with too much room to make up with only three more points available and five points between themselves and...

Realio’s Ratings: Another draw when a win was required

Max Aquino / Sounder at Heart Patented Fredy wonder-strike salvages point, nothing more. Seattle faced a must-win game at home against Cincinnati and did not come through. Despite a resurgent second half performance, there were too many big mistakes, and the Sounders couldn’t overcome multiple player absences and a lack of cohesion, which ultimately led to a 1-1 tie. This doesn’t officially end the Sounders season, but the chance of Seattle making the playoffs for a 14th straight year is remote. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei – 6 | Community – 7.4 Frei has had a...

Federico Bernardeschi in possession of the ball against Miami midfielder Bryce Duke. | (Sean Pollock/Waking The Red) A late Gonzalo Higuain goal gave the Herons all three points on Friday night at BMO Field. And that’s a wrap on MLS home games this season at BMO Field. There were some ups for the Reds throughout the year at the house on Lakeshore, and also a lot of downs - including a painful 1-0 defeat against Inter Miami on Friday night. TFC had the majority of chances in the first half, but failed to convert on any of them. In the seventh minute, a pass from...

Coffee with the Caps, Friday September 30

Photo by Christopher Morris - Corbis/ Good Friday morning Caps fans, hope you all have had a good week and are gearing up for a well-deserved rest. The international break has drawn to a close and none too soon for CONCACAF sides, who generally speaking got battered. Canada was one of the few who could save face, though their 2-0 defeat to Uruguay was suboptimal. The loss featured just two shots on target, in what could be interpreted as a sign of how far Canada has to go to become a real contender on the international stage. While the match was humbling, I think this...

Cristian Roldan happy to be back and pain-free

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Midfielder hopes he can help push Sounders into playoffs and maybe earn a spot on World Cup roster in the process. TUKWILA — Much of Cristian Roldan’s MLS career has been defined by his durability. Being a physical player, he’s endured plenty of bumps and bruises — and even played several games with a cast after breaking his arm in 2017 — but he’d never experienced an extended injury-related absence. That changed last month when the pain he felt after suffering an athletic pubalgia had gotten so bad that he had little choice...
