Tune in to FOX Soccer to watch Megan Rapinoe, Hope Solo and Diana Matheson take to the field in Tukwila, WA for Week 14. Currently, Washington Spirit sits in last place while Seattle is one point ahead of them in league standings. This could be Washington’s chance to score some major points under the leadership of new head coach Mark Parsons.

But Seattle is on a winning streak and plan to keep it that way, remaining unbeaten in the last four matches. Hope Solo has been keeping the opposition out of the net, having stopped 39 out of 45 shots in six games since she made her NWSL debut.

Washington have struggled and currently lie bottom of the table.
