MORNING BRIEFING: Top-ranked USC falls at Portland

MOST COMMENTED

USC, No. 1 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25, fell to Portland, 1-0, on Monday when Canadian Olympian Sophie Schmidt scored on an golden goal in the 97th minute.

Schmidt scored when she tapped in a rebound of Charney Burk's shot off the inside of the right post. Burk's shot followed a move by Elli Reed down the right side and cross in the middle.

"It was a moment of brilliance by Elli getting down the sideline and sending a quality cross," Portland coach Garrett Smith said. "Charney got off a quality shot and Sophie did a great job of being opportunistic."

Portland held a 16-9 edge in shots for the match and 7-3 advantage in corner kicks.

RAPINOE SCARE. Redshirt senior Rachael Rapinoe came off the field after injuring her knee in the 11th minute. Rapinoe suffered a season-ending knee injury four games into last season and was granted a medical redshirt. She is expected to see a doctor later this week for further information. Asked about her knee after the game, she told the Oregonian, "I think so." Her twin sister, Megan, has twice suffered season-ending knee injuries.

TEAM EFFORT. Seven different players scored for No. 3 UCLA in its 7-0 victory over Portland State at PCC-Rock Creek. Olympians Lauren Cheney (USA) and Kara Lang (Canada) got the ball rolling with early goals.
