⚽️Soccer: Though the NWSL isn’t back in action until April’s Challenge Cup, two OL Reign players — Megan Rapinoe and Quinn — are taking the pitch in the SheBelieves Cup tonight...just for opposing teams. 

  • Defender Quinn, representing Canada, will square off against forward Rapinoe and the Americans at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Sorry Quinn, but good luck against the USWNT.  
  • Last month’s friendlies against Colombia were Rapinoe’s first game-action in nearly a year, and she made her mark with two goals. More ’Pinoe celebrations, please.

🥎Softball: But before the US-Canada soccer showdown, we’ll be watching No. 2 UW softball deliver bombs against BYU today at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. The Huskies opened their season with a bang last week, winning all five games of the UNLV Tournament. 

  • Pitcher Gabbie Plain’s dominance on the mound led the Huskies’ efforts. The Australian Olympic team hopeful threw a perfect game in the season opener and hasn’t allowed a run yet this year. What, like it’s hard?
