Washington Spirit Decide To Do Something About The Fact They Are Bad, Fire GM And Head Coach Jim Gabarra

It seems the Houston Dash’s 4-0 drubbing of the Spirit over the weekend proved to be the nail in the coffin for Washington Spirit coach and general manager Jim Gabarra. The result brought the Spirit’s winless streak to 12 (having lost 10 of those) with the side failing to notch a victory since May 23.

North Carolina Courage Clinch NWSL Shield, Tie League Record For Wins

The North Carolina Courage are the NWSL Shield winners. Again. The decisive match was set to be played on Saturday night but was postponed due to lighting, and when things finally did resume in Cary, North Carolina, Sunday morning, it was just another day at the office for the Courage. The team was able to bag a 3-0 win thanks to second half goals from Debinha and Lynn Williams. 

Delightful Daly Dummy Delivers Dash Demolition Of Washington, 4-0

The Houston Dash have never made the NWSL postseason in their four-year history. The club better known for being snubbed by USWNT stars is trying to change that, and a 4-0 rout of the Washington Spirit on Friday night could be just what they need to finally make it over the hump in their fifth year.

Liga MX Aims To Stop The Flop By Copying Women’s Game: ‘Get Up, Stop Being A Man!’

A weekend of petulance, playacting and red cards in Liga MX sent Tigres manager Tuca Ferretti over the edge, a reaction that was largely triggered after Guido Pizarro was given a straight red card in the 23rd minute for a fairly innocuous piece of contact with Toluca’s Luis Mendoza. 

US Women Crash Out At Group Stage Of U-20 World Cup For First Time Ever

A U.S. national soccer team being knocked out at the group stage of a major tournament is a headline that we don't often associate with the women’s side, but today produced an outcome not many in the soccer world could've predicted. The U.S. U-20 women’s national team saw its journey at the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup come to a shocking end before it really even got started. 

This Woman Hit The Most Impressive First-Time Volley Goal From Midfield You’ll Ever See

Was this the best women's soccer goal ever? 

Playing for Cliftonville in Northern Ireland’s Women’s Premiership, Billie Simpson smacked the ever-loving snot out of the ball to score what might be the best women's soccer goal of the year, if not ever. 

Not only did Simpson score from inside her own half, she struck a first-time volley straight off a 50-yard goal kick from Niamh Malley. 

Two Years After Her Suspension, What’s Hope Solo Been Up To?

August 12th, 2016 was a low point for the United States women’s national team. They were heading home from Rio after falling to Sweden in a penalty kick shootout in the quarterfinals. A fifth place finish for a team that had won gold at the previous two editions of the Summer Games, and who had just won the World Cup a year ago, was an embarrassment.

Carli Lloyd Had A Luis Suarez Moment Last Night

There was something vaguely familiar about yesterday’s Orlando Pride vs. Sky Blue match up: a handball clearance off the line in crunch time, a red card, a penalty, a penalty save. All right, it’s not exactly a World Cup knockout game and Carli Lloyd didn’t know much about the goal-saving move (it seems), but one can’t help but think of a certain Uruguayan striker by the name of Luis Suarez after seeing this.

Mexico Women's National Team Wins Gold At The Central American And Caribbean Games

The Mexico Women's National Team won the gold medal at the Central American and Caribbean Games on Monday night in Barranquilla, Colombia.

With staggering goals and extraordinary performances, Mexico bounced back from an early deficit in the final vs. Costa Rica.

Hallelujah! The NWSL’s Best Club Finally Played Against Europe's Best

Had the head of Lindsey Horan not come to the rescue in the dying seconds of the match against Australia last night, the USWNT would have been handed its first loss in over a year. Though they salvaged a draw, fans of the game have seen this before and the message is loud and clear: the rest of the world is catching up.
