The Washington Spirit roll on with their third straight win to open the 2016 season, 3-0 over the Western New York Flash on Friday night. They continue to sit atop the table. For the complete game story, click here. After a season opening home win against the Boston BreakersIn and road wins against Sky Blue FC and Western New York, the Spirit return home next Saturday, May 7 to take on the formidable Portland Thorns, coached by Mark Parsons, former coach of the Spirit.
As previously advertised, BRYC purchased 80 unreserved grandstand tickets for this season's games. Regularly priced at $25, the tickets were available to BRYC teams and families at a discounted price to show BRYC's support for the fourth-year professional women's club and encourage attendance.
After a month in which only four tickets had been siold, the floodgates opened this week with the sale of ALL the remaining tickets. Three BRYC teams have scheduled events and a handful of individual families will be going, many to see the Spirit take on the Hoston Dash on May 14 and a bunch of others to see Alex Morgan and the Orlando Pride in mid-June. At least one young player has already told her mom that she's torn between cheering for Alex or cheering for the Spirit!
In any event, the Webmaster is happy to report that there will be 80 happy BRYC folks in the stand at th net few Spirit home games, but orry to report that no mor discounted tickets remain. We're SOLD OUT. That doesn't mean that there aren't still great seats for all th remaining home games this season or that they aren't till a bargain, even at a slightly higher price. After a May 7 matchup vs. the Portland Thorns, the Spirit remain at home the following week for the match against Houston on May 14, before they take on Orlando in mid-June. When our spring season ends, the Spirit keep on playing thorugh the summer with five Saturday night home games before the start of our fall season and a final Wednesday night game just after Labor Day.
