Portland heads across the country to take on the talented but underperforming Washington Spirit, who have no goals in their last two games despite featuring some of the top young American attacking talent. Mallory Pugh has only two shots in her last two games. Portland are only missing AD Franch and Hayley Raso from their preferred first XI but keep making defensive mistakes to give away results.
