 ๐ŸŽ“๐ŸฅŽUW: After losing to Michigan on Saturday, No. 16 UW rallied to beat the Wolverines twice yesterday in the double-elimination tournament to move on to Super Regionals. Pitcher Gabbie Plain threw 97 pitches in the 2โ€“0 shutout before coming back 40 minutes later to toss 112 more pitches in seven innings in the winner-takes-all game. Superstar.

โšฝ๏ธOL Reign: OL Reign won an intense Cascadia clash yesterday, defeating the Portland Thorns 2โ€“1. Forward Megan Rapinoe scored her first regular season goal in almost three years and midfielder Shirley Cruz netted another in the 15th minute. Talk your sh!t, Megan. 

๐Ÿ€Storm: The Storm beat the Dallas Wings in an 100โ€“97 overtime (OT) thriller on Saturday. Breanna Stewart dominated with 36 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks en route to a new milestone (more on that below), but it was Jordin Canada who came up clutch. 

  • Canadaโ€™s floater with 4.4 seconds left in regulation forced the extra period and her two free throws in OT iced the victory. O Canada. 

โšพ๏ธMariners: The Mariners were swept by the San Diego Padres yesterday, but the Mโ€™s COVID-19 situation has us a little more worried than their offensive woes. Eek.
