The No. 2-ranked Portland women’s team suffered another huge blow when U.S. international Megan Rapinoe was lost for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee for the second time in less than a year. 

Megan’s twin sister, Rachael Rapinoe, was diagnosed with the same season-ending injury last week, leaving the Pilots without two of their top offensive threats.

Megan Rapinoe, whose 2006 season was cut short by the same injury, appeared in just two matches in 2007. She played 13 minutes against Cal State Fullerton on Sept. 7 and came off the bench for most of the second half against Purdue on Sept. 9 before re-injuring the knee in practice. The tear was confirmed by doctors on Thursday.
 
Without the Rapinoe twins, the Pilots crushed crosstown rival Portland State, 7-0, on Sunday.
