Soccer Quick Hits: December 1st, 2021

🇺🇸USWNT: The USWNT’s 2021 campaign came to a close early yesterday morning when the team played to a 1–1 draw in a friendly against Australia. While it was an anticlimactic end to the year, forward Ashley Hatch netted her second goal in as many games, making us even more excited for 2022. Future’s looking real bright.

⭐NWSL: In other USWNT news, a star player is on the move. 2020 U.S. Soccer Female Player of the Year Sam Mewis was traded from the North Carolina Courage to the newly rebranded Kansas City Current yesterday, a blockbuster deal to start the offseason. Getcha popcorn ready.

😅MLS playoffs: No. 4 NYCFC stunned the top-seeded New England Revolution yesterday, advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals by winning a penalty kick shootout. Down to the wire.

  • They’ll look for another upset in their Sunday matchup against the No. 2 Philadelphia Union, while either the No. 4 Portland Timbers or No. 7 Real (pronounced REY-al) Salt Lake will claim the Western Conference title on Saturday.
